Put it all on Black – Black Friday Special

Apologies to those of you who clicked this link expecting a Black Friday Discount on our showroom – unfortunately that’s just not our style.

The Mercedes-Benz R107 was made from 1971 to 1989, and in that time you could choose yours in 13 shades of Red, 15 shades of Blue and an impressive 17 shades of Green… but only two different shades of Black.

Black (040)

This shade appeared at launch in 1971, and is one of just four colours that lasted the entire production run. There were 97 colours available in the R107 colour palette spanning 1971 to 1989. Along with Black; Signal Red, Light Ivory and Anthracite Grey were all options from 1971 to 1989.

Blue Black (199)

Blue Black Metallic is a beautiful colour, more grey than a gloss black with the metallic giving it an extra layer of shine. It’s a softer and more forgiving colour than a pure black shade.

This is a very rare ‘Triple Black’ car with black coachwork, black leather and black soft top. Triple Black is an incredibly smart colour combination for an R107 SL, one we don’t see as often as we would like. Leather and rear seating would have been expensive optional extras back in 1989, making this a very carefully considered purchase for the first owner. This fine car shows just 31,000 miles for it’s 33 years, testament to decades of careful stewardship.

1968 Mercedes-Benz 280SL Pagoda – Black

This 1968 280SL is a rare car indeed. Right Hand Drive cars aren’t easy to find in good condition, and the black coachwork makes this an even more alluring find. The previous owner cared for this car for almost 30 years, a car that he’d known for more than four decades. Now showing just 50,000 miles on the odometer, the majority of these miles have been covered in the last 15 years. Recently this car has benefited from a significant amount of expenditure, including new front lights, front grille and front bumpers, all of which were genuine Mercedes-Benz parts. A large amount of documentation accompanies this car, including receipts and paperwork dating back to the early 1980s.

At the SLSHOP, we choose our cars carefully. Each vehicle has been selected for it’s merits, be that low mileage, exceptional provenance, specification, rarity or all of the above. We currently have over 60 cars available, take a look at our showroom to see the full range.
