1981 Mercedes-Benz 500SL (R107)

Anthracite Grey Metallic (172) with Grey Leather (278) and
Anthracite Grey Metallic Hardtop (172) Black Fabric Soft Top (9001)

80,000 miles

A lovely opportunity to acquire an early style R107 SL, with the characteristic exhaust note and the free flowing engine. These early R107s feel distinctly different to later cars, harking back to the driving experience of the great Mercedes of the earlier 70s and 60s. The howl of a V8 engine is more raucous and unrefined in an early car, whilst feeling light on it’s feet and as nimble as a big SL can.

This car has been known to SLSHOP for some years and benefits from significant recent expenditure. Eagle eyed readers will have noticed the shade of Anthracite Grey Metallic, a striking colour that we only wish appeared more in our showroom. Rare to find in a marketplace that’s dominated by blues and reds. Not a car to be missed.

Where will your Mercedes-Benz take you?

Bulkhead Corrosion

Although the R107 is renowned for build quality, there is one chink in the armour – the bulkhead. Many cars that present well from the outside are hiding internal rust. Water from outside the car should drain out through specially designed channels, but over time, these become blocked forcing water inside the car. Once water has breached the blower motor cover in front of the windscreen, it slowly wreaks havoc from inside out. This delicate area did not have rust protection from the factory, and as the metal deteriorates it the water ingress can lead to faulty electrics, damp carpets and musty smells inside the cabin.

All our cars come with a 36 month bulkhead warranty.
