1983 Mercedes-Benz R107 380SL with Grey Leather (278)
Black (040) with Grey Leather (278) / 380SL
Near unrepeatable R107 with minimal and confirmed 17,374 miles from new in 1983. Now classed as historic, due to this 380SL being first registered in March 1983 (built earlier that year/late 1982) you could cruise the streets of the capital in this R107, looking agonisingly cool, smug in the knowledge you’re skipping the £12.50 daily ULEZ charge.
If that wasn’t enough to sway you, there’s also that incredible mileage figure, backed up by an extensive service history. The first owner also must have felt flush as they ticked more option boxes than most.
Said generous additional equipment from the factory included goodies like; paint protection, Michelin tyres for the 15-hole alloy wheels, ABS, limited-slip differential, cruise control, central locking, paint preservation, headlamp wipers and washers, rear seats and a fire extinguisher.
That’s on top of the already generous spec UK R107s shipped with, which included a heated rear screen for the hard-top, plus front electric windows and a single electrically-operated mirror. Since those big budget bits were bolted on, subsequent owners have also added an aftermarket cassette deck and fog lights.
