1985 Mercedes-Benz 500SL (R107)
Diamond Blue Metallic (355) with Royal Blue Leather (272) and Black Fabric Soft Top (9001)
A fantastically rare find, a very high specification ‘late’ R107 showing all the hallmarks of being a Mercedes-Benz Press Car.
This 1985 500SL features Cruise Control, Becker Premium Audio System, ABS, Heated Leather Front Seats, Additional Rear Seats (Leather) and rear spoiler.. in short this is a ‘tick all the boxes’ special order car.
Interestingly this is a 1985 car when the final incarnation of the R107 arrived in 1986. The specification of this car is huge.
Amongst the standard options this particular car also has Becker Premium Audio System, Heated Leather Front Seats, Rear Seats (also Leather), Outside Temp Gauge, Airbag, Air Conditioning.. in short this is a ‘tick all the boxes’ special order car.
The list price of a 500SL back then was £41,700 – this car had a total price with options of £46,838, or £123,554 in today’s money.
Essentially, this is one of the most expensive 500SLs we have come across.
We do not know of many cars that have come to us showing NOTE FOR SPECIAL EQUIPMENT (PRESS VEHICLES) within the datacard, making this a rather special SL.
