1985 Mercedes-Benz R107 500SL with Black Leather (241)

Signal Red with Black Leather (241) / 500SL


Principal Facts:

Can there be a more iconic colour combination than Signal Red with Black Leather Interior?

Signal Red is the shade that many go to immediately when thinking of an R107. Blame Bobby Ewing, blame the 1980s… but you have to agree it’s a fantastic hue for the shape of the car. Whilst we see many of the later style R107’s in this colour (post 1986 facelift cars), it’s rare to find early cars as good as this one. Being a 1985 car, this 500SL was built just before the major shift to the new style for 1986.

These early cars are really starting to gain in momentum, particularly if they are equipped with the Mexican Hat style alloy wheels. This car ticks all the boxes, and is ready to be used and enjoyed.

Coming from long term ownership, this car has been the property of a customer who has become a friend over recent years. Now looking to downsize his collection, this 500SL is looking for a new owner.

I have followed SLSHOP with interest for some years now and recently took the plunge and purchased my dream car – they did not disappoint!
The whole experience from start to finish was superb. Their communication was excellent and they kept me
informed every step of the way. Thank you and I look forward to my next purchase!

I have just purchased a 280SL from SLSHOP. I have already purchased several parts from SLSHOP and have found all members of staff most helpful and it is more like dealing with a club than a commercial enterprise I would highly recommend using SLSHOP for cars, parts and most importantly impartial advice.

They put up with my indecision, inexperience and last minute demands and my car is the best thing I’ve ever bought. The most impressive thing about them is the after care though. Nothing is ever too much trouble and they’ve given me the best advice to make sure I get the most out of my car. Can you tell I’m obsessed with them all?
