About This Car
1986 Mercedes-Benz 500SL (R107) LHD
51,000 Miles (81,000km on the odometer)
European LHD Car (Delivered in Germany 1986, in Spain since 1987)
Astral Silver (735) with Anthracite Black Leather (271) and Black Fabric Soft Top (9001)
This huge specification Left Hand Drive 500SL would make the ultimate continent crosser.
Fitted with an enviable options list, the specification of this car includes Heated Front Seats, Rear Seats, Air Bag, Full Becker Mexico Cassette Stereo, Illuminated Mirrors Left and Right, Folding Arm Rest, and of course Air Conditioning. All of these were expensive options on an already expensive car, giving this 1986 R107 SL a price tag significantly north of £118,000 in today’s money.
These options make the car ideally suited to both hot and cold climates. It is rare to find an R107 SL with heated seats, let alone to find one with both heated seats and air conditioning… Clearly the first owner of this car was not financially strained – we don’t often find them with so many options ticked.
Coming from long term ownership, this car has been adored for many years by the official MB Owners Club of Spain Club Secretary. It was supplied new in Germany and imported to Spain in 1987 when it was just one year old. Being a warm climate car has many advantages, although often cars from hotter countries show wear and tear on the interior, but that is not so with this example. Inside and outside the car presents superbly, testament to many years of careful ownership.

Where will your Mercedes-Benz take you?
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.
