1986 Mercedes Benz R107 420SL with Black Leather (241)
Blue/Black (199) with Black Leather (241) / 420SL
Very well maintained 420SL with three former keepers, the latest of them doting upon this fantastic example since buying the car in 1990 – when it was just four years old. Fastidious care is recorded within this R107’s substantial history file, with servicing mostly carried out by Mercedes-Benz technicians.
A wealth of options ensure that this 37-year old SL asks little more from its driver than a modern equivalent. Comfortable, rapid and exquisitely beautiful, it’s little wonder its long-term keeper couldn’t help using it. Thankfully, that use has come with remarkable attention to on-going maintenance, with recent SLSHOP preparation work bringing that care bang up to date.
We’re proud to have put the finishing touches on what was already an exceptional example of a 420SL. Its mileage shows it’s been enjoyed and yet the invoices highlight a level of care that’s way above and beyond even what the factory recommended. If condition is the key, this one unlocks the door to motoring nirvana.
