1987 Mercedes-Benz 560SL (R107) #1689 Petrol Blue with Palamino Leather

Overview of this Mercedes-Benz

1987 Mercedes-Benz 560SL (R107)

Blue Green Metallic (877) (often known as Petrol Blue Metallic) with Palamino Leather (274) and Dark Blue Fabric Soft Top (5010)

93,252 miles

The 5.6 litre V8 engine was the largest engine offered during R107 production, developed primarily for the American market. The increased displacement allowed Mercedes-Benz to maintain the performance benchmarks set by the 500SL; even when complying with the stringent emissions regulations set by the state of California. It was never offered for sale in European markets.

Always a popular model for import, this 560SL has been with SLSHOP for some time. Many of our staff are very fond of this car, and it has enjoyed a number of long-distance trips as an occasional member of our press fleet.

Imported from California in 2015, this car came from the land of sunshine. The original keeper of this car lived not far from Redondo Beach, a stones throw from Trump National Golf Club Los Angeles. Can it get more ‘560SL’ than that?

It was this very 560SL that undertook the impressive journey to Norway, documented in Mercedes enthusiast magazine.

Blue Green Metallic (often known as Petrol Blue) is a rare R107 colour, perfectly complimented by the Palamino leather interior. This car was retrimmed by SLSHOP before it went into active service, true to the factory correct finish and to the highest standard. Inside the car still smells new… Palamino is an option synonymous with the high specification export cars, a real treat for the R107 enthusiast.

In October 2019 this car underwent full preparation for sale, including a full service. At this point the gearbox was serviced and it was fitted with a new air conditioning belt as well as an alternator belt.

During it’s time with SLSHOP this car has proven to be faultlessly reliable, functioning equally well whether it’s on tracking duty during filming videos or posing for photo shoots.

Accompanying this car is an array of paperwork from it’s time in the USA, as well as the original owners manual, maintenance booklet and factory correct radio and soft top guides.

A delightfully attractive car with a very capable 5.6 litre V8 engine.

Now ready for a new owner to add their own miles and memories.
