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.

This iconic Mercedes-Benz 560SL was supplied new in Carlisle, Massachusetts, but has spent much of it’s life some 1,400 miles away in sunny Florida.

Export cars to the USA market were generally very high specification, and this 560SL is no different. With an Outside Temperature Indicator, Airbag, Automatic Antenna, Illuminated Mirrors Left and Right, Automatic Climate Control and a Folding Armrest, this is one very comfortable SL for covering long distances. It might lack heated seats but this isn’t something that the Florida based previous owner probably ever noticed…

When new this car would have been in American specification, complete with the high level brake light on the boot lid, large ‘impact’ bumpers and quad round headlamps. Imported to the UK in 2013, the first MOT in this country showed just 26,991 miles and no advisories. Since arriving in Europe it has been given the full conversion to European specification, done superbly and to a very high standard. In recent years it has been used very sparingly indeed, covering less than 1,000 miles since then.

Present with the car is the original plastic wallet, with the service history book and manuals, along with a spare key. The service history details the time spent in both Massachusetts and Florida, with the most recent service stamp being inked by SLSHOP prior to arrival in the showroom.

This is one fantastic looking car, a chance to acquire a the largest displacement R107 SL in what is arguably the most desirable colour.

An icon in it’s own right, a car that looks just at home on Palm Beach or Woolacombe Bay.

Condition:
