About This Car

1988 Mercedes-Benz 300SL (R107)

Arctic White (147) with Beige Leather (275) and
Arctic White (147) hardtop with Black Fabric Soft Top (740)

With the smart white paintwork perfectly complimented by the beige leather interior, this luxurious 300SL looks a million dollars. Built in May of 1988, this car was first registered in Aberdeen and has spent the majority of it’s life in Scotland.

Fitted with a selection of choice (and expensive) options, the specification list includes Heated Seats, Air Conditioning, Air Bag, Leather, Rear Seating, Paintwork Preservation and Cruise Control.

Between 1988 and 2011 this 300SL covered some 53,000 miles, accruing 17 service stamps in the Mercedes-Benz maintenance book before arriving at SLSHOP in March of that year. It was sold to a client of ours, who has enjoyed this car sparingly and is now looking for a new home for this remarkable SL.

The white paintwork and beige interior, along with the high specification and comprehensive maintenance history make this SL an excellent choice. Although we have sold two white R107 SLs in 2021, this is the only car we can recall that has the beige leather option… White is usually paired with a blue interior and a blue roof.

We believe this colour combination is a fantastic choice for an R107 SL, and the fact that this car is an ex-SLSHOP showroom example that’s now being sold by us a second time speaks volumes for the quality of this car.

Not to be missed.

Where will your Mercedes-Benz take you?

Bulkhead Corrosion

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.

SLSHOP Unique 2 & 3 year warranty
