Overview of this Mercedes-Benz

1988 Mercedes-Benz 420SL (R107)

Willow Green Metallic (261) with Beige Leather (275) and
Willow Green Metallic Hard Top (261) and Dark Brown Fabric Soft Top (8023)

17,841 miles

The Mercedes-Benz 420SL arrived in 1986, introduced for the last three years of R107 SL production. This 4.2 litre naturally aspirated V8 engine replaced the 3.8 litre 380SL, offered alongside the larger 5.0 litre V8 and six-cylinder 3.0 300SL until 1989. Although tens of thousands of 300SL and 500SL examples were produced, 420SL production numbered just 2,148, making it the most elusive of all R107 SL models.

Over on our Journal we have put together a comprehensive rundown on the 420SL engine, including further details on why this engine is such a great choice for the prospective R107 buyer. You can read that here.

The car shown above is a superb example of the 420SL, finished in Willow Green Metallic with Beige Leather. It was owned by one family from 1988 until 2019, when it was sold at auction to the current keeper. The mileage at the time was just 16,923, and it has covered very few miles since then.

Despite the low mileage, the winning bidder at the auction promptly delivered the car to SLSHOP for a full program of recommissioning, lavishing some £14,000 on the car to turn it into the jewel of an SL that it is today.

Present with the car is a comprehensive history file, along with the service book and many invoices pertaining to completed works throughout the life of the car.

Having recently driven back to the SLSHOP from Scotland, this is a superb specimen of a late car, with that silky smooth 4.2 litre engine and in a desirable colour combination. The owner would like to mention that he once covered 664 miles in one day behind the wheel of this car, and it performed faultlessly.

The sort of car that can be used and enjoyed as well as cherished and displayed.
