1988 Mercedes-Benz 560SL (R107)

42,496 miles

The Mercedes-Benz 560SL was the largest displacement R107, with a 5.6 litre V8 engine produced to combat the restrictive emissions regulations primarily in California. It might seem counter productive to us today, but back in the late 1980s it was only by increasing displacement to 5.6 litres that the USA specification cars could be given comparable performance to the European 500SL and still comply with the necessary emissions rules. As is often the case with motorcars, it is this range-topping ‘560SL’ badge that buyers so desire, particularly as the largest displacement SL was never offered in Europe – it was only available in the USA, Japan and Australia.

On European roads the 560SL is perfect for continental touring, a very capable beast that is both refined and raw in equal measure.

This particular car was imported from California to the UK and has spent it’s European days in Spain, being specifically chosen for the low mileage and rare colour combination. Smoke Silver Metallic is a beautiful shade that was only offered for the last few years of production, perfectly combined with the Beige Leather interior for a very luxurious looking roadster.

It’s not just the colour combination that screams luxury with this car… inside the specification is comprehensive. USA cars were always fitted with virtually every available option, and this car is no exception. With the Outside Temp Gauge, Rear Spoiler Delete, Airbag, Becker Mexico Radio, Paintwork Preservation, Automatic Antenna, Folding Arm Rest, Illuminated Vanity Mirrors and of course, the brown fabric soft top.

Low mileage, high displacement, ultimate R107 luxury. There’s a lot to like about this rare car.
