1989 Mercedes-Benz R107 500SL with Beige Leather (275)

Diamond Blue (355) with Beige Leather (275) / 500SL


Principal Facts:

A low mileage 5.0 litre late model R107 in a beautiful specification with some interesting history… A very desirable car indeed.

Air Conditioning, Orthopaedic Front Seat Backrest, Cruise Control

Condition Synopsis:

Built in late 1988 and registered in 1989, this immaculate 500SL was ordered in the striking combination of Diamond Blue Metallic with Beige Leather. Although we have seen many cars in Diamond Blue, it’s rare to find one with the 5.0 litre V8 engine and beige interior. What we have here is a low mileage, late V8 car in a wonderful colour-putting it amongst the most desirable examples of the R107. The 500SL came with cruise control as standard (a cost option on the 300SL), but this car has both air conditioning and the orthopaedic front seat backrest-another option that we rarely see on showroom cars, even with the calibre of vehicles that come through SLSHOP. Outside the paintwork presents superbly, and inside the theme is the same-this is a very fine car indeed. With that V8 burble, the comfortable seating and the cruise control set to a steady 70mph,this would be a fantastic car to point to the horizon.

History File:

The history file is comprehensive, and it is clear from the documentation that this car has been maintained regardless of cost. No less than 28 service stamps span the 25,000 mile window in the service book, all at the same Mercedes-Benz main dealer. It is worth noting that the service book is a duplicate, with a signed note in the front pertaining to the superb maintenance that the car has always enjoyed.   It’s hard to understate the history file of this car, especially when we have 28 stamps from Greenoaks Mercedes-Benz covering the mileage between 24,793 and 51,115. It’s not often that we would use the term ‘over serviced’ but this car was clearly owned by a very fastidious steward and the service book demonstrates that.

I have followed SLSHOP with interest for some years now and recently took the plunge and purchased my dream car – they did not disappoint!
The whole experience from start to finish was superb. Their communication was excellent and they kept me
informed every step of the way. Thank you and I look forward to my next purchase!

I have just purchased a 280SL from SLSHOP. I have already purchased several parts from SLSHOP and have found all members of staff most helpful and it is more like dealing with a club than a commercial enterprise I would highly recommend using SLSHOP for cars, parts and most importantly impartial advice.

They put up with my indecision, inexperience and last minute demands and my car is the best thing I’ve ever bought. The most impressive thing about them is the after care though. Nothing is ever too much trouble and they’ve given me the best advice to make sure I get the most out of my car. Can you tell I’m obsessed with them all?
