Overview of this Mercedes-Benz

1989 Mercedes-Benz 300SL (R107) 

Impala Brown Metallic (441) with Beige Leather (275) and
Impala Brown Metallic Hard Top (441) with Light Brown Fabric Soft Top (8023)

67,000 miles

Impala Brown was the 12th different brown offered throughout the R107 timeline, available only for the last 3 years of production. This beautiful metallic colour was ahead of it’s time, a shade that wouldn’t look out of place in the glossy brochures of a modern Mercedes-Benz dealership.

Late model R107 SLs are highly desirable, with cars built from 1986 to 1989 commanding the biggest price premium for a number of reasons… These cars offered revised handling, better braking, larger wheels and a slightly revised interior over the earlier R107s. Equipment levels also increased, along with a smart new range of colours. Shades such as Diamond Blue, Almandine Red and Impala Brown were luxurious new metallic paints that have become synonymous with these late cars.

Metallic Paint was a cost option in 1989, and it isn’t the only cost option that this car boasts. Leather Seats (with Rear Seats), Outdoor Temperature Gauge, Cruise Control, Paint Preservation, Headlamp Wash Wipe and of course Seat Heaters for both Front Seats would have added an extra £3,200 onto the £32,750 list price. That equates to just under £95,000 in today’s money.

Leather with the Rear Seat Option is a highly desirable factory original component for an R107 SL. Although the rear seats are small, it does make the SL more usable for transporting small children (or grand children) to your local classic car show – and it helps residual values. The outside temperature gauge is also a neat addition, something we take for granted in modern cars that was a cost option back in 1989! This isn’t a digital display, it’s a beautifully designed dial that’s only active when the ignition is engage. A lovely touch and something 107 SL connoisseurs like to see. Headlamp Wash Wipe and Cruise Control were both standard with the 500SL, meaning this 300SL enjoys all luxurious benefits of the range-topping V8 whilst utilising the more spirited six-cylinder 3.0 litre engine.

This beautiful Impala Brown 300SL is a genuine one owner from new car, with a complete Mercedes-Benz service history.

A print out from Mercedes-Benz documents almost £13,500 spent with three different official dealerships with the earliest entry dated 1995.

Further bolstering the provenance of this car is the presence of the original order form, along with an undated invoice pertaining to the fitment of a telephone with the first advance rental… This type written sheet is from Rawsons TMS Mercedes-Benz, the supplying dealer.

This would lead one to conclude that this £1,178 (or more than £3,000 in today’s money) for the fitment of a portable phone would date back to 1989 when the car was new… The phone is still with the car, but sadly it doesn’t work!

If you don’t fall in love with this car for the colour, options and mileage, then the service history and provenance really ought to sway the vote… A fantastic opportunity to acquire a car that’s quite simply ‘all there’.
