Overview of this Mercedes-Benz

1989 Mercedes-Benz R107 420 SL

Signal Red (568) with Mushroom Leather (275) and Black Fabric Soft Top (9001)

Just 1,500 miles

The term ‘time warp car’ is not one that we here at The SLSHOP would use lightly, but this car certainly qualifies to wear that title.

Showing just 1,400 miles from new under the stewardship of one careful owner, this high specification 420SL is presented in ‘out of the box’ condition in every area.

This late-model 420SL was registered on 5th February 1990 on a ‘G’ plate, making it one of the very last cars before the baton was handed to the R129. Being a 420SL it features Cruise Control and Rear Seats, which would have added £298.47 and £655.73 to the total list price price of 37,950.00, giving a grand total of £38,904.20

It was delivered new to a Mr S in Hornchurch where it was supplied from the main dealer of Lancaster Europa Mercedes-Benz. The service book has three main dealer stamps, during the period of ownership locally the car was maintained by a local garage in Cornwall where fluids and regular exercise was maintained.

As far as we can tell, the soft top has only been dismounted for PDI purposes. All of the correct documents, wallets and brochures are present with the car, and the spare wheel, tool kit and and first aid kit remain in the same condition as the day this car left the factory. The factory seam sealer and underseal are all present as it left the factory in all the right places which is remarkable after 29 years, the engine decals and factory coloured markings are all present including the suspension and drive train which was displayed on the dealers PDi service.

Signal Red with Cream interior and rear seats is a highly desirable specification for all manner of SL enthusiasts.

Many regard it as the ultimate iconic edition of the R107 SL making this a highly prized asset for collectors and investors alike.

The real piece de resistance of this car is the presence of all four original tyres, which could be used for show purposes should the new owner decide to present the vehicle at concours events.

We cannot stress enough that cars of this calibre simply do not come on to the open market for sale – this really is the classic collectors dream.
