About This Car
1989 Mercedes-Benz 420SL (R107)
Black (040) with Anthracite Leather (271) and Black Fabric Soft Top (9001)
Mercedes-Benz produced the 420SL between 1985 and 1989, alongside the six cylinder 300SL and V8 engined 500SL. Although considered by many to be the sweetest of all SL engines, production of the 420SL was dwarfed by the other models.
Just over 2,000 420SLs left the factory, compared to some 13,000 six cylinders cars. With 215bhp on tap the 420SL is no slouch, more than capable of keeping up with modern traffic and well suited to long distance touring.
This is a very rare ‘Triple Black’ car with black coachwork, black leather and black soft top. Triple Black is an incredibly smart colour combination for an R107 SL, one we don’t see as often as we would like. Leather and rear seating would have been expensive optional extras back in 1989, making this a very carefully considered purchase for the first owner.
This fine car shows just 31,000 miles for it’s 33 years, testament to decades of careful stewardship.
Overall a beautiful, collectable, investable 420SL ready for a new owner to enjoy.

Where will your Mercedes-Benz take you?
Although the R107 is renowned for build quality, there is one chink in the armour - the bulkhead. Many cars that present well from the outside are hiding internal rust. Water from outside the car should drain out through specially designed channels, but over time, these become blocked forcing water inside the car. Once water has breached the blower motor cover in front of the windscreen, it slowly wreaks havoc from inside out. This delicate area did not have rust protection from the factory, and as the metal deteriorates it the water ingress can lead to faulty electrics, damp carpets and musty smells inside the cabin.
All our cars come with a 36 month bulkhead warranty.
