4000 miles since rebuild.

As featured by press around the world, the 300 SL SportLine was and remains a one-of-a-kind R107 SL reimagined as performance-focused machine. Read the full specification on this car here.

SLSHOP are delighted to be able to once again offer this unique and inimitable 300 SL SportLine, engineered and developed by our team over more than two years.

After development and testing, the vehicle was then secured by a private collector who owned a ‘full house’ of Signal Red R107s… An early 500, a late 300 and the SportLine. It is now offered for sale direct from this collection.

This is a completely restored, upgraded and modified 300SL complete with 5-speed manual gearbox. It is quite simply thrilling to drive.

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?
