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.
