1989 Mercedes Benz R107 500SL with Black Leather (241)

Black (040) with Black Leather (241) / 500SL


Principal Facts:

A very late car (May 1989) finished in rare Triple Black, an investment grade R107 SL

Condition Synopsis:

The Mercedes-Benz R107 SL replaced the W113 Pagoda in 1971, remaining in production almost unchanged a full 18 years, with the final R107 rolling off the production line in 1989. For many SL enthusiasts, the most desirable cars date from the last three years of production. For the 1986 model year, Mercedes-Benz introduced a range of new engines. The 300SL replaced the 280SL, the 420SL replaced the 380SL and only the range topping 500SL remained unchanged in Europe - export markets that were throttled by emissions regulations received the 560SL. Along with the new engines, the 1986 cars received a revised interior, a range of new colours, wider wheels and improved handling and road holding - as well as the well known galvanised construction. This striking ‘Triple Black’ car would have been quite the thing to behold back in 1989, just as it is today. With a list price of £41,700 and options taking this number up to closer to £45,0000, adjusted for inflation this car equates to more than £140,000 in today’s money. Here at SL shop we pride ourselves on finding the rarest R107 examples available, and to date we are only aware of a handful of cars finished in the Triple Black colour scheme - only two of which have been the range topping 500SL.

History File:

This car is accompanied by an extensive history file, which details time spent in France between 1998 and 2011. During that time the car was served and maintained before returning to the United Kingdom just over a decade later. Since then it has seen very little use but has continued to be maintained to the highest standards. The MOT mileage history demonstrates a lifetime of consistent but careful use, making this a very rare opportunity indeed. With its rare and respectable colour combination, low mileage and enviable options list, this Triple Black car is really something special. A slice of luxury from the past that has more than stood the test of time. Simply stunning.

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?
