1983 Mercedes-Benz R107 380SL with Cream Leather (255)

Petrol Blue with Cream Leather (255) / 380SL


Principal Facts:

2 Keys, Former SLSHOP Car with Air Conditioning fitted and Cruise Control, ULEZ Compliant

Regular browsers of our Showroom will know that it is not a regular occurrence for us to host a 380SL, let alone an example in right-hand drive and finished in Petrol Blue (877). The 380SL was produced from 1980 to 1985, with 53,200 units leaving the factor of which 88% were left-hand drive with American specification energy-absorbing bumpers and a reduction in power. Despite the M116 V8 lump under the bonnet, the American specification 380SLs would only yield circa 150bhp, almost 70 shy of the European examples. Only 1258 units would be sold in the United Kingdom, making this a very special example indeed.

We are delighted to once again present this 380SL for sale in the inimitable Petrol Blue (Blue-Green) finish which is truly stupendous when basking in the sun. The iridescent finish offers you a whole host of colours as the light bounces off of the Germanic angles, causing envious  classic car peers who opted for dark greens… This car has been known to SLSHOP for many years, with regular services carried out our existing and current premises.

Interestingly, this vehicle was not registered until 1988, making it quite unique.

The paint finish is in fantastic order with very little signs of age – testament to the quality and number of layers of paint used by Mercedes-Benz. The body colour matched steel hubs are in equally good condition, with no chips or flaking to the steel hubs. Inside, you are welcomed sumptuous leather in a cream colourway that blends perfectly with the exterior colour way. Former keepers have retro-fitted air conditioning which is in good working order. This example also features air conditioning, cruise control, electric windows, rear leather seats and electrically adjustable passenger mirror.

This 380SL was registered on an F plate (1988) as it was laid up for a number of years. The enormous folder of paperwork accompanying the vehicle corroborates this and can be viewed over a coffee in our showroom. For a video walk around, please contact us today.

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?
