Overview of this Mercedes-Benz

Mercedes-Benz 300SL (R107)

Almandine Red (512) with Cream MB Tex Interior (175)

Black Soft Top (9001)

SLSHOP is delighted to present this exceptional R107 300SL finished in the rare exterior colourway of Almandine Red Metallic (512) – a colour that is rarely seen on roads around the world, simply because this colourway was only offered from 1988 to 1989. In its current low mileage form and in an unusual and alluring finish, you are presented with a R107 SL with charisma and charm unlikely to be matched within the classic Mercedes-Benz community. An exciting prospect for the discerning enthusiast or individual looking to own a dependable and comfortable classic convertible.

Present with the vehicle’s documentation is the original Pre-Delivery Inspection report (PDI) – a document often lost with vehicles of the classic ilk. The vehicle was ordered new with Rear Seats (565) and Paintwork preservation – a strong move to secure that rare and lovely paint finish. Mercedes-Benz provided 300SL customers with an extensive array of standard features common to modern vehicles, including electric windows, illuminated vanity mirrors, ABS, electronic passenger mirrors and more.

Registered in the UK in Spring 1989, this 300SL was used sparingly throughout the first seven years of ownership, accumulating just under 9,000 miles. It was in 1996 that the car was purchased by a Mr Ambrose of London who has been the custodian of the car up until January 2022. Over this period, Mr Ambrose made use of the vehicle while sticking to a religious schedule of maintenance and servicing.

Accompanying the vehicle is three folders documenting all works carried out on the 300SL since Mr Ambrose acquired the vehicle in 1996. Included within this is a invoice for extensive works carried out in January 2022 totalling over £12,000, including front sub-frame mounts and anti-roll bar bushes, discs and pads, the refurbishment of 5 Alloy wheels, a complete respray of the exterior with Galanite Grey Sills (DB129) and more. We advise interested parties to join us for a coffee and pleasant hour reviewing the comprehensive documentation.

This is a 300SL that wants for nothing; with all the expense covered by Mr Ambrose. A car to be enjoyed at a relaxed pace along the French or Brighton Rivieras.
