3,100 miles since rebuild

This car was built by SLSHOP 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. For further details and to discuss a test drive, please contact Bruce.
