About This Car
1977 Mercedes-Benz R107 350SL
Brilliant Red (525U) with Black Leather and Black Fabric Soft Top (9001)
This beautifully presented early car shows just 43,000 miles. With black leather and soft top, it’s a fantastic chance to acquire an iconic looking early V8 SL.
The colour is an early R107 shade of Brilliant Red, available from 1975 to 1979 only.
It is one of 13 different shades of red offered from 1971 to 1989. The matching wheel trims complete the picture, synonymous with early vehicles and desired by enthusiasts and collectors alike.
Not only is the colour very rare, it’s also incredibly difficult to photograph accurately! Being a metallic colour it has an almost orange hue – to sit this car next to a later Signal Red car one would see a distinct difference in the shade, however it also has the ability to deceive depending on the light. Sometimes it looks more red, other times it looks more orange. It’s a beautiful colour, complimented by the black interior and one that really needs to be seen up close and in person.

Where will your Mercedes-Benz take you?
Although the R107 is renowned for build quality, there is one chink in the armour - the bulkhead. Many cars that present well from the outside are hiding internal rust. Water from outside the car should drain out through specially designed channels, but over time, these become blocked forcing water inside the car. Once water has breached the blower motor cover in front of the windscreen, it slowly wreaks havoc from inside out. This delicate area did not have rust protection from the factory, and as the metal deteriorates it the water ingress can lead to faulty electrics, damp carpets and musty smells inside the cabin.
All our cars come with a 36 month bulkhead warranty.
