1985 Mercedes Benz 500 SL R107
The R107 Mercedes Benz SL was produced from 1971 to 1989 which was then replaced by the R129. It was the second longest single ever produced by Mercedes, after the G –Class.
The SL was a two-seater convertible with a standard soft top and an optional hardtop available as well. You could also spec your car with folding seat for the rear bench.
The 500 SL was fitted with a 177 kW V8 engine. It produced 402 Nm of torque and top speed was 225 km/h. In 1985, the mechanical fuel injection was replaced by the Bosch KE Jetronic system with a more modern engine management computer. It controlled idle speed, feul rate and air/fuel mixture. The final 500 SL was produced in August 1989, finished in Signal Red. The car currently resides in the Mercedes Benz museum in Stuttgart.
This specific car is a 1986 500 SL finished in metallic silver with a black interior. The car has done 194 601 kms from new and has a full service history with the Agents and Mercedes Specialists. It is a stunning example of this beautiful roadster, in near perfect condition with nothing to spend!
