We are very pleased to offer this absolutely stunning 300SL for sale, supplied by us back in April 2014 The Mercedes-Benz SL (R107) were produced from 1971 through 1989 and were described by many as one of the best looking cars Mercedes-Benz produced to date, being the second longest single series ever produced by the automaker, after the G-Class. They were sold under the SL (R107) and SLC (C107) model names as the 280 SL, 280 SLC, 300 SL, etc. up to the 560 SL. The R107 replaced the W113 SL-Class in 1972 and was replaced by the R129 SL-Class in 1989. Finished in the most stunning Smoke Silver with Cream leather interior and arm rest. Presented absolutely flawlessly and having been kept in a private collection for a number of years prior to us supplying the car she has a very low mileage of 36,000 miles (30,000miles in 2014) There is no corrosion on the car anywhere, being the later facelifted galvanised version it is therefore more collectable as well.

The Mercedes-Benz R129 SL roadsters were produced from 1989 through to 2002. Designed in 1984, they were based on the shortened floor-pan of the Mercedes-Benz W124 and featured many innovative details for the time, for instance electronically controlled damping (optional) and a hidden, automatically extending roll-over bar. The R107's rather dated rear diagonal swing axle gave way to a modern multi-link axle. The number of standard features was high with electric action for the windows, mirrors, seats and convertible top. The R129 received heightened media attention in Great Britain in 1991 when Diana, Princess of Wales sold her Jaguar XJS to lease a metallic-red 500 SL and became the first member of the Royal Family to use a foreign car. This was not without controversy as it sparked a media storm and questioned whether a member of a British royalty should drive foreign cars. Media pressure eventually forced her to return the car to Mercedes-Benz in 1992 and it now resides in their museum. This two owner 1992 300 SL - 24 has only covered 23,800 miles from new which is confirmed with a full Mercedes-Benz service history. The car was supplied with a number of optional extras includi

Mercedes-Benz 300SL Gullwing (1955) Chassis No. 198.0404500061 Engine No. 198. 9804500060 Correct Matching Numbers: UK Registration: Early Production Series A true classic motorcar that has had star quality from day one. There has never been a time when a Mercedes-Benz Gullwing has failed to turn heads and been admired as probably the “finest classic car of all time”! Without doubt, those ‘”Gullwing Doors” are totally responsible for the cars total admiration. When the world first saw Hermann Lang climbing out of his car after winning Le Mans in 1952, they could not have created a greater sensation than anything else in motoring history. In fact, those doors were merely an expedient because the 300SL’s true spaceframe chassis and high sills necessitated hinging the doors on the roof. Such was the stir they caused, however, that the organisers of the Mille Miglia (where 300SLs took second and fourth) tried to ban them! The “SL” moniker (translated to English as Sport Light) reflected the pioneering use of a welded, tubular-steel, ultra-light frame construction that weighed only 182 pounds. The car also featured fully independent suspension in addition to its fuel-injected, 3.0-litre OHC straight-six engine with dry-sump lubrication. The engine was inclined to the side in order to reduce the height of the front end. The power was rated at 215 brake horsepower at 5,800 rpm (DIN) and delivered through a four-speed manual gearbox. A 161-mph top speed and 0–60 acceleration of approximately eight seconds, depending on the rear-end ratio selected from five options, made the 300 SL the fastest production automobile of its time. The 300 SL in its day was also raced and piloted by some of the world leading racing drivers and without doubt the number one driver associated with the car was of course, Sir Stirling Moss, who holds the “forever” course record for his famous Mille Miglia finish in 1955. It all added to the romance of a car that seemed destined to become a legend the moment production began of the “Gullwing”. The car has all the right ingredients to make these models the most incredible classic cars of all time! Our 300SL offered for sale is recorded in the Gullwing Group Registry as having been originally delivered to the USA on the 8th November 1954 to Wisconsin and supplied to a Mr Kiekhἃfer. Originally commissioned to be built in White, the car is now finished in the most desirable and highly sought-after colour combination of the 300SL in Silver Grey Metallic with Red Hide and the added benefit of fitted luggage. The motorcar has just completed a fresh comprehensive safety-check and MOT carried out by one of the UK leading 300SL specialists. No serious classic car collection is ever complete without the most legendary modern sports car of all times; a Mercedes Benz 300SL Gullwing! Now available to be personally inspected at our central London showrooms.

1957 Mercedes-Benz 300SL Roadster s/n 198.042.7500568 Fire Engine Red with Tan Leather Interior The 300SL was one of the most exotic cars available when it was new. Directly descended from racing cars, and chock full of innovative features, they were fast, beautiful, and expensive. Arguably the first 'supercar' ever (others claim that honor should be bestowed upon the Lamborghini Miura), the 300SL has been described as the McLaren F1 of its day. Thanks to Mercedes' development work during World War II in aircraft engines, the300SL became the first production car to feature fuel injection (directly injected into the cylinders no less), and the light but strong spaceframe necessitated the now legendary and often copied upwards opening doors on the closed variant of the car. The result was a stunningly beautiful but also functional car that was, depending on gearing, the fastest production car in the world. Surrounded by separate frame carbureted contemporaries, the SL was truly a glimpse of the future and remains today a very special car indeed. Its appeal is timeless and consequently, 300SLs have remained 'blue-chip' collector cars that are always in demand and perhaps even cultural
