The Mercedes Benz 560sl, also know as the 107 body style, is one of the automotive style icons of the 1970s and 80s.

POA The 107 series were the last of the hand built Mercedes from Stuttgart, renowned for their durability and strength, they have become increasingly sought after in recent years, with low mileage examples well cared for examples fetching in excess of £40K. Launched in 1971, the Mercedes 107 series immediately became a best seller in European and US markets, with a design reminiscent in some respects of the earlier Pagoda SL. A range of models was offered during the 18 year life of the 107, with the new 5 litre being launched in 1980, which was enhanced over the next 5 years culminating in the last year of manufacture of 1989, being the 5.6 litre 560 SL for sale here. The 560 SL carried a big, 5.6-liter V-8 under its long bonnet. The single-overhead-cam, fuel-injected engine produced 227 horsepower at 5,200 rpm and 287 foot-pounds of torque at 3,500 rpm. Power was directed to the rear wheels by a four-speed automatic transmission. The 560 SL could accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in approximately 8 seconds, which was reasonably quick in its day. It had a top speed of about 140 mph. The SL employed disc brakes with ABS at all four corners, which was not yet common in the late 1980s. The
With the introduction of the W113 chassis in the early 1960s, Mercedes-Benz had essentially invented their own class of sports roadster. This 2 seat roadster was less of an all-out sports car, and more of an all-weather GT car with superior refinement and quality that meant it could be used as an everyday driver. The W113 proved a great success through three generations and in 1971 was replaced by an all-new SL, known internally as the R107. The R107 was a new chassis design that utilized shared suspension and drivetrain components from mid-sized Mercedes sedans, but wore unique sheet metal designed by the great Bruno Sacco. The R107 offered greater luxury, performance and modern refinement than its predecessor and while it still was not a hardcore sports car, it could hold its own on fast, flowing roads and was unmatched for its continent crushing ability. The first generation 350SL featured the same V8 shared with the 280SE 3.5, which was soon enlarge to the big 4.5liter version and renamed 450SL. The 107 SL proved to be a runaway success for Mercedes, thanks to the exceptionally well-engineered chassis, excellent performance from the V8 engines, and unrivaled build quality. Production of the R107 lasted from 1971 through 1989, making it the longest production run of any Mercedes-Benz passenger car to date. Only the Galandewagen off-roader has been in production longer. For the final version of the R107, engineers took the 5.6 liter V8 from flagship SEL sedan and shoehorned it into the roadster body to create the 560SL, in turn creating an instant classic and the very best of the R107 SL family. With the benefit of nearly two decades of development and technological refinements such as ABS brakes and traction control, as well as stout performance from the alloy V8, the last of the great SLs strikes the perfect balance of style and performance. The 560SL also comes from a time when legendary Mercedes-Benz dependability was at its pinnacle, yet still offers relative ease of service. Few roadsters can compare with the 560SL for its all-round capabilities and exceptional refinement. Paired with timeless styling, it is easy to see why the 560SL and its siblings have so quickly become full-fledged collectibles. This handsome 1989 560SL is an outstanding example, showing just 19,825 miles from new. It is a one family owned car from new in beautiful condition, finished in the striking combination of Smoke Silver over Burgundy leather. It is a very fine car that has exceptionally well maintained from new and kept in impeccably clean condition. The original “15-hole” style alloy wheels look beautiful against the superb paint. Likewise, the hard-wearing leather interior has been beautifully maintained and preserved in excellent condition. Burl walnut trim on the console and dash is in exquisite condition, and it still retains its original Becker Grand Prix stereo. Both tops are present and in excellent order, with the soft top in contrasting black and the hard top finished in matching Smoke Silver as per original, and the fully trimmed trunk is in excellent condition. The 5.6 liter, Bosch fuel-injected V8 engine runs strong and smooth, as it should, and has been exceptionally well maintained. The incredibly clean engine bay is properly detailed with correct original gold-cadmium fittings, clamps, hardware and decals all in excellent order. The car has a clean CarFax, and Included with the car are the original books and manuals, data card, spare keys, as well as the original window sticker and original purchase documents. These are famously robust automobiles, but only when properly maintained and cared for, and this example has clearly been cherished from the day it was first delivered. The 560SL is a rapidly appreciating classic, and fine examples such as this are in high demand; yet they still represent an excellent value considering the robust performance and legendary reliability.
