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.

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.
Mercedes-Benz has always had a tremendously diverse portfolio. From passenger cars to heavy trucks and buses, Mercedes has built just about every type of four-wheeled vehicle conceivable. Yet with only a couple of notable exceptions, it has never really been a maker of sports cars in the purest sense of the term. So when faced with a decision to replace the 300SL (very much a real sports car) and its junior 190SL sibling with a new sports car in the early 1960s, Mercedes chose to forge its own path. The exotic, tubular-chassis 300SL was very expensive to produce, and more standardization was needed to keep costs in check. The 190SL was seen as more of a fashion statement than a true sports car, and it too was costly to build. A replacement for both came in the form of the R113 230SL, which combined the six-cylinder status of the 300SL with the compact, comfortable sporty-tourer nature of the 190SL. This all-new car was less of an all-out sports car, and more of an all-weather GT car with superior refinement and quality in comparison to its rivals. And since it shared components with regular production Mercedes sedans, it was much more efficient to produce. The R113 proved a great success through three generations and in 1971 was replaced by an all-new SL, known internally as the R107. The R107 carried on the spirit of the R113, but with an all-new chassis design that utilized shared suspension and drivetrain components from mid-sized Mercedes sedans but clothed in unique sheet metal designed by 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 be thrown around a fast, flowing road with aplomb yet deliver its occupants to their destination unruffled. 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. Such was its commercial success; it served as the longest-running production passenger car in Mercedes-Benz history and went on to become an iconic period status symbol. 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 refinements such as ABS brakes, limited slip differential, leather upholstery and driver’s airbag, along with stout performance from the alloy V8, these great SLs provide a fine balance of style and performance. Few roadsters can compare with the 560SL for its year-round capability, exceptional refinement and legendary build quality. Paired with timeless styling and brisk performance, it is easy to see why this generation of SL has become so collectible. This exquisite 1986 560SL has covered just 13,491 miles from new and remains in exceptional, beautifully maintained condition from top to bottom. Presented in its original and very attractive color scheme of silver over blue leather with a blue soft top, this is fabulous example of Mercedes’ legendary roadster. As one would expect from such a low-mileage SL, the body is arrow-straight with factory-precise panel alignment and beautiful quality original paintwork. Exterior chrome and plastic trim is in excellent condition and it rides on a set of original alloy wheels polished to a mirror shine. The luxurious cabin is trimmed in original blue leather, again in superb, totally original condition and in keeping with the remarkably low miles. All power functions work as they should and the car feels every bit as fresh as the odometer shows. The sale includes the matching original hard top, hard top stand, window sticker, tool kit and books. This superlative 560SL has the look and feel of a new car and is certainly one of the finest of its kind available today.
Produced between 1986 and 1989, the Mercedes Benz 560SL was sold exclusively to the US, Japanese and Australian markets. This Australian delivered 560SL with the all alloy 5.6 litre V8, delivers a smooth yet powerful performance and classic Mercedes Benz style. In very good condition, this 560 comes with both the detachable factory hard top and soft top.
