Description

Many people are now getting wise to the virtues of a Mercedes SL – in particular, the R107 versions that graced our living-room screens during the 1980’s as Bobby Ewing and Sue-Ellen’s cars in Dallas, not to mention Hart-to-Hart, Dempsey and Makepeace and many more iconic TV shows.

They became known to many as the ‘Mistress’ Car’, as they were often given as gifts to the ‘other woman’. But nowadays, they’re a sought-after classic that can be used every day – one which offers strong investment potential due to its reliability, bullet-proof build-quality and its 2-plus-2 configuration and removable hard-top giving it an unparalleled versatility compared to other classic offerings.

This stunning Mercedes 500SL R107 presented in Glacier White, was delivered by Derwent Vehicles of Leeds and was first registered on New Year’s Day 1987.

Having been under the same ownership from new, right up until this day, makes this one owner Mercedes an exceptionally rare find. It is also the most sought-after of the R107 models (a post-1986 (facelift) R107), so the car benefits from galvanised body panels, improved suspension and brakes, plus a switchable sports/economy gearbox.

The car’s condition belies its warranted 89k miles. The bodywork shows no signed of corrosion, the engine bay presents as it should, the underside is well-preserved and the navy blue interior shows only the slightest of patina, demonstrating its originality and how well this car has been cared for by its one and and only owner.

Factory options include, 15″ OE Alloy Wheels, ABS, Central Locking, Chrome Door Handles, Cruise Control, Electric Mirrors, Rear Spoiler, Removable Hard-Top and Diffuser Blade.

Its service history is extensive and has been serviced a total of 15 times during its 89k miles, relating to an average service interval of every 6,000 miles, and ALL with the same Mercedes main dealer in Leeds.

A recent service by a marque specialist has just been completed on the car to ensure full peace-of-mind and the new owner’s enjoyment of this iconic car.
