ATTRACTIVE EXAMPLE OF A MODERN MERCEDES-BENZ ICON
In 1971, Mercedes-Benz introduced the all-new Type R107 350SL as the replacement for its long-running 230/350/280SL sporting convertible models. Design was executed by Bruno Sacco, who was also responsible for the Mercedes-Benz S-Class sedans of the 1970s. Somewhat larger and more rounded than its predecessors, the new SL was based upon a steel unibody structure and featured a more luxuriously appointed interior. Faster than ever before, the new SL delivered more predictable handling and safety features extending to the most minute detail. As expected, Mercedes-Benz constantly refined and updated the R107, which remained in production for nearly 20 years in five variants. Powered by a 5.6-liter V-8 developing 227 rated horsepower and 279 pounds-feet of torque, the 560SL was the ultimate expression, available from 1985 through 1989. As always, Mercedes-Benz SL ownership, particularly in reference to the 560SL, clearly signified that one had indeed arrived, and this high-end image continues unchanged today.
This 1986 Mercedes-Benz 560SL is an original, high-quality example with only 47,542 indicated miles at the time of writing. Colors are rare and handsome, comprising 100% original Maroon paint over Beige upholstery and carpeting. Also included are a body-color hardtop and matching canvas soft top. Desirable features and amenities include a Becker Grand Prix digital AM-FM cassette stereo, power antenna, dash clock and factory-supplied First Aid kit.
