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.
Offered with just three owners from new, this highly original survivor is attractive throughout, indicative of proper maintenance and care over the years. Both the Signal Red paint finish and Tan leather interior remain original. In addition to the factory removable hardtop, this 560SL is well equipped for enjoyable touring with air conditioning, power windows, and a complete high-end Kenwood audio system. Books/manuals, a spare wheel/tire, tool kit, and First Aid kit are also included. A Chicago-area vehicle, this wonderful 1986 Mercedes-Benz 560SL has been sparingly enjoyed during summer months and we understand that it has always been properly garaged when not in use. Freshly serviced and detailed, this 80’s Mercedes icon is ready to enjoy. Call us today to obtain full details and arrange a viewing and test drive.
