Mercedes 500SL 1988 (1988)




Fine and Classic is delighted to offer for sale this superb Mercedes SL500. Replacing the Mercedes SL W113 Pagoda, the SL R107 took the chassis components of the mid-sized Mercedes Benz W114 model and mated them to the larger engines from the S-Class (W116), creating a two seat convertible/roadster, with standard soft top and hard top and optional folding seats for the rear bench.

Engines range from 2.8 litre to V8 variants of 3.5, 4.2, 4.5, through to the range topping 5.0 litre engine.

This particular car has undergone a significant restoration using genuine Mercedes parts throughout and is fully detailed to concourse standard. The flawless coachwork has been reproduced to the specified production high gloss finish in Brilliant White. The dark blue soft top is new and a genuine Mercedes item, the hard top has been finished to match the coachwork.

The engine bay and underside are fully detailed to concourse standard. The leather interior is unmarked and original, which gives an insight into the condition of the vehicle before its renaissance. This truly is a magnificent SL500.

Vehicle History: With a very reassuring provenance, a very comprehensive history file accompanies the vehicle, including fully stamped up service booklet, all previous MoT certificates and records of the vehicle restoration, including many pictures and receipts for the work carried out.
