The Mercedes-Benz R107 SL at 50

Classic & Sports Car – Mercedes’ R107 SL at 50: inside the July 2021 issue of C&SC

As Mercedes’ 107-series SL hits its half century, its star is still rising, growing in popularity and oozing period charm.

This month, Martin Buckley takes a trio of SLs to reacquaint himself with the model. ‘More than just transport, 50 years on the essential appeal of the R107 remains that of a compact, “personal” and handy possession that manages to combine refinement and creature comforts without feeling in any way decadent, fragile or temperamental,’ he says. Join us for a ride from p86.


The ultimate Multipla?

It all started with the dream of a road trip – and ended as a full-on restoration. But this Fiat 600 Multipla’s talented owner doesn’t do things by halves…

Our Greg MacLeman gets the inside story of this distinctive classic’s thoughtful, passionate rebirth.


GT megatest

From p102 of the July 2021 issue of C&SC we dive into the world of family-friendly supercars with the Lamborghini Espada, Ferrari 400GT, Maserati Indy and Iso Lele.

Martin Buckley returns to fall back in love again with these four classics that now sit at the (relatively) more affordable end of the GT spectrum.


Where it all began

We take a fascinating look inside the garage of one Rolls-Royce specialist to find… 11 Austin Sevens.

C&SC’s Mick Walsh meets Paul Wood and his impressive collection, and discovers why this eclectic bunch is so special.
