The Mercedes “Sport Leicht” is an incorrigible series, which attracted many real drivers to Mercedes. The R107 series of the SL replaced the W113 SL. The style clearly went from curves and bulges to a tighter, angular line, which gives the car a sporty and tough look to this day.
This 500 SL breathes the 80’s with its very stylish colour combination; Champagne metallic with a Brazil Leather brown interior and fabric hood. The 5.0 litre V8 was for the European market, the largest engine available, also the fastest of the Mercedes stable!
Our Cool Classic started his life in Denmark, after which he temporarily pioneered in the USA. Recently he is back on Dutch soil, looking for a new enthusiast. The first owner has not been modest in ticking options, because this 500 SL is equipped with the following (read all) options:
240 OUTSIDE TEMPERATURE INDICATOR
256 REAR AXLE WITH LIMITED-SLIP DIFFERENTIAL
406 SINGLE SEAT WITH ORTHOPAEDIC FRONT SEAT BACKREST, LEFT AND RIGHT
440 TEMPOMAT (CRUISE CONTROL)
470 ANTI-LOCK BRAKING SYSTEM (ABS)
504 OUTSIDE REARVIEW MIRROR, RIGHT; ELECTRICALLY CONTROLLED; L.H.D.

All this, together with a recently refurbished interior, make this a very nice driver’s car, also a sensible investment!I'm interested in this object
