The R 107 and C 107 took the chassis components of the mid-size Mercedes-Benz W 114 model and mated them to the larger engines from the W 116 S-Class. The SL version was a two-seat roadster with standard soft and hardtop with optional folding seats for the rear bench. The SLC (C107) derivative was a two-door hardtop coupé with normal rear seats. The SLC is commonly referred to as an 'SL coupé', but in reality, it was an S-class coupé replacing the former saloon-based 280/300 SE coupé in the Mercedes-Benz line-up. The SLC was replaced earlier than the SL, in 1981, with a much larger model, the 380 SEC based on the new S class. Sales in North America began in 1972, with the name 350 SL, but with a larger 4.5 litre, V8 engine and was renamed 450 SL/SLC.
This incredibly low mileage example is presented in silver with a blue velour trim; it has covered a mere 27,801 miles from new. With just four previous owners, this example was owned by the head of Mercedes-Benz Owner’s Club while in Jersey until 1993 and was cared for by Jacksons Garage. Well looked after, this Mercedes-Benz was garaged throughout the winter months and has always been very well maintained. A recent maintenance by leading UK specialist, the SL Shop, has included new brake calipers and rear pads. This time warp example, in great condition and with a low mileage, is a true collector’s opportunity not to be missed.
