This 300 SL of the series R 107 was subjected to the delivery control of the Daimler Benz agency in Bad Homburg on 09 April 1986 and registered on the same day on its first owner in the same place. In October 1997 the roadster was re-registered to her husband and finally sold to Stuttgart in May 1998. The next owner had the 300 SL registered to him on May 22, 1998 (at approximately 42,500 km) and, like its previous owners, took exemplary care of it.
In 2017, it was finally acquired by the current owner, also living in Stuttgart, who, however, never registered the car, but moved it with oldtimer license plates.
The checkbook was consistently maintained over the years, due to the low mileage, the back pages were partially written and several pages additionally pasted. The first inspection took place on 14 June 1986 after 1,450 km in the Daimler Benz agency in Bad Homburg. From the total of 13 entries in the checkbook until 2017, the kilometers can be clearly traced. In addition, there are all TÜV reports since 2002 and many workshop invoices from 1998 onwards. For example, a new exhaust was fitted in 1998 (at 42,525 km), a D3 catalytic converter from Paul Wurm GmbH in Stuttgart was retrofitted in 2006 and a new cylinder head gasket was fitted in 2012 at 53,600 km.
Today, the roadster still presents itself in its as-delivered condition. Thus, it is completely Matching Numbers and Matching Colors inside and out, the rare paint in Diamond Blue (355) is largely still in its original paint. The interior is completely in original condition with a very elegant patina, which makes the charm of the 80s due to the low mileage great to experience.
As one of the few R107 delivered in Germany, this one has received air conditioning from factory as an optional extra. The entire list of optional equipment includes the following items:
Thanks to the low mileage, the extensive documentation and the great original condition, this example is a vehicle very worthy of preservation and a safe investment. But the Roadster also invites you to drive it, it shines with an impeccable engine run and a direct driving feel.
Equipment and special features
History of the series
The descendant of the now legendary SL series created in 1954 was also drawn by the designer of the 300 SL (W 198), namely Friedrich Geiger. With its headlight design, it established a new design line at Mercedes-Benz in 1971, with many elements also appearing in S-Class (W 116) introduced one year later.
The 107 series was available as a coupé (C 107) and roadster (R 107), the majority of which was produced as an export model for the USA and enjoyed great popularity there, mostly as a V8 model. The series set new standards in passive safety: in addition to a defined crumple zone, reinforced A-pillars and a safe four-spoke steering wheel from the outset, ABS was also available from 1980 and a driver airbag two years later.
Thanks to the wide range of engine options and extensive optional extras, the R 107 remained on sale for over 18 years and, after the G-Class (W 463), is the longest series produced by Mercedes in history.
The vehicle is located in our showroom in Stuttgart-Plieningen, close to the airport/trade fair. A test drive and an inspection on the car lift are possible by arrangement.
The sale takes place on request with new inspection, service and TÜV. We also offer a wide range of accessories for your new dream car. If required, we can also deliver the vehicle to you in a closed trailer.
