THE MERCEDES-BENZ R107

When Mercedes redesigned its famed SL in 1971, there was a lot of equity behind it – after all, when the incomparable 300SL Coupe and Roadster were built fewer than 20 years before, they set the world on fire. The next-generation 230/250/280SL in 1963 brought Mercedes' sports car down to Earth, replacing both the incredible 300SL and four-cylinder 190SL.

For the next SL, Mercedes started with the chassis of the mid-size "W114/115" model and added the motors from the large "W116" S-Class. The result was a luxurious V8 Convertible that ended up being the longest passenger car series ever produced by Mercedes to date. Despite its age, the final iteration, the 560SL, remained a prized automotive status symbol and an iconic part of the brand's lineup, until it was finally replaced by the all-new fourth-generation SL in 1990.


THE MOTORCAR OFFERED

Completed at the Mercedes-Benz Sindelfingen plant in June of 1987, this exceptional 560SL was delivered new to the US market through Sun Motor Car in Camp Hill, PA. The new Mercedes-Benz looked just as it does today; finished in Deep Blue over a light brown interior, generously optioned and equipped with both soft and hardtop. The first owner was a Patricia Haubert of Mifflintown, PA, who paid over $60,000 for the luxurious Convertible. Clearly very fond of the car, Mrs. Haubert would keep the car until purchased by the consignor in 2012.

Today, this fine Mercedes-Benz presents in extraordinarily original condition throughout. With just 9,250 documented miles from new, the car appears to be just a few years old, with original finishes throughout and an comprehensive history file containing the original window sticker, books, tools, PDI inspection from 1987 and many service records.

An extremely original, high quality Mercedes-Benz ideally suited to open top touring, with nearly all the power amenities of a modern car, yet with the elegance and style of the classic Mercedes-Benz SL.
