Although larger than their predecessors, the 350 SL convertible and 350 SLC coupé retained the overall look of the long-running 230/250/280 SL family and were the first Mercedes-Benz sports cars to use a V8 engine, the latter's 200bhp more than offsetting the increase in bulk. All-independent suspension ensured superb ride and handling, while four-wheel disc brakes restrained the 130mph-plus performance. There was a choice of either four-speed manual or similar automatic transmission, and the 350 SL/SLC were luxuriously equipped in the finest Mercedes-Benz tradition. This automatic transmission 350 SL convertible's body was refurbished in 2011 and re-sprayed, the interior being re-trimmed at the same time in nice chequered cloth. Running and driving nicely, the car comes with a handbook and V5C document.
