The R107 Mercedes SL stands as one of the longest running passenger cars sold in Mercedes history. This is unsurprising with such an elegant and timeless design, and the car still looks as good today as it did when it was first unveiled back in 1971. This model is the much more rare C107 SLC, which stands for SL Coupé and had a hard top roof, replacing the W111 coupé back in 1971. The SLC was only produced until 1981 whilst the standard SL roadster continued through to 1989. This example is a US spec car, however the current owner has fitted the European style bumpers, giving the car a much cleaner and more understated look. The bodywork is also in good condition and has just received fresh paintwork. The car was originally imported from the USA to Lebanon in 2000, and the current owner has owned the car since 2019 in Lebanon. The car also comes with a good history file. Overall the car presents very well and can be enjoyed for many more years to come.
