1981 Mercedes-Benz 380SL (RHD)
- Single family ownership since new
- 34,800 miles only from new
- Finished in beautiful Smoke Silver with Burgundy interior
- Superb condition throughout
No formal introduction is needed to the iconic R107, but when Mercedes-Benz took the W114/W115 chassis and the engines from the W126 S-Class range, the ‘Sports Line’ range was born and production began in 1971. Success spread across the globe for 18 years of production, however in North America only the 450SL (with a low compression 4.5 litre V8 engine) was supplied up till 1980, when the lesser powerful replacement 380SL came into production under restrictions of emission laws.
Our 380SL is a truly stunning, low mileage example, finished in a lovely colour combination of Smoke Silver over Burgundy Interior with Sport Check inserts. The majority of these SLs, owing to their well known reliability as a car from Mercedes “overbuilt” era, have usually done well over 100,000 miles, with our car having covered just 34,800 miles in comparison.
Being post- 1980, the car benefits from being a facelift example with numerous improvements over the earlier model, the biggest being an upgrade from a 3-Speed to a 4-Speed automatic transmission. Absolutely superb original condition inside and out, this car is truly one of the nicest examples one would wish to find and the perfect car for the fast approaching Summer with its light, airy interior.
