Hofmann’s have the pleasure of offering this truly beautiful 1987 SL500 for sale, finished in Grey metallic over Cream leather and having recently received both a cosmetic and mechanical restoration utilizing Genuine Mercedes-Benz parts , this stunning R107 SL is a testament to its previous owner. During the sympathetic restoration many body panels were replaced with genuine Mercedes-Benz items, and along with an array of new trims, grilles and chassis/suspension components has gone into making this a very well presented SL500.
This particular car has the factory optioned hardtop along with the soft convertible roof, as well as folding rear seats and cruise control.
Accompanied by a comprehensive history file outlining maintenance and the restoration making this SL a fantastic introduction into classic cars, or a lovely addition to any collection.
The Mercedes-Benz R107 is a convertible sports car produced by Mercedes-Benz from 1971 through 1989, being the second longest single series ever produced by the automaker, after the G-Class.
The SL variant was a 2-seat convertible/roadster with standard soft top and optional hardtop and optional folding seats for the rear bench
Following the discontinuation of the SLC in September 1981, the 107 series continued initially as the 280, 380 and 500 SL. At this time, the V8 engines were re-tuned for greater efficiency, lost a few hp and consumed less fuel- this largely due to substantially higher (numerically lower) axle ratios. From September 1985 the 280 SL was replaced by a new 300 SL, and the 380 SL by a 420 SL; the 500 SL continued as the UK’s halo model in the line-up.
As with all our vehicles here at Hofmann’s, prior to delivery the car will go through a comprehensive pre sales inspection by one of our Mercedes-Benz experienced technicians.
