Nicknamed the 'Panzerwagen' by Mercedes-Benz's development engineers, the R107 series was the result of an extremely thorough design process. In an attempt to avoid falling foul of threatened American safety legislation, Stuttgart produced an open car whose structural rigidity surpassed that of some contemporary saloons! Indeed, even now some forty-seven years after its introduction, the R107 retains a reassuring air of solidity. Allied to this was sure-footed handling courtesy of all-around independent coil-sprung suspension, power-assisted steering, and disc brakes. Always more of a grand tourer than an out-and-out sports car, the vast majority of R107s were fitted with automatic transmission. Launched in September 1974, the Eurocentric 280SL was less powerful but more fuel-efficient than its V8 brethren. However, with some 185bhp and 177lbft of torque on tap from its fuel-injected 2746cc DOHC straight-six engine, the model could still boast authoritative 120mph performance.

With just 66,400 recorded miles and four former keepers from new, this example is finished in its original colour of Signal Red. Offered with both the soft top and the hard top, this example can potentially provide all year round motoring enjoyment for the new owner. It has recently been MOT'd after a long period of storage and comes with a stamped service book.
