The third generation SL (R107) was launched in 1971, initially with just a 3.5-litre engine (350SL) mated to a four-speed automatic transmission. The car featured a two-door monocoque bodyshell with independent suspension and disc brakes all-round. Over its phenomenal 18-year reign, the R107 range was powered by eight different engines - two sizes of straight-six and six versions of Mercedes-Benz's silky smooth V8. For 1986, Mercedes-Benz produced its most powerful SL of the decade in the form of the V8 powered 560 SL. The car was the heaviest of the 1971-1989 R107 SLs that Mercedes-Benz produced, but the new 5.5 litre, V8 engine with 227hp did a fine job of mitigating that fact. The top speed was much improved and the car was quicker from a standstill to 60mph by about four full seconds. The V8-powered 560SL was manufactured from 1986 to 1989 and only offered in the US, Japanese and Australian markets.

Finished in Artic White, complemented by a Royal Blue interior ‘F143 OTT’ displays just 67,400 miles, has automatic transmission and is offered with both hard and soft tops. With an interior featuring a driver’s airbag, centre arm rest and a rear luggage area, the boot area also offers space for touring luggage and is also carpeted. The boot lid features the US Federal specification high-level third brake light and a fog light has been added for UK regulations. The original owner’s wallet with handbooks and service book, plus V5C, are included in the sale and the SL possesses a current MOT certificate into July 2023.
