The third generation SL was launched in 1971, initially with a 3.5-litre V8 engine mated to a four-speed automatic transmission as offered here. The car featured a two-door monocoque bodyshell with independent suspension all round - double wishbone, coil springs and anti-roll bar at the front and semi-trailing arms, coil springs and anti-roll bar at the rear. The power assisted steering was Daimler-Benz's own recirculating ball system. Braking was by discs all round - ventilated on the front. The 350SL was available from 1971 to 1980. It produced some 200bhp at 5800 rpm and 211lbft of torque at 4000 rpm. This was sufficient to endow the model with swift, effortless acceleration and a top speed of a whisker over 130 mph.

This right-hand drive 350 SL was produced in 1977 and was first registered in the UK in October that year. Finished in Thistle Green with Tan leather and brown chequered interior trim. Being offered from a private collection where it has resided for the past 3 years and used sparingly as informed by the vendor, the 350 SL is offered with service history and previous MOT certificates. This example is also supplied with a dark green hard top and a current MOT until October 2020.
