Successor to the European 350SL and American 450SL models, the (R107) 380SL was introduced in March 1980. Utilising the same two-door monocoque bodyshell equipped with all-round coil-sprung independent suspension (wishbone front / semi-trailing arm rear), power assisted recirculating ball steering and four-wheel disc brakes as its predecessors, the newcomer boasted an enlarged 3839cc SOHC V8 engine and improved four-speed automatic transmission.

Presented in an attractive combination of white with contrasting blue leather interior and blue hood, FLE 549Y is a US car imported in 2016 by its current owner and displays 77,503 miles on the odometer. This particular example comes accompanied with a desirable hard top, as well as a number of documents including import docs, a copy of the US title, some previous MOTs and a collection of invoices totalling nearly $9,000. The vendor rates the condition of the interior trim as ‘Average to Good’, the bodywork, engine and electrical equipment as ‘Good’ and the paintwork and transmission as ‘Very Good’.
