Thanks to a longer wheelbase and fixed roof, the C107 SLC was able to offer the same experience as the R107 SL in a fixed-roof package that provided seating for 4. Luxury features for the time period such as automatic climate control, power windows and cruise control, give this SLC a phenomenal classic Mercedes-Benz luxury experience paired with stunning coupe styling. With production ending in 1981, the SLC was produced in far smaller numbers than its soft-top counterpart making it much more rare and difficult to find. This example presents really well with its recently refinished Astral Silver paint and Blue Leather interior. These C107 SLC coupes are still somewhat under the radar and offer great value for money for a Mercedes enthusiast looking for their next classic.
