The R107 is an icon of the 80’s and one of the most recognizable classic cars from Mercedes-Benz. Being produced for 17 years, the V8 version of the R107 in the US started out with a 4.5-liter V8 and eventually graduated to the larger 5.5-liter version starting in 1986. While the R107 continues to solidify its legendary status among a lineage of SL's, R107's in above average mechanical condition are becoming tougher to find than ever with the M117-powered 560SL's leading the way from a collectibility and value standpoint. This example presents exceptionally well showing just 68k original miles and dozens of service documents dating between 2012 and 2020. With a clean exterior finished in a desirable Signal Red paint, this 560SL is sure to bring plenty of attention from dedicated enthusiasts and is certain to provide many years of Mercedes excellence for its lucky new owner.
