The R107 was a staple in the Mercedes-Benz line-up for nearly two decades and this 1989 model year is one of the later face lift cars which includes the more powerful 5.5-liter M117 V8. Unlike most customers who went for a muted color palette, this R107 is finished in an eye-catching Signal Red which truly compliments the strong lines of the R107. Showing just 73k miles and with a recently replaced soft top, this example would be a phenomenal addition to any enthusiast’s collection providing a classic top-down Mercedes-Benz experience.
