A multiple MB Club Concours d’Elegance winning Mercedes-Benz 420SL R107.

EQUIPMENT
Light-alloy bonnet, easy-closing doors, broad polycarbonate front air dam, detachable colour coded hard top, retractable soft top, impact zones, anti-burst locks, strengthened windscreen pillars, headlamp wash/wipe, parking lamps, individually adjusted temperature zones, heated door mirrors, fire extinguisher, toolkit, power assisted steering. Factory fitted options; MB Tex trim. Dealer options; Mercedes tailored overmats (two sets), wind deflector.

EXTERIOR
Only on a rare occasion do pictures not quite do justice to the physical condition, but personal inspection of this one-off multi-concours winning 420SL will leave you speechless. The product of a healthy obsession by the previous owner of over ten years, whose aim was to source an excellent well maintained R107 420SL, and embark on creating an award winner. Finished in the original colour of Signal Red, (Code 568), the paint finish is worthy of its high-profile trophy winning credentials and is virtually flawless. All panels are pin straight with no damage whatsoever, and the underside and wheel apertures have also received concours treatment being fully detailed with every nut, bolt and clip not only polished to perfection but retaining Mercedes-Benz parts only. The factory fitted Black hood and side and rear hood windows are perfect, as is the original colour coded hard top. Created to successfully win the notoriously strict MB Club Concours d’Elegance, to the extent where the car was once marked down a point due to a rainwater droplet sat on the slam panel, it is difficult to convey just how outstanding this car is.

INTERIOR
Upholstered in factory optional Black MB Tex Leather, (Code 171), the seats are in perfect condition with no cosmetic wear and all foam and seat structure remains firm and springy. The deep pile carpets are pristine having been protected from new by two seats of genuine Mercedes over mats. The fascia is perfect and all the gauges, controls and electrics operate exactly as they should. Concours condition is met with concours accuracy with the 1986 dated fire extinguisher as well as the optional Becker 754 radio/cassette, fitted only to 1986/7 cars, in full working order along with the correct Hirschmann electric antenna. The boot area has the correct factory supplied toolkit as well as the original warning triangle in the plastic sheath. Originality seekers will further note the rear light clusters complete with delicate manufacturer stickers still attached. A showroom perfect interior.

ENGINE & TRANSMISSION
The penultimate model in the R107 range is the powerful 420SL V8 with a power output quoted in the manufacturer literature of 218bhp and 330Nm of torque, enough to propel this performance machine to a maximum speed of 133mph whilst 0-60 is achieved in 9.0 seconds. The engine bay is pristine down to every nut, bolt and clip and displays an astonishing attention to detail, with every manufacturer sticker, plates and panel stamping and PDI marking intact and exactly correct. A genuine Mercedes battery is fitted and there are even the plastic numbered HT leads clips still fitted, long lost on most examples. The four-speed automatic transmission is flawless in operation with positive kickdown. This car does not just look incredible, the driving experience is second to none with important precautionary work undertaken to include the timing chain, tensioners, water pump, oil pump, sprockets and more.

WHEELS, TYRES & BRAKES
The stylish 15-hole light alloy wheels, as fitted to later models, are immaculate and five quality matching branded Michelin 205/65 R15 tyres have masses of tread, the spare wheel still having changing guide tag attached! The wheel weights are fitted externally as per factory. Another feature of this later model 420SL is the Anti-lock Braking System fitted as standard.

HISTORY FILE
This exceptional 420SL is one of the initial final facelift cars introduced in 1986 and was first registered on 11th June 1986 by Mercedes Main Dealer, Bradshaw Webb of Chelsea. The history file is quite simply breath taking with the original service book containing 28 stamped entries along with the full book pack in the plastic wallet as well as all dealership literature and both genuine Mercedes roof prongs neatly stored in the pouch holder.

In 2008 the car was purchased by Mr John Boggis who was the R107 Model Register Captain of The Official Mercedes-Benz Club for seven years only resigning in 2019. Both John and his 420SL are incredibly well regarded in club circles, the car having amassed an impressive collection of concours winning awards, trophies and best in show winners. John has created a colossal history folder and detailed recorded of works that is split into chronological order for each year of his ownership. Perusal of such would take hours with literally hundreds of Mercedes main dealer receipts for genuine parts purchased, even down to nuts, bolts, clips, rubbers and washers. The total spend is an eye watering figure and has clearly been done for none other than the love of the car and a desire to create something as perfect as possible. Only cars that achieve the grade on condition, accuracy, history and attention to detail manage to compete successfully in the MB Club Concours d’Elegance, and the cabinet filling collection of awards and trophies speak for themselves, all included.

MOT June 2020, HPI clear.
