For nearly twenty years, Mercedes-Benz’s C107/ R107 SL-series coupes and convertibles symbolized personal luxury. The SL from that era represented the finest in engineering, comfort, and luxury in the 1970s and ’80s. Mercedes-Benz kept the model fresh and appealing throughout its 18-year run, catering to the expectations of its high net worth customers who ranged from industry tycoons to fashion moguls and movie stars.

In recent years the feasibility, charm, and prestige of the classic SL and SLC models have placed them as favourable choices with enthusiasts. Without question, this 1981 380 SLC coupe is one of the most immaculate examples available. The car is one of just 3, 789 built worldwide during a short 16-month production run. Furthermore, it is one of only 1, 991 built for 1981. The SLC is thought to be the intelligent choice.

Delivered on 27 March 1981 to its first custodian via tourist delivery, this spectacular 380 SLC was the most expensive model offered by Mercedes-Benz at the time. Finished in Black over a rare and unusual European-only grey velour interior, the car presents in excellent condition today. The original owner specified numerous options, including a sliding sun-roof, Becker radio, air-conditioning with climate control, and fog lamps. He would retain the SLC for over 25 years.

Today the 380 SLC is accompanied with a host of its original accessories, including its original owner’s manual, maintenance books and delivery booklets. Furthermore, the car features its first-aid kit, original Dambach safety triangle, spare wheel, and tool roll with tools. Most recently, the car received a major service, including new fluids, filters, and spark plugs, on 16 December 2019 to the tune of nearly CA$4, 500, for which the invoices are available on file.

Offered with 57, 019 original kilometres (35’351 miles), this 380 SLC presents the opportunity to acquire a highly original example that would be suited for both touring and MBCA concours events.
