Launched in 1971, the Mercedes 107 series immediately became a best seller in European and US markets, with a design reminiscent in some respects of the earlier Pagoda SL. A range of models was offered during the 18 year life of the 107, with the new 5 litre being launched in 1980, which was enhanced over the next 5 years culminating in the last year of manufacture of 1989, being the 5.6 litre 560 SL for sale here.
Built in late 1988, and first registered in Canada in October 1988, and having only covered the equivalent of 44K miles since new, this 560SL is in excellent condition, both mechanically and body wise, together with having an excellent original interior, documented service history.
An extremely well cared and well maintained 560 SL originally built to Canadian specifications with Kilometre instrumentation and European headlamps ideal for continental touring.
This SL is one of the best unrestored cars we have seen in recent years, being an original low mileage example, complete with service invoices, MB Factory service book, handbook, and EU import docs.
Model History and further information:
The 107 series were the last of the hand built Mercedes from Stuttgart, renowned for their durability and strength, they have become increasingly sought after in recent years, with low mileage well cared for examples fetching in excess of £40K.
The 560 SL carried a big, 5.6-liter V-8 under its long bonnet. The single-overhead-cam, fuel-injected engine produced 227 horsepower at 5,200 rpm and 287 foot-pounds of torque at 3,500 rpm. Power was directed to the rear wheels by a four-speed automatic transmission. The 560 SL could accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in approximately 8 seconds, which was reasonably quick in its day. It had a top speed of about 149 mph.
The SL employed disc brakes with ABS at all four corners, which was not yet common in the late 1980s. The car had a double-wishbone front suspension and a diagonal axle setup in the rear. A traditional recirculating-ball steering system was used, rather than the more-modern rack-and-pinion type.
Having been manufactured and registered in 1988, the 560SL is now 30 years old and qualifies for the reduced rate of VAT at 5%
