The following is information I found about Grey Market cars on the internet.
Desirable Mercedes-Benz models never officially available in America R107 Roadsters
280SL: The combination of a 6-cylinder engine and an automatic transmission makes this R107 variant more fun than any U.S.-market 107 ever was.
Any Mercedes vehicle that was imported outside of Mercedes-Benz of North America dealer network is a gray-market car. This does not include European delivery vehicles because they had to be ordered through a dealership. Gray-market Mercedes-Benz (GMMB) cars were purchased in Europe, imported and then federalized. Many of these models were never sold in United States, or were European variants of U.S. models, equipped with interesting options and generally, more power.

The gray market was born out of an economic perfect storm. The U.S. dollar was incredibly strong, making the purchase of European goods cheaper. The German economy was not doing so badly either, and sales of Mercedes-Benz vehicles in Europe were healthy. Savvy Americans knew they could buy a discounted Mercedes in Europe for half the cost they’d pay stateside. The only issue was getting them here and modifying the cars to meet U.S. Department of Transportation safety standards and Environmental Protection Agency emissions standards.
