Here is the chance to own a rare SL roadster finished in Classic White / Blue & Aluminum Block V-8 Engine.
What makes this SL differ from the other ones on the US roads is that this is EUROPEAN model, featuring more powerful 5.0 liter V8 engine (more power and HP than US model 560SL), elegant European one piece square headlights, and more aesthetically appealing European short bumpers -- The way Mercedes-Benz Designed the R107 Series. The 500SL is also fastest production R107 SL produced.
During its production course from 1980-1989 there was ONLY 11,812 of 500SL's produced WORLDWIDE and this beauty is ONE of them, there is not a lot of R107 SL's like this one on the road today.
Paint has a very nice shine and luster, this beautiful German roadster is a head turner. White is the originalcolor, ithas had one exterior re-spay last year.Body is in wonderful condition and it is very straight. All doors, hood, and trunk are operating with ease, and everything lines up properly.
