About this Mercedes-Benz R107

EXCEPTIONAL EXAMPLE & ONLY 70,884 MILES FROM NEW!

The comfort and sheer usability of the R107 explains its enduring popularity amongst enthusiasts and these qualities also make low mileage examples like this one both a rare and surprising find. The appeal starts with its condition and very low mileage for its age and, if you add in the potent 4.2 litre V8 Engine, stylish Astral Silver Metallic paintwork with a check cloth interior + a factory hard top, you have a really good example of these much-loved cars.

This beautiful Mercedes 420SL was initially a Mercedes Benz, Colindale, London showroom Demonstrator and was first registered by them on 1st June 1987. It is finished in arguably one of the best colour combinations of Astral Silver Metallic with a Grey check cloth interior, Grey carpets, Burr Walnut trim, original Steering Wheel, 4196cc V8 Fuel injected Engine, 4 Speed Automatic Transmission with Sport & Economy settings, ABS Brakes, Power Steering, Electric Windows and Passenger Door Mirror, original Fire Extinguisher, First Aid Kit, Warning Triangle, Becker Bremen uprated DAB Stereo with 6 CD stack in boot and amplifier, its original Mercedes Benz Black Mohair Soft Top, factory Hard Top, Mercedes Wind Deflector, LED bulbs to interior/dash + reversing lights and sitting on its original and refurbished 15" Flat Face Alloy Wheels with Michelin Energy Tyres.

This car has had 7 former keepers on the log book, but it was originally a Mercedes demonstrator and one change relates to a company into a director's name + a dealer who removed a cherished number plate, so its really only 5 owners from new and only 4 owners in the last 25 years, 2 in the last 10 and with the current owner having purchased the car in January 2018.

In 2016, the previous owner fitted a USB connection for a Garmin Sat Nav in the Glove Box, all dashboard instruments and interior bulbs were changed to LED bulbs + the reverse lights and boot light to LED + a switch in the boot to turn on/off. Please see details of the upgrades and specifications in the attached documents.

It has now only covered a genuine and fully documented 70,884 miles from new with a Full Service record including 15 stamps in the service book - 13 by Mercedes Benz main dealers, all MOT certificates from the 1990's to date including a DVSA MOT history report, lots of invoices and old Tax discs and it has its original Mercedes Benz wallet with a Drivers Handbook and literature. The timing chain and Tensioner was replaced in 2016 @ 65,511 miles by Mercedes specialist H A Lock Motor Engineers and, in July 2019 @ 70,195 miles it had a Full Service and a new Stainless Steel Exhaust system fitted by specialist Christian Lewis Ltd.

The current owner has hardly used the car since he bought it 6 years ago and it has covered less than 1,000 miles during this time. It has been stored in his garage and on a SORN and only MOT'd twice in the last 6 years, so due to the lack of use, he has decided to sell it.

The car comes with an HPi check and certificate, copies of the V5 registration documents showing its ownership history, letters/emails from previous owners + it was entered into a Mercedes SL show at Woburn Abbey in 2015 and came 1st. If you do want to be picky, there are a couple of small scratches on the rear deck where the hard top sits, but thats about it! It is in genuinely exceptional condition throughout and for those looking for a little extra performance over the six cylinder 300SL, this wonderful 420SL with a lovely V8 soundtrack has to be very tempting.

Upon sale the car will receive a pre-sales Service and a new MOT and it will come with our own 6 Month Mechanical Warranty which can be upgraded and extended at additional cost if required.
