Vehicle Description

In 1980, Mercedes-Benz revamped its SL lineup of sporting luxury convertibles with the introduction of the 380SL. similar to its earlier cousins the 380SL was a heady mix of V-8 power, refined luxury, and sporty underpinnings. It was as a very popular model during its run in the U.S.The 380SL, featured a 3.8-liter V-8 power plant. Despite having a smaller engine than the 450SL it was designed with emission control in mind, unlike the 450. This resulted in the two engines being almost equal in power (155 hp in the 380SL vs. 160 hp in the 450SL). Performance and fuel economy were similar for the two cars.The 380SL received a new four-speed automatic transmission, which improved longer distance driving. Fully independent suspension remained the same and four-wheel disc brakes remained standard.1985 was the last year for the 380SL, to be replaced by the 560SL in 1986. The 380SL has become a popular, more affordable alternative for collectors of the classic Mercedes 80's roadster lineup.
