Mercedes 560 SL-Class - Sport, Leicht und Super Ganz Klasse.
The SportLeicht-Klasse, and, in this case, the all-star boy of the playground; the 560SL.
As the successor to the Pagoda (W113), the (W107) had a massive push to succeed such a greatness. In a production span of no less than 18 years, well, 240,000 were made, so it's fair to say it succeeded. The 107s are already starting to rise in value considerably, and like Mercedes often is, they are a good investment.
So how is it that this is such a formula for success? At 1560KG and highly comfortable seats, the car isn't exactly Sport or Leicht.
The answer is simple but all-encompassing: the car exudes finesse, has power and is a bonk of German quality.
This now makes the car a great classic, daily driver or holiday car.
Ours? The very largest block with 227 horses, fully original paint, US-delivered but 'Vereuropeest' and in a delightful colour combination. All documentation is present and the car is in excellent condition.
Mercedes - the brightest star in the galaxy of car brands.
