For Sale: 1982 Mercedes-Benz 380SL in Lutz, Florida

Vehicle Description

A premium appearance, distinct details, both tops, and a true V8 cruiser style - this 1982 Mercedes-Benz 380SL is the affordable drop-top luxury classic that is an irresistible total package.

The Mercedes R107 SL is an outstanding classic today. They built these with a robustness that seems to be unparalleled by any other luxury carmaker of this era. But sturdiness is just the underlying attraction that goes with the car's elegance. There's a shining presentation of the Champagne Metallic paint that lets the luster show off the well-creased body lines. A golden pinstripe, clean glass, a power antenna, and clean black trim are all part of a sleek and quality style. As you look inside and out on this Benz, you're going to find added touches of distinction. For example, the front end has a Euro-style lower valance for a sporty appearance. And the same speed attractiveness goes for the Ronal 15-inch five-spoke alloys.

The color-matched hardtop gives this a coupe-like silhouette, and the brown soft top is quite attractive against the harmonizing gold paint. But while having two roof options makes this car ideal, we all know these SLs are best when topless. So it's nice to have a custom interior to show off. The upholstery was done within the last six years. It's a beautiful deep brown that added the Mercedes tri-star stitched into the headrest, and the rear shelf received a premium custom style. It's an impressive look, but nothing ever takes this one out of a driver's car kind of feeling. So it's both luxurious and easy to enjoy. This includes cruise control, an armrest center console, and well-contoured bucket seats. There are also provisions for features like air conditioning and power windows (they will need servicing.) And the stereo has been upgraded for better driving music thanks to an AM/FM/CD/XM that also includes USB and Bluetooth for your phone.

The 3.8-liter fuel-injected V8 is one of those ideal powerhouses with an overhead cam design that knows how to make good torque even at the low end. That's how these Mercedes-Benzes know how to pull away from every stoplight with authority. It feels quite confident out on the highway. The fully-independent suspension soaks up bumps with a comfortable feeling that somehow never isolates the sporting nature that's entertaining on a twisty country road. This is the perfect weekend getaway car as the miles are effortless thanks to features like power steering, a three-speed automatic transmission, and four-wheel power disc brakes.

Complete with the owner's manual, this is affordable vintage luxury with timeless appeal and terrific custom touches. So don't miss this SL. Call today!!!
