Vehicle Description

This beautiful 1981 Mercedes 380SL is for sale in our Louisville KY showroom. The SL name has always signified a certain level of quality and sophistication and the R107 model would be no exception. Introduced in 72 year as a replacement for the W113 series the 107 would make an unprecedented model run all the way through 89. For some reason whenever I see a SL I always see the opening scene from American Gigolo, and the sound track from Blondie playing in my head. This 81 is a great example of an original well preserved 380SL. Owned by the same family since 2003; this little 380SL has been garaged and was part of their collection of several classic cars. This SL was usually driven on the week end to various outdoor car shows. The exterior is finished in the classic gold reminding you this is a sports car. With the front engine rear wheel drive design handling characteristics are not quite what you would expect. The ride is plush yet stiff with the just the right amount road feel making it an absolute pleasure to drive. The interior is exactly what you would expect from a Benz. There is enough high quality leather to cover three sofas with the bucket seats being as comfortable as they look. The interior door panels are in great condition and definitely remind you that you are in a high end luxury car. With the late 70's and early 80's German cars being one of the hottest commodities in the collector car market this beauty is sure to find a new home quickly. Options on this 1978 Mercedes 450SL include; AC, AM/FM/Cassette, Seat Belts, Power Steering, Power Brakes, Power Windows, Power locks, Power Windows, Power Seats, Tilt Wheel, Manual Convertible Top and Aluminum Alloy wheels with Radial Tires.
