1981 Mercedes-Benz 380 SL
OFFERED WITHOUT RESERVE
In 1971, the SL series from Mercedes-Benz entered its third generation with the release of the R107. This luxurious roadster featured a powerful V8 engine that provided a thrilling driving experience. Initially, it came with a 3.5-liter engine, but as regulations became stricter, it was updated with a lighter all-aluminum 3.8-liter V8 engine. The car's versatile design included a convertible soft top and a removable steel hardtop, making it suitable for use in any season. The timeless Teutonic design of these cars continues to be celebrated, making them a versatile classic in the Mercedes-Benz collection. With its sleek appearance and impressive performance, the R107 is a true masterpiece of automotive engineering that continues to captivate car enthusiasts to this day.
