Classic Car Auctions says:

Offered at No Reserve, this R107 SL would benefit from some TLC...

  • Dating from 1978, the 230bhp, 450SL was no slouch with 0-60 in 9.7 seconds and 133mph
  • UK-supplied, right-hand drive car now finished in Nautic Blue Metallic with a matching hard top
  • Fitted with later Mercedes-Benz 'Starfish' alloys 
  • R107 SLs are fast, comfortable and discreetly understated, and quite valuable in good condition
  • Some time and a moderate investment would take this Classic Mercedes to the next level
