Complete bare metal repaint in factory Astral Silver 21 service's & 26 MOT. We do love the R107 Mercedes-Benz. A solid car with styling queues reminiscent of the famous W113 but with more modern creature comforts, modernised styling, more power and a more comfortable ride. The W113 "Pagoda" was something special—a real trendsetter with its unique roof and a focus on safety that was way ahead of its time. From its introduction in the '60s, it showed the world how elegance and safety could coexist in a car that was beautiful to look at, and innovative. But then came the R107, and boy, did it turn things up a notch. Think of the R107 as the cooler, more powerful counterpart that took everything great about the "Pagoda" and just ran with it. Mercedes offered both the straight-six engine, or a new and powerful V8 engine, a real step up in performance from the W113. Not just that, but it also came packed with even more safety and comfort upgrades—better rollover protection, the option for anti-lock brakes, and a ride that's as smooth as butter, thanks to its refined suspension and extra room. So while the "Pagoda" will always have its charm and its place in history, the R107 is like stepping into the future of luxury roadsters. It's like the "Pagoda" showed us how it's done, and then the R107 took the baton and made it better. This R107 is fitted with the V8, a real step up from the straight-six's and our car has a comprehensive service history and meticulous care throughout her life. Having been entrusted to 7 owners, it's history included 21 specialist service stamps and 26 MOT certificates. The car comes with two sets of keys, the original owners' manual, and books, providing a full picture of its well-documented journey. In a recent renewal of its splendor, the car has undergone a full repaint in 735 Astral Silver, a choice that pays homage to its heritage while highlighting its sleek lines and timeless design. This cosmetic rejuvenation is matched by practical enhancements: all four wheels have been refurbished and fitted with new Michelin tyres, ensuring both visual appeal and driving excellence. Notably to, is a significant amount of mechanical work that was completed in 2021, ensuring that the car operates flawlessly. From the engine to the suspension, every component has been attentively serviced to guarantee a driving experience that is both comfortable and responsive. The soft suspension and precise gear changes make for a ride that is effortless and enjoyable, whether navigating city streets or cruising on the open road. On a recent drive to the park for a photo session, the car performed impeccably. Its engine delivers power smoothly and efficiently, responding eagerly when prompted without compromising the serene driving experience. The car feels tight and well-composed, a testament to the quality of the recent work and its enduring design. With its striking Astral Silver finish, comprehensive service history, and exceptional mechanical condition, this 1987 Mercedes-Benz 500 SL is a remarkable find for any enthusiast or collector. It represents an opportunity to own a piece of automotive history, perfectly blending classic appeal with modern reliability.
