Jet Black over special order Charcoal velour interior 36,000 original miles Incredibly high specification The perfect car for high-speed continental cruising For nearly twenty years, Mercedes-Benz’s C107/R107 SL-series coupes and convertibles symbolized personal luxury. The SL from that era represented the finest in engineering, comfort, and luxury in the 1970s and ’80s. Mercedes-Benz kept the model fresh and appealing throughout its 18-year run, catering to the expectations of its high-net-worth customers who ranged from industry tycoons to fashion moguls and movie stars. In recent years the feasibility, charm, and prestige of the classic SL and SLC models have placed them as favourable choices with enthusiasts. Without question, this 1981 380 SLC coupe is one of the most pristine examples available. The car is one of just 3,789 built worldwide during a very brief 16-month production run. Furthermore, it is one of only 1,991 built for 1981. The SLC is thought to be the intelligent choice over the regular SL. Delivered on 27 March 1981 to its first proud owner via tourist delivery, this spectacular 380 SLC was the most expensive model offered by Mercedes-Benz at the time. Finished in Black over a rare and unusual European-only grey velour interior, the car presents in absolutely stunning condition today. Truly one of the best examples of the SLC anywhere, the car is simply immaculate, not only on the exterior but also the stunningly well preserved, special order Charcoal velour interior and underneath, the car presents like new. Even in the iconic rear quarter windows with the metal louvers which so often start to flake and crack on the surface, the louvers in this are as new too. You couldn’t wish to find a better example of an SLC anywhere, let alone the cost one would have to spend to get your average car to this standard. The original owner specified numerous options, including a sliding sun-roof, Becker radio, air-conditioning with climate control, and fog lamps. He would retain the SLC for over 25 years. Today the 380 SLC is accompanied with a host of its original accessories, including its original owner’s manual, maintenance books and delivery booklets. Furthermore, the car features its first-aid kit, original Dambach safety triangle, spare wheel, and tool roll with tools. Most recently, the car received a major service, including new fluids, filters, and spark plugs, on 16 December 2019 to the tune of nearly CA$4,500, for which the invoices are available on file. Offered with just 36,000 original miles (58,200 kilometres), making it also one of the lowest mileage cars available anywhere, this 380 SLC presents the opportunity to acquire a highly original example that would be suited for both touring and MBCA concours events. If you’ve always lusted after the idea of owning a “new” SLC, look no further because this is as close as you can get.
