1987 Mercedes-Benz 300SL (RHD) (Car in UK)
It was not only the safety aspects that motivated customers around the world to quickly reach for the new SL. It was the promise of an open-top car that was a successful piece of engineering all round – and it was! In fact it was the only car available in its class a period of several years which boasted its state of the art features.
Extremely conducive to comfort and ease of operation was the easily and speedily operated soft top, a refined version of the “Pagoda” top. It took just 30 seconds to open or close it. Folded, it disappeared underneath a cover that was meanwhile customary in the SL series.
A number of details underscored the car’s safety aspirations. The seats were available from the start with head restraints, and seat belts also were included. Physical well-being and driver-fitness safety were served by the heating system with its very spontaneous response, supported by new air ducting in the doors. Newly developed wind-deflecting mouldings on the A-pillars, which also served to channel off mud-laden water in the rain, and dirt-repelling covers on the exterior mirrors enabled good visibility
This particular example is exquisitely presented throughout and one of the very last of the iconic series facelift model with the highly rated 3 litre straight 6 engine fitted. Finished in the original colour combination of Petrol Blue Metallic with light Grey hide with factory fitted 15 hole aluminium road wheel ( with x4 matching Goodyear tyres) rear seat, head lamp wash wipe, power assisted steering, electronic windows & ABS brakes. Supplied new via Majestic Mercedes Benz formally the manufacturers agents for Hampshire and Dorset, the original service book boasts an impressive 33 services which gives a true reflection of what a highly cherished car this has been by its former custodians.
The coachwork is virtually flawless as well as the chrome work and aluminium road wheels.
