1985 Mercedes-Benz 300SL (R107) Almandine with Heated Seats

1985 Mercedes-Benz 300SL (R107) Almandine Red with Mushroom Leather
40,000 miles
Almandine Red Metallic (512) Beige Leather (275) and
Almandine Red Metallic (512) Hard Top and Black Fabric Soft Top (9001)
This beautiful R107 SL is finished in Almandine red with contrasting Mushroom Leather, a luxurious colour combination and a shade that changes with the sunlight. Inside it benefits from Rear Seats, Heated Seats and a Fire Extinguisher, all of which were expensive optional extras. Heated Seats is very rare to find on a R107 SL of any sort, imagine what a car this must have been back in 1989 – it’s still impressive today.
Catch this car in the orange evening glow of a low sun sky and it appears a rich maroon, whilst brighter lights show it as more cherry, leaning towards candy apple red. At SLSHOP we love this colour, and you will to.
It’s not just the paint code and trim that’s in order with this 300SL, the history file can only be described as enviable. This two owner car has been meticioulslcy cared for since the day it was built. Along with the original book pack, a folder of invoices going back to the 1990s and the fully stamped servie book, there is also a small ‘Black n Red’ notepad detailing 24 years worth of fuel spend. The only downside with this particular SL is that it might take a shade more than the £35.02 spent on 13th May 1996 to brim the tank…
