Mercedes-Benz 500SL w107 1987

Allmän beskrivning : Hilton and Moss are delighted to bring this beautiful and well cared for R107 series Mercedes to the market. With the earlier Mercedes W113 Pagodas rapidly rising in price and top examples exceeding £200,000 the R107 SL’s have become extremely popular, and offer tremendous value for money in comparison.
Being a newer design and a smoother drive for a fraction of the cost of a Pagoda, the R107 is now a becoming a very desirable classic car to Mercedes-Benz enthusiasts. However finding a good, rust free example is a challenge, with well sorted cars often being priced at £50K plus and finding their way into private collections meaning it is very slim pickings when looking for a fine R107 at a sensible price point.
Hilton and Moss are delighted to bring this beautiful R107 500SL to the market. Being a 500SL this classic Mercedes is fitted with the largest V8 engine supplied to the UK market, and is arguably the ‘best of the breed’ produced right from 1980 until 1989. The five litre V8 engine produced a healthy 242bhp and is silky smooth making the 500SL a perfect sports/GT car. This particular car is arguably the most desirable variant being a late 1987 model. In 1986 the R107 range received a ‘facelift’ resulting in a variety of aesthetic enhancements, most noticeably the additional front chin spoiler. The cars also received further rust protection with galvanisation in specific areas.
Finished in dark metallic grey with a full grey leather interior this car is fitted with the sought after additional rear seats being a desirable factory extra. Having covered 130,000 miles from new the car does wear minor age related patina but still presents fabulously. Furthermore due to a plentiful service history and regular maintenance throughout its life this classic SL drives superbly. Within the last 12,000 miles this SL has received a top end overhaul including new valve guide oil seals resulting in an engine that pulls very strongly and starts on the key with no signs of smoke. The car has also benefited from a recent steering box was also overhaul.
Within the cars history file is a huge number of previous maintenance receipts along with a variety of past MOT certificates. Two full size keys are present together with the original service and handbooks.

År 1886 byggde Karl Benz Benz Patent Motorwagen allmänt betraktas som den första bilen. Lite visste han det var att vara i början av världens mest kända biltillverkare. -Mind Du satsningen finansierades av hans hustru Bertha Benz.

Inte alltför långt Daimler-Motoren-Gesellschaft grundades av Gottlieb Daimler och Wilhelm Maybach började marknadsföra sin bil 1901 använder nu kända namn: Mercedes (spanska för skänk från ovan), som valdes efter deras distributör Emil Jellinek dotter.

För att göra en lång historia kort, Daimler fusionerades 1926 med Benz & Cie., Blev Daimler-Benz och anta Mercedes-Benz som sin bil varumärke

Även anses av vissa konservativa sanningen är faktiskt tvärtom, Daimler-Benz historia är fylld med "firsts": Honeycomb radiator, float förgasare, fyra hjulbromsarna 1924, (även om Duesenburg Model A rapporterades att idrottsliga dem så tidigt som 1922 ), första dieseldrivna personbilar 1936, Mercedes-Benz 260 D, första direkt bränsleinsprutning i Mercedes-Benz 300 SL Gullwing (väl inte riktigt så liten 2-takts Gutbrod hade faktiskt den första direkt bränsleinsprutning), fram och bak deformationszoner ie. säkerhetscell av Béla Barényi patenterades 1951 och introducerades i "Ponton" -modellerna, Anti-bromssystem (ABS) erbjöds först på W116 450SEL 6.9, första produktions krockkuddar ... och listan kan göras lång.

Under sina 100 + år har Mercedes producerat mer än en skälig andel av ikoniska bilar; SSKL, 710 SSK Trossi Roadster, 770K Grosser, 540K Spezial Roadster, 300SL Gullwing, W100 600 Pullman, W111 280SE 3,5 Flachkühler, w113 230SL Pagoda, w109 300 SEL 6,3, W201 2,3-16 Cosworth för att bara nämna några.

Man får inte glömma de berömda Silverpilarna (Silberpfeile) antingen W 25, W 125, w154, w165, w196 som alla var mer än kapabla att kastar sina motståndare på banan.
