Mercedes 350 SL
Mercedes. More than a badge.
With the 350 SL, Mercedes built a new roadster class in 1970 that has remained almost unchanged for two decades. This series, also known as the R 107 (where the R stands for roadster), symbolises the classic travel sports car with modern technology, which combines particularly good driving performance with a high degree of comfort.
And what a great idea it was to combine good driving performance with comfort. The 3.5-litre V8 with 200 HP provided absolutely lavish driving performance for its time, but not at the expense of comfort. When you look around the car, you immediately notice that no savings have been made on the chrome. Indeed, it is everywhere (even in the door lock) and when you look into the cockpit, the 70s comes fully alive again. It exudes an atmosphere of solidity and it breathes German punktlichkeit. At the time the car was anything but cheap. In fact, at the time the 350 SL was twice as expensive as an E-type. But we believe it was ‘money well spent’, because this is an unprecedentedly good car.
And then there’s ours; it’s from the third owner, it was recently checked technically and it’s in a super good, original and undamaged condition. You don’t see them like that very often.
