Mercedes-Benz 560 SL Roadster 1986 - World Of Classic Cars -

Mercedes-Benz 560 SL Roadster 1986

In 1971, Mercedes-Benz introduced the successors to the W111 coupe and W113 sports models. Designated in-house as C107 and R107, respectively, they used the chassis components of the W114 sedans with V-8 engines of 3.5, 3.8, 4.2, 4.5, 5.0, and 5.6 liters. Some six-cylinder cars were also built, using 2.7- and 3.0-liter engines from 1975 to 1989.
The first SL model debuted in April of 1971 as the 350 SL, with the first U.S. models appearing in 1972, still named 350 SL but featuring a 4.5-liter engine. Unsurprisingly, the 450 SL name was adopted for 1973, and engines increasingly grew in size, all the way up to the 560 SL of 1985, including for the USA and other non-European markets, produced until 1989. This car featured the largest engine of all, as well as alloy engine hoods and trunk lids. The engine itself was also all-aluminum.

A beautiful and remarkably well-kept car. Finished in red, it has a black leather interior and is well equipped. Its features include an automatic transmission, power steering, power brakes, power windows, factory air conditioning, a Clarion stereo sound system with auxiliary speakers, and both hard and soft tops.
