The SL-Class is a sporty coupe/cabriolet from the German car manufacturer Mercedes-Benz that became a hardtop convertible coupe in 2001. The name SL comes from Sport Leicht (light sport in German). Born in 1952 with the 300 SL, the SL-Class was famous in competition, winning the Panamericana race in Mexico, and its successes contributed to the notoriety of the model.
Produced in Sindelfingen in Germany from 1971, Mercedes-Benz launched the SL type R107, no more Pagoda roof as on the SL type W113, on the other hand, its hard-top, true trademark of the SL, is always present.
As for the 280SL, it will be marketed from July 1974.
237,287 units were sold during its 18-year career, 60% of which were sold in the United States. This SL type R107 was featured in many successful films and series such as Dallas, American Gigolo, For the Love of Risk, and in the first opus of The Beverly Hills Cop.
After 14 years of career, in September 1985, the SL type R107 will be restyled on the occasion of the Frankfurt show. In Europe, the 280SL is replaced by the 300SL and the 380SL by the 420SL. This restyling allows the SL to sport a new front spoiler, as well as new 15-inch wheels.
The production of the SL type R107 stops in August 1989 to make room for the type (R129).
