Mercedes 300SL (R107)

January 18th, 2008 by Rolph · No Comments

A straight descendant from the famous Gullwing 300SL, this still shiny, sleek Mercedes might perhaps be only a fraction of the beauty of its heavenly predecessor, it still is one pretty little roadster! It is no fun, shooting pictures of nicely preserved Mercedes’, there are just too many of them, but for this one I will make an exception. All relatives of the Gullwing are welcome here 🙂

This Merc is in great condition, and although I am not a huge fan of the Mercedes models of this era, this little roadster has quite some charm in it! The third generation R107 is produced between 1972 and 1988, and I reckon this is one of the later models, the 3 liter engine version was only available for a year or two if I am not mistaken, 1986-1988.

dejurriaan adores cars like this, So let’s hope it will inspire him to post something special here as well. The Mustang which should have inspired Waizfisz still hasn’t struck gold, I’m afraid. Oh well. I have plenty more where this all came from, one day I will get lucky!
