Description 1978 Mercedes-Benz SL-Class SL

Few
luxury roadsters are more iconic than the Mercedes 450 SL.  The 450 SL is an elegant, capable touring car
lavishly engineered to impress. The V8 SL was the exciting successor to the
Pagodas (code named “R107”) it would redefine personal luxury cars for decades to come.  Affectionately referred to as “der Panzerwagen”
the 450SL was longer, lower and wider and the twin headlights and fluted tail
lights augmented the new design.  The car
now sported a 4.5 liter SOHC V8, dual wishbone front suspension and improved
trailing arm rear suspension.
A removable hardtop makes the SL cozy in cold weather and the convertible top
is elegantly hidden away beneath a cover. 
Driving the SL is a pleasure and the car deserves the reputation of “Driving
the Star”.  It is a blend of luxury and
sportiness unencumbered by modern electronic gimmicks or “Nanny Options” This car is finished in classic Grey with Red leather, and is original in every
way.  
I purchased the car from its second owner here in Victoria, British
Columbia.  We have an almost Mediterranean
climate and this was her sunny day driver. 
The 450SL attracted me as a rapidly appreciating classic car (see
Haggerty Valuations) that could be driven, enjoyed and easily serviced at any
Mercedes dealer or specialist.  Destined
to be the next SL to rise behind the Pagodas the 450SL is a great addition to
any collection.
