Offered here is a lovely, UK-supplied, right-hand drive R107 420SL Automatic that's showing just 43,000 miles on the odometer and has had just two previous keepers from new. First registered on 14th April 1987 and supplied finished in classic Arctic White with a luxurious French Navy Blue interior, colour-coded hard-top, matching blue hood and benefitting from factory air-conditioning, heated seats and drivers air-bag.

Today the SL presents very well, the Arctic White paint is even across the bodywork and retains a deep gloss and the Navy full leather interior shows little sign of wear. Panel gaps are uniform and overall the condition can be described as excellent. We are informed that, on test, the car performed well and still receives admiring glances when seen on the open road.

Accompanied by a detailed history file, including the original book pack, it's clearly been well maintained over the years with 17 stamps in the service book supporting the mileage. Pleasingly, the spare keys are present and this example will be presented to the sale with a major service and fresh MOT with one of the UK's most highly-regarded classic Mercedes-Benz specialist – John Haynes Mercedes.

In summary, this is a super opportunity to own a well-maintained and well-preserved, 4.2-litre, R107. These classic Mercedes-Benz from the 1980s are becoming increasingly more desirable and, rightfully so, as they are very well-engineered, beautiful roadsters with reasonable maintenance costs. Values continue to firm with really special examples rarely coming to market, however, this is a wonderful example offered at a very reasonable guide.
