This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.
The 560SL is the R107 everybody seems to want. But the R107 is more than that, an early 450SL or even a manual 350SL can be as much fun to drive. The same is true for the SLC, where a 350SLC or even the underpowered US 380SLC can be enjoyed as much as the 500SLC. These cars are in general available at half of what the top of the line models cost, given a similar condition.
If you have an interest in these fast appreciating cars, this reference work will tell their story, all upgrades and changes included. Updated in December 2016, it comes with over 200 pages and more than 160 mostly recent non-Daimler AG color photos. The book offers a comprehensive buyer’s guide for both SL and SLC. It also looks at their individual price developments up to November 2016 and explains in great detail their chassis number/VIN and data card. Paint and interior options are discussed and a separate chapter tells the fascinating story of the almost forgotten 500SL Rally car. This book is available both in electronic and hard copy formats.
