The 560SL is the Mercedes-Benz 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. Last updated in March 2018, it does not only show you the cars’ history, it also explains in detail their chassis number and data card and offers a comprehensive buyer’s guide. Superb recent non-Daimler AG color photography highlights many of the cars’ features, this includes pictures of the suspension. These are some of the topics covered:
•The development of the R107 and C107 from the 350SL to the 560SL and 500SLC
•A rotary piston engine
•The 1980 facelift
•The 1981 engine update
•The 1985 facelift
•The tuning scene
•The forgotten 500SL Rally
•The chassis number explained
•The data card explained
•What is my R107 worth: price development from Feb.2010 to Feb. 2018
•R107 buyer’s guide
•Which R107 should I buy
•Technical specifications and production figures
This guide ends with a free book offer. Enjoy!
