Description:

If you''re looking for a clean R107 Mercedes SL, we''ve got plenty. But if you want one with a manual transmission, well, that narrows it down to this Euro-spec 1982 280SL. With all the same style and reliability that made these cars famous, plus a unique look and a sweet 5-speed gearbox, this might be the one to own if you''re a guy who loves to drive. For years, the Europeans kept all the good stuff for themselves. US regulations gave us big, heavy rubber bumpers and antiquated headlights, but in Europe, the SL was wearing svelte chrome-rimmed bumpers and halogen headlights that totally transformed the R107''s look. This bright silver 280SL is an ideal example of the undiluted look that Americans never see and it stands out in a big way, even today. Looking vastly more modern than its thirty years would suggest, it shows the same fantastic build quality for which these cars are famous, as well as careful maintenance that has kept it in top condition. The paint has a wonderful luster that definitely suggests great wealth, and given that the odometer goes to nearly a million miles, it might not be a surprise to learn that the mileage shown is authentic. The car just looks fantastic. Yes, the Euro bumpers are excellent, the headlights are clear, and the rest of the trim is in first-rate condition. It also includes a rather rare blue leather interior in place of the usual MB-Tex vinyl. Contrasting perfectly with the silver paint, it''s elegant and sporty, just like the rest of the car, and especially well preserved. Sure, it''s a little odd to see a 5-speed manual shifter sticking out of the console and three pedals on the floor, but otherwise it''s a traditional SL with a no-nonsense dashboard and that intangible feeling of quality throughout. This one is loaded with options like climate control, a tilt wheel, and power windows, just as you''d expect from the top-of-the-line Mercedes. The seats are in excellent shape with just gentle comfort marks on their faces, the dash is unaffected by UV rays, and the door panels and rear storage shelf are nearly new. Even the original AM/FM/cassette stereo is still in the dash. A matching dark blue canvas convertible top stows under a hard rear tonneau, and a removable hardtop was standard equipment. Despite giving up some displacement to the usual V8-powered SLs, the 2.8 liter DOHC inline six does a fantastic job of moving the roadster when linked to a 5-speed gearbox. The engine bay is neatly finished, and you''ll note a refreshing lack of pesky emissions equipment to get in your way, all due to the European specifications. Clutch take-up is smooth, and the gearbox slips through all five gears very nicely. The suspension is just as supple and forgiving as on the V8-powered cars, but thanks to a lighter front end, handling is downright agile and braking is powerful. Classic Mercedes alloys are almost completely unblemished and wear 205/65/15 Goodyear radials. The manual transmission makes this a wonderful driver''s car, albeit one that still carries all the famous Mercedes-Benz luxury and comfort. Call today! This vehicle is located in our Atlanta showroom. For more information, please call (678) 279-1609 or toll free (877) 367-1835.
