PPW Motorcars is pleased to offer this stunning 1978 Mercedes-Benz 450SL, which was exquisitely ordered in the Special Order Magnetite Blue with a beautiful Blue soft top over a soft and supple Parchment Interior! Being the only one we have come across in this drop dead gorgeous color, this is one of the rarer and most handsome combination that could have rolled off the factory floor! As a gentleman’s car, this is one of the few that was ordered in classic, understated, and elegant colors. The stunning and timeless colors are both period correct and still fashionable today whether it be a trip to the country club or country home with understated elegance. Move quickly as you may never see another!
What makes this vehicle truly worth owning is the level of detail and hand assembled craftsmanship that is present in no automobile currently produced. This magnificent motorcar was produced in an era when owning a Mercedes-Benz meant something significant. There was no such thing as a $299 a month lease on a new C-Class; ownership was reserved for just a select few. This vehicle was one of the most expensive and best overall vehicles available during its time; it combined the road holding ability of a sports car with the opulent appointments of the finest luxury cars. This was a vehicle for the most discerning individual to whom sacrificing any virtue of the vehicle for the sake of another was unacceptable.
Setting this vehicle apart from nearly all others is the low mileage and magnificent condition throughout. When you see this car inside and out, it is clear that this is not only a low mileage example, but also one that was cared for to the highest standard and as importantly was stored properly. The gauges, lettering on buttons, seats, dash, and beyond are all original and nearly as crisp as the day it was delivered. We sell over 30 R107’s every year and this is one of those that we wish we could duplicate again and again. Further, it drives as crisply as it looks. The suspension is tight, there is not steering play, it fires right up and runs fantastically both hot and cold, and more. Further, this vehicle just underwent a major service and is ready to be enjoyed today! During the service we changed the oil/filter, spark plugs, air filter, serviced the A/C, new tires so it rides and handles like new along with having the wheels fully refinished. We have not seen a better car in a long time, at any price. Offered for the true collector, investor, or enthusiast who understands and appreciates the investment potential of this extremely rare, low mile, top of the line, correct, and well documented Mercedes-Benz 450SL! Bid with confidence-you will not be disappointed in this magnificent motorcar!
