Known History

Unveiled at the 1977 Frankfurt Motor Show, the 5.0-liter SLC was produced from 1979 to 1981. The first models fitted with the all-new 5025cc all-aluminum V8 engine are even rarer than those produced afterwards because the displacement is some 52cc greater. Launched in 1972, the W107 represented the top-of-the-range of Mercedes-Benz for 20 years. It distinguished itself in the very difficult rally of Bandama by winning twice, in 1979 and 1980.

The car on sale, delivered by Mercedes Longchamp in Paris, is in a very elegant color combination of metallic anthracite grey bodywork, combined with a beige wool Pullman interior, and enhanced by a Nardi steering wheel. It is fitted, as it should be, on the trunk lid with a 5.0 badge and a spoiler at the edge. The covers on this exclusive model are made of aluminum and very well aligned. It comes with its on-board manual and its service logbook stamped regularly from 1979 to 2003 which shows an overhaul of the cylinder heads, the replacement of the injection distributor, the injectors, the fuel pump and the four shock absorbers. The automatic gearbox was reconditioned in 2018 at International Wagen Company and a few invoices come with this elegant coupe, but the air-conditioning system will have to be recharged with gas.
