- Matching numbers & colors
- Fully known history
- Rare 5.0L model
The Mercedes-Benz SLC is part of the R107 series, which was introduced in 1971 and built on the success of the R113 series, which laid the foundation for today's world-renowned SL class and otherwise needs little introduction.
The Mercedes-Benz SLC 5.0 is an elegant and stylish classic coupé, offering the perfect balance between sportiness and comfort. With its design like a true 2+2, pillar-less side windows and a raised roofline for extra headroom in the rear, the SLC offers comfort during every drive for both driver and passengers. The suspension is fully independent, supported by disc brakes on all four wheels, and the robust unibody chassis ensures a stable and safe ride.
Our 450 SLC 5.0 is one of only 1615 units and was delivered on 28 June 1979 by "Mercedes Garage J van dijk en Dochters B.V." from Rotterdam to its proud Dutch owner, by whom it was lavishly compiled with options and no expense was spared so the car possesses, among other things, a limited slip differential and air conditioning. Judging by the original service booklet supplied, the car has always been correctly maintained over the years and taken care of where necessary. In the course of 2013, the car came into the hands of a new owner who spared no expense to completely strip the car down to its bare metal plate and then have it professionally repainted in its original silver colour, so that it is still in perfect condition today. This extensive restoration, by the way, is fully documented and reflected in the meticulously maintained history that comes with the car.
At the end of 2015, the car was sold to its 3rd and current owner, who, as a true Mercedes Fanatic, researched and compiled all the history of the car down to the last detail. He still has the car fine-tuned to put it completely in order: the time-correct electrically adjustable and heatable Recaro C seats with correct blue Pullman velour, a complete overhaul of the front suspension, a major maintenance and so much more .... The good care of the previous owners ensures that on the present day, the car is still in absolute top condition.
The car pulls well at all revs and is a pleasure to drive with its, found under the bonnet, all-aluminium M117 5.0-litre V8 producing a whopping 240hp and mated to a three-speed automatic transmission for smooth and efficient performance. The car can perfectly serve for a nippy rally which was also the one reason Mercedes released this one but also equally suitable for a quiet Sunday drive with the family. In short, our SLC 5.0 with its robust performance and exceptional ride quality is the car of choice for those seeking style and comfort in a sporty coupé.
If you are looking for a powerful and stylish coupé that offers what you are looking for in terms of performance, comfort and safety, the Mercedes-Benz SLC is the perfect choice. This is a classic car that excels in every way and will make you enjoy every drive.
