1992 Mercedes-Benz 300 SL news, pictures, specifications, and information

Coupe/Roadster
Chassis Num: WDBFA61E7NF045685
 
Sold for $7,475 at 2013 Bonhams.
The classic Type 107 Mercedes-Benz bodyshell was retired in 1989. It had served a long and prosperous life, lasting almost two decades and captured the hearts of enthusiast from around the globe. The new Type 129 body style was equally appealing and sleek in a modern idiom. The Type 129 body style was used for three different engine types: 6.0-liter V12, 5.0-liter V8 and 3.0-liter straight six. The 300SL was given a fuel-injected six that was available in both 12- and 24-valve versions, the latter being 41 horsepower more powerful at 231 bhp, the only available option in the United States, and offering improved performance with zero-to-sixty mph taking just 8.4 seconds. Top speed was in the neighborhood of 150 mph. The vehicles were so impressive that event the late Princess Diana replaced her XJS with a 500SL in 1992. This was the first time a member of the British royal family acquired a car not built in their own Kingdom.

The new SL luxury sports cars were designed to be leaders in their class and were lavishly equipped in the finest Mercedes-Benz tradition.

This example is finished in Signal Red. It left Stuttgart, Germany in September of 1991. It is an original United States delivery car fitted with the 24-valve version of the straight six. It came fully loaded with both tops, automatic climate control, 10-way power seats with 3 memory settings, passenger side SRS airbag, and automatic pop-up roll bar system.

The odometer shows fewer than 47,000 miles since new, with about 6,000 of those being accumulated during the last three years.

In 2013, the car was offered for sale at Bonhams Auction in Scottsdale, Arizona. As bidding came to a close, the car had been sold for the sum of $7,475 including buyer's premium.
