Coupe
Chassis #: 107.024.12.026711
Sold for $16,500 at 2016 RM Sotheby's : Motor City.
First introduced in 1971/1972, the 450 SL roadster and 450 SLC coupe were outwardly identical to their '350' (3.5-liter) sister models, but under the bonnet lurked a more powerful 4.5-liter V8 engine. The interior highlighted Mercedes-Benz's increasing preoccupation with safety, which boasted a padded dash top, recessed or flexibility mounted switch gear, and a padded steering wheel on a 'collapsible' column.

Designated in-house as C107 for the coupe and R107 for the sports models, they wore modern styling courtesy of Paul Bracq and used the chassis components of the W114 sedans. In addition to the roadster model, a coupe version available, the SLC (identified by its 'C' suffix). The SLC was distinguished by its fluted rear quarter 'sail panels.'

Bosch K-Jetronic fuel injection became standard in 1975, with electronic ignition and self-adjusting hydraulic tappets being introduced at the same time.

Production of the 450 SLC continued through 1981, which the roadster model would continue in the offering through 1989. Of the 62,888 examples built, just 1,636 were the 450 SLC.

This particular 450 SLC is an original Japan-delivery model. It left the factory finished in Astral Silver over Black fabric interior, which it still wears today. It resided in the Netherlands until recently and still has all of the distinctive European-specification features still intact, such as the 'Euro' headlights and small bumpers. The interior sports automatic climate control, cruise control, fully tinted windows all around, a front seat armrest, and a Becker stereo radio and cassette player, among other options. Additionally, the car is equipped with a sunroof, which it has had since new.
