We are excited to have a 1981 Mercedes 380SL. The Brown exterior and tan interior on this car are a classic combination and it wears them well. In 1980, Mercedes-Benz revamped its SL lineup of sporting luxury convertibles with the introduction of the 380SL. The 380 was a further development of the R107 chassis, which was first used in 1972 by the 350SL, and then later by the 450SL. Like its forebears the 380SL was a heady mix of V-8 power, refined luxury, and sporty underpinnings, and it was as a very popular model during its run in the U.S. The 380SL, so-named for its 3.8-liter V-8, had a smaller engine than the 450SL and was consequently 120 pounds lighter. The two engines were very similar in performance despite the difference in their displacements. Outside of the engine, the 380SL also received a new four-speed automatic transmission, which further enhanced distance driving. Suspension, meanwhile, continued to be the same fully independent setup as in the earlier cars, and four-wheel disc brakes remained standard. The 380SL ended production in 1985, at which point it was replaced by the 560SL. With the prices of the 380SL’s being less than the 450SL’s mainly because of the difference in displacement but with similar performance. The Mercedes-Benz 380SL is a fine choice as a collectible 1980s convertible at an affordable price.
