Gateway Classic Cars of Charlotte, North Carolina, is proud to list this classy 1979 Mercedes-Benz 450SL.

As the longest-running passenger car in Mercedes-Benz history, the R107-series of SL-roadsters earned its place as an icon of the 70s and 80s, blending performance, safety, and quality in an impeccably styled two-seat roadster. Like the R113 that preceded it, the R107 was designed to be a sports car that you could drive in all conditions. It was beautifully built, with an optional removable hardtop and superb build quality, defying the idea that sports cars had to be finicky and rough around the edges. As Mercedes' flagship sports car for seventeen years, the R107 looked as crisp and sophisticated in 1989 as it did in 1972.

With just under 114,000 miles, this car might as well be a time capsule. The Pastel Blue color shines great, and the dark top compliments it brilliantly. Take the hard top off, set it in the included stand, and get in. After settling into the beautiful saddle brown driver's seat, the Nardi steering wheel begs you to grab it with both hands. Turning the ignition key fires up the overhead camshaft V8. Now set the Alpine stereo to your favorite music. All that's left is to put the shifter in "D" and drive off into the sunset with this classic SL. Call us today before you watch someone else drive off.
