For nearly two decades, Mercedes-Benz’s C107/R107 SL-series coupes and convertibles symbolized personal luxury. The SL from that era represented the finest in engineering, comfort, and luxury in the 1970s and ’80s. Mercedes-Benz kept the model fresh and appealing throughout its 18-year run, catering to the expectations of its well-heeled customers who ranged from industry tycoons to fashion moguls and movie stars.
In recent years the feasibility, charm, and prestige of the classic SL and SLC models have placed them as favorable choices with enthusiasts. Without question, this 1981 380 SLC coupe is one of the most immaculate examples available. The car is one of just 3,789 built worldwide during a short 16-month production run. Furthermore, it is one of only 1,991 built for 1981.
Delivered on 27 March 1981 to its first custodian via tourist delivery, this spectacular 380 SLC was the most expensive model offered by Mercedes-Benz at the time. Finished in Midnight Blue over a rare and unusual European-only grey velour interior, the car presents in excellent condition today.
