Provenance: Property from a South Carolina estate.

Other Notes: This is a highly unusual, low mileage Mercedes-Benz model. As a rule, the "SLC" models tend to be of higher mileage than their sister "SL" models because they are used as regular cars rather than being just a "fun" car for a pleasant day out.

In the early 1970's the Mercedes-Benz motor car lineup was missing a two-door coupe. Previously the coupes were based on the S-class sedan versions, but at this time the S-class was not considered suitable for conversion. Mercedes designer Karl Wilfert prepared a study based on the C107 sports roadster, which was to enter production in 1971. By extending the wheelbase, room was found for three more seats in the back, and the first of the SLC's was presented at the Paris Car Show in October 1971. The new sports car was noted for the comprehensive list of safety features incorporated in all of the different models.

The SLC remained in production for 10 years and was phased out in 1981 with the introduction of the S-class Coupe type 500 SEC. During this time, a total of 62,888 of the many different versions were built.

The SLC became well known in the late 1970's when Mercedes-Benz decided to use this model extensively in international long distance rallye events.

This particular vehicle is equipped with a 4.5 litre (275 ci) V8 producing 225 BHP providing 279 lb/ft of torque at 3,000 RPM. 0-62 MPH is reached in 8.8 seconds with a top speed of 134 MPH.

  • The vehicle has been subject to re-paint. The interior is only particaly leather and after market MB-Text style. The mileage cannot be confirmed and could be higher.
