Mercedes-Benz is a German luxury vehicle producer that needs no introduction whatsoever. One of their finest model line-ups was the Mercedes-Benz R107/C107 range of cars, produced from 1971 till 1989. These were classified as sports car/grand tourers. The R107/C107 were available in the SL and SLC configuration. Up for grabs is an impressive 1980 Mercedes-Benz 280 SLC Euro model, with just 66,562 miles on the clock.
Bedecked in a stunning Lapis Blue which the seller reports is a recent re-paint, this 1980 Mercedes-Benz 280 SLC is sure to draw attention for its grace and beauty. The 280 SLC is a 2-door hardtop coupe, which can be distinguished by the rear quarter window slats. The front features a slatted grille with the Mercedes-Benz logo on it. Below the front bumper, a pair of fog lamps can be observed, while the hood is host to the Mercedes-Benz roundel. Moving on to the rear, the trunk lid is host to the 280 SLC badge and the Mercedes-Benz logo. The car sits on a set of true vintage Mercedes-Benz wheels finished in chrome and blue, with the Mercedes-Benz logo in the middle while white-walled tires run around it. A perfect match for the exteriors Lapis Blue color is the Blue Plaid interior color, this whole color combination is reminiscent of the Santorini hotels in Greece. The 4-spoke steering wheel is finished in an unassuming black behind which rests the cluster gauge which is done in white and yellow. The interior features a wood trim as well. The seller is giving the car away with the factory tool kit, manufacturer's original literature, and three keys.
While North America received the SL and SLC with only a V8, Europe had the choice of the 2.8L and 3.0L inline-6 engines. This 1981 Mercedes-Benz 280 SLC is host to the fuel-injected 2.8L inline-6 coupled to a 4-speed automatic transmission which sends power to the rear wheels. It is reported that the fuel system was cleaned, a new distributor installed, and new fuel lines and fuel tank were all done and installed in 2020. The top speed was officially stated as 129 mph as new which is quite decent for the time.
