The SL-series 107 . which rang a new Design line Mercedes Benz, which the broadband mainly of H4-Headlights and the grooved tail lamps. A wedge form suggested one gave more attention to the With the types 450 SLC (C107 and 450 SLC 5,0 and/or 500 SLC (C107 E50) Benz end of the seventies — or less successful — at participated like 30,000 km Vuelta la America del Sud (1977), the Rallye (1979) and the Bandama (1979/1980).

Engines and drives

The in the R107 were partial (the V8 engines was presented to in the S-class W108/109) or like the row six M110 in 280 SL (1974) an advancement of the from the W113. The row six cylinder had a cam shaft head and carried 185 HP There were the two V8-Motoren (1971) with 3,5 (200 HP, name M116 ) and starting 1972 with 4,5 litres HP, M117 ) capacity. Over the running time of the R107 of 18 the engines were adapted to the environmental regulations again and and changed in achievement or capacity. there was the 450 SLC 5,0 starting from with a 5-l-V8 with cylinder block, which 240 HP out. There was this starting from 1980 as 500 SL also in the Roadster. 1985 it the largest Facelift for the R107: A new ( M103 ) with 188 HP in 300 SL (this designation did not give it since no more) and a M116 with 218 HP, out of 3,8 to 4,2 l (420 SL). The distribution was also with catalyst, standard starting from and starting from 1989 Versions without catalyst available until 1989 and called starting from (re-tooling vehicle).

The 560 SL is weaker due to the achievement the impairing exhaust regulations than the 500 SL; the 560 SL in officially one did not sell.

The type 450 SLC 5,0 from 1980 500 SLC) a characteristic: to the weight savings the hoods from aluminum built. Furthermore it kept a rubber tail spoiler — a new fact in the house Benz!

The types 450 SLC 5,0 and 500 SLC are not different in the designation: meanwhile the predecessor 450 SLC 5,0 a automatic transmission with to which high torque gear wheel corroding was propelled for the first time 500 SLC over a four-course automatic which was to be built only improved materials and manufacturing durable.

==Sicherheit and Ausstattung==

The new SL embodied within the range of passive new yardsticks: Barnyis security with crunch zones in and in the back and the shape-firm passenger — the three-box principle found also in the 71er SL its The backbone of R 107 was not simply a shortened and sedan understructure as with the but its own frame ground installation closed Kardantunnel as well as box crosswise and side members, characteristic in different was appropriate and for the Knautschverhalten resulting from it.

the SL under all circumstances should be an car without the A-columns remained windshield as only safety for the Roadster with a possible They were developed by on new and furnished a firmness than the built higher around 50 per so far. Besides the windshield was for the increase of the firmness in the frameworks (in the SM was that already one year in times). That resulted in a strength in the case of the roof test, with which the car was permissible also without in the The back window in the Hardtop was adhesive.

Even in the interior there innovations pointing the way. The panel was impact flexible and both in the upper and in the knee Likewise a novelty: the four steering wheel, freshly the realizations of the accident researchers. Had the percussion pot, but steering ring, which were spokes, already worked, pad and hub with PU Telescope safety column and the steering gear the front axle supplemented the precautions under the sheet In addition standard 3-point The door handles were again and in such a way designed they did not jump up also violent impacts automatically, further with hand to open left.

The seats from the outset available head restraints and mechanism belts. Who wanted absolutely, a could order seat behind the seats in place of the hatrack, whose utilizable kept itself however within close borders.

For and condition security those independently of the stagnation pressure and over flaps regulated, spontaneously reacting heating, by a new air conditioning of the doors. A small Gag was the flashlight integrated in the glove Dirt rejecting linings at and outside mirrors permitted view also in bad weather. The wiper arranged closely to each other in center of the car considerable 70 per cent of the disk lay always optimally in the air flow and did not off even at higher speeds

In the course of the years the offer at passive and also active equipment continued to increase. there was a Airbag for Fahrer.Wie from 1980 ABS and starting 1982 with Mercedes usually, was long the list of the extras and could the car substantially the price of. Everything was offered by window lifters over the heating up to the air conditioning system and the telephone.


On basis of the famous fin Daimler Benz had presented both a and a Cabriolet, which appropriate construction period a new should follow. The next , the slowly ripening new S-class, was not in time seizable, in order to a based on it at the beginning of the 70’s. to the SL-basis one fell back, since already far more further a draft waited Karl Wilfert in the Sindelfinger of prototypes for its realization.

The SLC, as the was called official , had its on that Paris automobile in October 1971. Up to the windshield its corresponded to that of the Roadsters, off there it upward and into the Over the viersitzigen Fahrgastabteil the roof in gentle roundness, flows into an enormous, diagonally standing back curved in two directions, stretches which dictated again a opulente length to the tail and trunk lid contrary to the Roadster an convex outline exhibited. In the view the length was documented of all by the larger wheel base, opposite 2460 millimeters, by the line of the side windows, as usual with a Mercedes had to be fully concealable, without B-column. With the SLC however a placed itself into the way in question: The short distance door and rear wheel required for a high-complicated and therefore trouble-prone turning tilting mechanism, in order to let the rear windows disappear. Karl way out of this dilemma were stylistic not undisputed, but most doubly glassed view with the inserted lamellas, partitioned and made the side smaller in such a way that it be sunk problem-free.

For the first model for all following Mercedes of models was stowed away this car to today standard aid kit in a special hollow under the window. The SLC from 1971 to as 280, 350, 380, 450 and 500 with the same engines and equipments was offered as the Roadster. An formed 1978 to 1980 of the 450 SLC in which the new was first launched.
