1987 Mercedes SL420
When you drive a R107 (save for the lowest output model) they drive like tanks in that they feel indestructible. They’re actually very easy to drive and manoeuvre which is why they remained so popular for so long and have achieved a status that whilst not maybe truly iconic they’ve become the stuff of legend due to their build quality. The R107 was produced between 1971 and 1989 with models ranging from the 280 SL to 560SL. It was heavily intended for the USA but sold extremely well wherever it was sold. Typically, most were sold as a 2 seater roadster with optional hardtop for the winter; there was the option for a small rear bench for the rear but it was impractical and at the time not often ordered.
