In the Mercedes R107 series, this SL is one of the last produced 280SL. It was bought new by Mr. Bernhard J.Jans in Velbert (Germany). Unfortunately, because of health problems, Mr Jans had to sell his SL in 1987. Back then, he was contacted by a Family from Hoorn (Holland). They agreed on a price, and so the Mercedes came to Holland. In Hoorn, the Mercedes was used sporadically and only during summer days. It was in 2014, after 27 years, when due to the elderdom of the owners, and the car was not driven anymore, the decision was made to sell the 280SL. We came in contact, and were surprised by the great condition of the roadster, agreed on a price and took it home. A few days later, a CEO from a company nearby walked in,  fell in love with the car and decided to buy it. A few weeks ago, this CEO walked in again, explaining to us how his company took so much time of him, he had only driven the Mercedes for 200Km in the last 2 years. After thinking it over, he decided that maybe it would be better to let the car move on to somebody with some more time.

Special on this '85 Mercedes 280SL is, that it already has the 1986-1989 Mb-Tex 175 interior. Also rare is the hand shift 5-speed gearbox, walnut panels, power windows, heat insulted windows, the back seats, original Becker Grand Prix and the still as new dark blue summer softtop.
