Gateway Classic Cars Houston Showroom is pleased to present this sleek Cabernet 1985 Mercedes 380 SL. The Mercedes-Benz SL-Class is a grand touring sports car manufactured by Mercedes-Benz since 1954. The designation SL derives from the German Sport-Leicht, translating to Sport Light in English. In 1971 the R107 was introduced with new design language and safety features that spread to the subsequent Mercedes-Benz models. For the first time, the V8 engines were fitted to the SL-Class. The R107 received its first update in 1985 with deeper front air dam, revised brake system with larger disc and four-caliber brakes and driver’s side airbag. The 5-mph bumpers and four round sealed-beam headlamps fitted to the US models remained unchanged from the previous generation. Even as a classic this SL retains all the features that make it a true luxury machine, including conveniences such as power windows, power locks, AM/FM/CD radio and cruise control. This classic is colored in Cabernet with a beautiful Burgundy leather interior. The 3.8-liter V8 long block has been replaced, making this convertible ready for the miles to roll by. While having two roof options of a hard-top and a soft-top makes this car ideal, we all know these SLs are the most fun when the top comes off. This is a great weekend getaway car, as the miles are effortless thanks to features like power steering and four-wheel power disc brakes. Don’t miss out on this one! Call or email our Houston Showroom today to make it yours!
