Of all the R107 SL Mercedes Benz variants, the 420SL is the rarest, with Mercedes only producing roughly 13,500 units. We recently had the pleasure of dry ice cleaning, washing, and restoring this Mercedes 420SL. We applied paint correction, polished various chrome parts, buffed the interior trim pieces, and shampooed the interior, you name it!
The 420 SL was fitted with a 4.2L v8, the M116, producing a whopping (for the time) 201hp in the US “catted” market. The European “non-cat” Mercedes Benz 420SL produced 215hp, and I am sure it just sounds awesome.
