I’ve been harsh on the R107 in the past. I’m still not in love with them but a 560SL like this one for sale in Oregon sure is softening my stance. This 1988 not only shows a little more than 10,000 miles, but it also has the ultra-desirable European bumpers and headlights. With this R107 you have the perfect mix of ultra-low mileage, incredible condition, rare parts with a collector market with money to burn. So how high will the bidding go for this pristine 560SL?
Engine: 5.6 liter V8

Just to reiterate, this car is absolutely flawless. Sellers throw around the term “showroom condition” a lot and on 99% of the cars I see with that term used I roll my eyes. Not with this one. Everything is perfect and even has the original hang tags from the dealer. The Cabernet paint is amazing and the condition of the wood would make a Rolls-Royce owner envious.
Now let’s talk price. A nice 560SL with 50,000-100,000 miles and a solid maintenance history will probably set you back between $15,000 to $20,000, depending on the color combination and the location. As I write this, the bidding is a hair under $40,000 and I think it still has more steam in it with a few days to go. Would I be surprised to see it top $50,000? Not at all.
The only downside I see with buying this car is that you can afford to be picky with the 560SL. On eBay right at this moment, there are currently eight other 560SLs with under 50,000 miles. Three of those cars have under 25,000 miles. Is there a giant value difference between a car with 10,000 miles and 18,000 miles? Probably not. But what will put this car over the top from the rest is the European bumpers and headlights. It totally transforms the looks of these cars and is worth every penny cosmetically. So if you have been waiting for the perfect R107, this one might be it.
