Mercedes-Benz 450 SLC - 1980

In 1971, Mercedes-Benz introduced the successors to its W111 coupe and W113 sports models. Designated in-house as C107 and R107, respectively, these cars featured crisp modern styling by and used the chassis components of the W114 sedans, with 2.7- and 3.0-liter six-cylinder engines and, later, 3.5-, 3.8-, 4.2-, 5.0-, and 5.6-liter engines for the American market, beginning in 1972. In addition to the classic roadster model, a coupe version was available, the SLC (identified by its “C” suffix). A sleek and sporting grand tourer, the SLC was distinguished by its fluted rear quarter “sail panels.” It was produced only through 1981, while the roadster model would continue in the offering through 1989; 62,888 were built, of which only 1,636 were the 450 SLC. It is this rarity that makes the 450 SLC among the most scarcely seen modern Mercedes-Benzes, and a model which is instantly recognizable to the connoisseur as more than just an “SL with a hardtop.”
