SL Class History

The Mercedes-Benz SL-Class (formerly known as the SL Roadster prior to 1994) is a grand touring roadster manufactured by Mercedes since 1954. The designation SL derives from the German Sportlich-Leicht. span > (English: Sport Lightweight). The original idea was suggested by American importer Max Hoffman. who perceived a market for a toned-down Gran Prix car tailored to affluent performance enthusiasts in the booming post-war American market. which remains the primary market for the vehicles.

The SL designation was first applied to the 300 SL. often referred to as the "Gullwing" due to its gullwing or upward-opening doors.

The term SL refers to the marketing variations of the vehicle. including the numerous engine configurations spanning six design generations.

Starting in 1980. the 350. 450 and 450 SLC 5. 0 models (like the 350 and 450 SL) were discontinued in 1980 with the introduction of the 380 and 500 SLC in March 1980. At the same time. the cars received a very mild makeover; the 3-speed automatic was replaced by a four-speed unit.

The 280. 380 and 500 SLC were discontinued in 1981 with the introduction of the W126 series 380 and 500 SEC coupes. A total of 62. 88 SLCs had been manufactured over a ten-year period of which just 1. 36 were the 450 SLC-5. 0 and 1. 33 were the 500 SLC. Both these models are sought by collectors today. With the exception of the SL65 AMG Black Series. the SLC remains the only fixed roof Mercedes-Benz coupe based on a roadster rather than a sedan.

Following the discontinuation of the SLC in September 1981. the 107 series continued initially as the 280. 380 and 500 SL. At this time. the V8 engines were re-tuned for greater efficiency. lost a few hp and consumed less fuel- this largely due to substantially higher (numerically lower) axle ratios that went from 3. 27:1 to 2. 47:1 for the 380 SL and from 2. 72:1 to 2. 27:1 for the 500 SL.

From September 1985 the 280 SL was replaced by a new 300 SL. and the 380 SL by a 420 SL; the 500 SL continued and a 560 SL was introduced for certain extra-European markets. notably the USA and Japan.

Also in 1985. the Bosch KE Jetronic was fitted. The KE Jetronic system varied from the earlier. all mechanical system by the introduction of a more modern engine management "computer". which controlled idle speed. fuel rate. and air/fuel mixture. The final car of the 18 years running 107 series was a 500 SL painted Signal red. built on August 4. 1989; it currently resides in the Mercedes-Benz museum in Stuttgart. Germany.
