If you were in 2015 in the market for a decent SL R107, you might have wondered how expensive they have become. Especially the 560SL, which everybody seems to want, is for many people out of reach. But the R107 is not only the 560SL, an early 450SL or even a manual 350SL can be as much fun to drive. The same is true for the SLC, where a 350SLC or even the underpowered US 380SLC can be enjoyed as much as the 500SLC. These cars are in general available at half of what the top of the line models cost, given a similar condition.

If you plan to buy a small roadster and have considered the SLK R170, you will find that prices in 2015 for these nice cars can vary greatly. Which one to buy, the four-cylinder or the more powerful V6. Or how about the AMG version or even a Brabus powered über-SLK? Actually, it doesn't really matter, depending on your budget and what engine…
But whatever the engine size, if one wants to buy an SL, this e-book can help finding the right R/C107. Fully updated in summer 2015, it comes with a COMPREHENSIVE BUYER'S GUIDE for both the SL and SLC and explains in detail their VIN and DATA CARD.
