1983 Mercedes-Benz 380SL
Based on the extremely successful and well-loved R107 chassis, the Mercedes-Benz 380SL built upon the technological developments of the earlier 350SL. It was powered by a 3.8L version of the M116 V8 engine, with a single overhead cam for each cylinder bank and Bosch Jetronic fuel injection. The 380SL was marketed and developed as a high-end personal luxury roadster and, as such, earned a reputation as a car with significant prestige. The SL class had remarkable build quality, comfortable yet sporty road manners, a large V8 engine, and all of the modern options one would expect from a European luxury car. Combined with the reliability that came with a Mercedes V8, and the 380SL was truly ahead of the competition.
