Located in San Diego, CaliforniaFresh out of a Vintage European Collection, This ultra-rare, California 1980 280SL with 4 speed manual transmission has been held in a private collection by the current owner for over 10 years. No expense was spared in enhancing and maintaining this classic piece of history. Exhaustive records dating back to the 1980’s from the original owner detail the car’s Daimler Benz in Germany maintenance records as well as all importation records & mechanical history which includes a full engine rebuild/overhaul 10,000 miles ago. Mechanically this 280sl with its M110 engine handles and performs the way it’s designers in Germany intended it to. With outstanding compression, the dual overhead cam inline 6 accelerates with plenty of low end torque and power yet still pulls strong at speeds of 80 M.P.H. The manual 4 speed gear box allows for shifting at higher RPMs making allowing for a more sporty drive. Recent suspension work makes for a tight ride while the newly replaced shifter bushings make shifting a pleasurable experience. It is abundantly clear why many prefer the lighter weight of the inline 6 R107/C107 versus it’s heavier V8 counterpart.
