During its production lifespan, 66298 examples were created. The 350 and 450 SL were built as replacements for the 230, 250, and 280 SL model range. Under the hood was an eight-cylinder, OHC engine capable of carrying the car to a top speed of over 120 mph and sprint from zero-to-sixty in just over ten seconds. The 450 SL had the larger 4520 cc eight-cylinder engine while the 350 SL was powered by a 3499 cc unit. With V8 engines increasingly common aboard full-size Mercedes sedans during the late ’60s, it was inevitable that a V8-powered SL would appear. But in 1972, few would have expected that the new SL (code-named “R107” inside Mercedes) would define personal luxury cars for almost two decades, and over that time, be powered by eight different engines. For 1973, Mercedes acknowledged the obvious and changed the names of America’s R107 to 450SL and 450SLC, but carried them over otherwise virtually unchanged. However a change to SAE “net” horsepower ratings meant the 4.5-liter V8 carried a 190-horsepower rating. Like all cars sold on the American market that year, the 1974 450SL got a set of big bumpers to meet new government regulations and an ignition interlock system that meant the car couldn’t be started until the driver’s seatbelt was fastened. US models sold from 1976 through 1979 used the Bosch K Jetronic system, an entirely mechanical fuel injection system. All US models used the 4.5 liter engine, and were called 450 SL/SLC.
