The Mercedes-Benz W107 series (officially known as R107 for the roadster and C107 for the coupé models) was produced from 1971 to 1989, making it the longest-running Mercedes model alongside the G-series. In total, about 237,000 copies were made. The R107 replaced the W113 (Pagode) in 1971 and was succeeded by the W126C in 1981 for the coupe (SLC) models and by the R129 in 1989 for the convertible (SL) models.

Together with the 500SL(C), the 380SL (BM107.045) and the 380SLC (BM107.025) were also introduced in 1980 as a replacement for the 350 models. These had the new alloy 3.8 liter engine (M116E38) with 218 hp (5500 rpm) and 305 Nm (4000 rpm). In 1981 production of the SLC models was discontinued and the successor 380SEC from the W126 series was introduced.

Anecdote : The W107 was seen worldwide in the popular soap series Dallas. Actor Patrick Duffy drove as Bobby Ewing in this series in a red Mercedes W107 380SL and it is said that this led to rising sales figures of this Mercedes Roadster in those years.
