With summer just a hint around the corner - as soon as the Spring snows disappear - we thought it was about time we invested in some more convertibles. So we've added perhaps the daddy of GT convertible tourers - the mighty Mercedes R107 SL, built throughout the 1970s and 80s. It's the convertible car for the customer who likes wafting without being wafted by the less than warm breezes of a British summer.
The Mercedes SL is a classic Merc in the old tradition - hugely solid build, fuss-free to drive and extremely relaxing whether you keep the top up or put it down. The Great Escape Classic Car Hire Mercedes is a pre-facelift model with the 2.8 litre straight 6 engine. This means it has simple, classic 70s styling and attractive chrome/colour coded wheel trims. The car has an automatic gearbox, huge, comfortable armchair seats and a good size boot.
The Mercedes SL is available to hire from our Cotswolds site near Stratford Upon Avon by the day, weekend or week. Prices include unlimited mileage, insurance for 1 driver (extra drivers £25 each) and full UK breakdown cover. You can find out more by visiting http://www.greatescapecars.co.uk or call 01527 893733.
"The Mercedes Sl is all about fuss-free, relaxed cruising," explains Graham Eason of Great Escape. "It's perfect for wafting along with a slight breeze in your hair."
