The Mercedes-Benz 380 SL is an iconic roadster that was in production from 1980 to 1985. However, the first 380 SL nameplate actually arrived in 1972, but the name changed to the 450SL in 1973. Yes, owning a 1972 380 SL is absolutely a collector item. The 380 SL was a Slick, two-seater convertible packing a 218 hp V8 engine that could carry it from 0-62 mph in only 9.0 seconds (which was incredibly quick for its time). It also came with either a soft-top or hardtop. The only problem with having something as Classy as a 380 SL is that when it breaks, it can be hard to find parts for it.
