Mercedes-Benz 450 SL
Production of the first R107 car started in April 1971 alongside the last of the W113 cars. USA models sold from 1976-1979 used the Bosch K Jetronic system; an entirely mechanical fuel injection system. All USA models used the 4.5 liter engine, and were called 450 SL/SLC.
In September 1977 the 450 SLC 5.0 joined the line. This was a special version of the big coupé featuring a new all-aluminum 5-liter V8, aluminum alloy doors, hood and trunk lid.

Starting in 1980, USA cars were equipped with lambda control, which varied the air-fuel mixture based on feedback from an oxygen sensor. The 450SL and 450SLC models were discontinued in 1980 with the introduction of the 380 and 500SLC in March 1980.
