Mercedes-Benz 450 SLC was actually two models in Mercedes-Benz Series 107, both of which were coupes.
The first was a "base" Mercedes-Benz 450 SLC, with series designation C 107 E 45. It debuted in 1972 and was available until 1980. The car had a four-stroke V8 engine mated to a three-speed automatic transmission, and together, they were capable of 225 horsepower (217 horsepower in late 1975 and later). It also featured electronically controlled Bosch D-Jetronic fuel injection, which, from early 1976 onward, was replaced by a mechanically controlled Bosch K-Jetronic system. One distinctive feature that the car had: a front spoiler attached to the rear low end of the front apron, one that increased airflow dramatically.
The second was the Mercedes-Benz 450 SLC 5.0, series designation C 107 E 50. It ran between 1978 and 1980, incorporating a four-stroke V8 engine with a light-alloy, all-aluminum block and a three-speed auto transmission. The pairing produced 240 horsepower, and a mechanically controlled Bosch K-Jetronic system handled fuel injection. The car's discreet front spoiler, black plastic rear spoiler, and grey hue under the protective strips on its side distinguished it prominently.
