The Pagoda was replaced by a new breed of cars in 1972 through the introduction of the R107 which went on to become the second best running MB car after the G-Klasse.
In terms of looks, the R model seems a Pagoda which went through a surgical age reversal process with its headlights having been tilted 90Âº and stretched for a more aggressive look. The slightly tapered bonnet of the Pagoda was lowered thus filling the stylish hiatus between the head-lamp encasements and rest of the bonnet. New wheels front/rear bumper were added while several engines were introduced throughout the model's existence. Although the R107 is a known term amongst connoisseurs, car bearing this designation are generally referred to as the SL and SLC, exactly the names they were sold under.
