Mercedes SL American Spec? The difference between The European Spec and the American Spec was the American Spec has Circular Headlights; This was because there was a law that said for some complicated unknown reason "No Cars are allowed Rectangular lights they must be round." I have no Idea why it was just a law this law was repealed in the 1990's and that's why all cars before 1990 had circular headlights. So based on this reason I can Conclude that this car is an American Spec Mercedes SL-Class R107.

Not quite. Rectangular headlights were first allowed in the U.S. market in 1975, but they had to be "sealed beam" units, which direct light beams with more intensity (and less ambient "spill") than the composite-type headlights used in other countries. Composite headlights were finally legalized for the U.S. market in 1987.

European automakers, for whatever reason, would just slap round sealed-beam headlights onto their U.S.-bound cars rather than attempt to use a similar-looking sealed-beam rectangular unit.
