|Odometer reading||59,803 miles|
|Estimate||£11,000 - £14,000|
|Result||Sold - £12,768|
It is easy to see why the Mercedes SL model, with its manufacturer codename of R129, was to prove a best seller during a build run that lasted from 1989 to 2002. Launched as a two-door, two-seater roadster with an automated textile roof and a shell like, colour matched, powered tonneau cover. The new model was delivered with an impressive number of standard features and included many innovative details including the option of electronically controlled damping and a hidden, automatically extending roll over bar.
This limited edition Designo example is presented in metallic blue with a bespoke black Nappa leather interior. One of only 50 cars produced for the UK market, this attractive roadster comes with its factory hardtop and an impressive service history. Presented to auction with a V5C registration document and an MoT test certificate which expires in July 2020, this low mileage example has been well looked after by the owner and has covered a mere 59,803 miles from new. This desirable Mercedes-Benz should command serious attention given its sensible estimate.
