|Odometer reading||48,800 miles|
|Result||Sold - £8,960|
The fifth generation Mercedes SL range was in production between 2001 and 2008 and carried the factory code of R230. This all new model featured a retractable hardtop, known as a Vario roof and an active body roll system which uses accumulators and hydraulic fluids to regulate the firmness and heights of the suspension balancing comfort and handling.
This low mileage SL500 example is presented in silver metallic with a grey leather interior and was serviced within the last 500 miles. The vendor has owned this powerful tourer for four years and during this time has completed a mere 10,000 miles. This high-end Mercedes model comes with an impressive standard level of equipment which includes electrically operated heated front seats, air conditioning, cruise control, air suspension with three settings and power assisted door mirrors. The detailed history file for this car contains various bills and receipts for works done and several previous MoT test certificates. This good looking Mercedes is offered to auction with a V5C registration document and a current MoT test certificate valid until February 2021. These are wonderfully luxurious vehicles and with a five litre V8 engine providing the power, long tours or just popping down to the shops will be extremely pleasurable. Offered without reserve.
