With a 0-60mph time of six seconds, the 4973cc, R129 Mercedes-Benz SL500 carried on the tradition of the fast and reliable grand touring convertible. A fully operating electric hood, windows, door mirrors and seats made this model easy and comfortable to operate. The fifth generation SL was in production between 2002 and 2008 and featured the all-new retractable hardtop - an important feature for those British showers! Mercedes-Benz followers were impressed with the stability of the car with the hardtop in place and the ease at which they could remove it. Such was its success; the SL is still one of the leading cars in the Mercedes-Benz range. This car features the very capable 5.0 litre 302bhp V8 powerplant mated to a standard automatic gearbox.
This sleek looking Mercedes was originally registered in September 2002. During the vendors tenure which started in 2015, this SL500 has been used infrequently and always dry stored. The car fired into life when requested and the impressive power hood works smoothly. The history file for this V8 powered Mercedes includes the owner’s book pack, a well stamped service history, various bills and receipts and previous MoT test certificates. Offered to auction with a V5C registration document, a fresh MoT test certificate and including the cherished number plate, this impressive Mercedes is offered without reserve.
