The fifth generation of the iconic Mercedes-Benz two-door convertible has the factory code R230 and was produced between 2001 and 2008. It features a retractable hardtop, known as the Vario roof and an active body control system which offers the balance of comfort and handling by regulating the firmness and heights of the suspension. From 2004 the model was updated to include a seven speed transmission which is superior to the previous five speed version.
This impressive SL600 was first registered in September 2007 and has benefitted from additional body styling by Brabus and presents extremely well in black with a beige interior. This sleek cruiser is enhanced with a set of split rimmed alloy wheels. The stunning looks of this Mercedes are complemented by a good service history. Turn the key and the 5.5 litre V12 engine fires into life producing a glorious exhaust note and, we are told, is a joy to drive. Presented to auction with a V5C registration document, a current MoT test certificate and a file containing various bills and receipts. This rare example is well estimated and would make an ideal summer tourer.
