Stuttgart supplied these grand-tourers with high levels of comfort including a fabric convertible top as well as a colour-matched and manually detachable hardtop that could be fitted over the stored fabric convertible roof. Other advancements included an electronically controlled damping and the famous hidden, automatically extending roll-over bar. These incredibly accomplished, five litre sportscars represent a truly advanced way to travel.

Elegantly presented in classic burgundy with a black leather interior, unmarked split-rim alloy wheels and Falken high-performance tyres, this example has remained in the vendor’s ownership for over 17 years. The mileage is relatively low and servicing has been maintained until 2012 with the last by well-respected Mercedes-Benz specialists, SS Motors of Weybridge, Surrey. In addition, a fresh MoT test certificate and light service will accompany this lot. With fully functioning air conditioning and working three-memory seat memory, this example represents a solid, well-cared for example. With just two previous recorded owners, a full Mercedes-Benz book pack, original JVC stereo and CD changer and functioning factory alarm, this ticks all the boxes for classic open touring this summer.

Interested parties should note that the automatic mechanism for this car is not operational. It will open and close manually, however.
