Lot 193 - 1994 Mercedes-Benz SL500
|Odometer reading||61,750 miles|
|Result||Sold - £15,120|
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.
Presented in blue with contrasting biscuit leather trim this one owner from new SL500 was first registered to our vendor on the 11th May 1994. When the car was ordered, the vendor was invited to Stuttgart to view his particular SL in production. Supplied with the original book pack, including maintenance book, which has 11 main dealer stamps until 2007 and 42,726 miles. At this point our vendor used a local garage, Eaton Square in Belgravia SW1 to continue maintenance on a regular basis, the last being carried out in February. At this point the car was MoT’d and valeted. The car boasts the hardtop and wind guard and with just 61,750 miles, is a low mileage example of a one owner car. The private plate L500 JJM is also with the car presenting we think, very good value for the larger engine SL R129 in possibly the best colour combination.
