The fifth generation of the legendary SL series of two-door convertible sports cars was known as the R230. It featured a fully retractable hardtop that was marketed as the Vario Roof, a first for the SL class although it had been available on the smaller SLK model since 1997. The flagship models were built by AMG in the form of the SL55 and SL65, both highly tuned versions of the SL500 and SL600 respectively. The SL55 was powered by a mighty supercharged version of the 5.5 litre, V8 which produced 493bhp and achieved 0-62 in 4.7 seconds and on to a top speed of 155mph (governed). In theory the SL55 could reach 190mph if the car was derestricted but for many, the acceleration and top speed is impressive enough in its standard form.

This F1 Performance Package was originally registered on 3rd May 2006. These are exceptional cars, styled to perfection, great ergonomics and performance that must be experienced to be believed. This example has been enjoyed immensely, hence the mileage, although the most important thing is it has been well maintained. We are advised she drives very well and the roof works problem free. Finished in silver with black leather interior, this SL55 does have some age-related marks to the paintwork and will require some attention. However, this is a very competitively estimated Mercedes-Benz AMG and one that is supplied with a V5 document, a current MoT test certificate valid until 28th April 2023 and service history. These stylish sportscars are magnificent to drive and are hugely popular due to their ability to sit in traffic or travel at exceptional speed (where permitted) in comfort.
