|Odometer reading||49,000 miles|
|Result||Sold - £19,040|
The R230 generation of Mercedes-Benz SL Class was introduced at the 2001 Frankfurt Motor Show and 2001 Bologna Motor Show, replacing the R129. The R230 underwent revisions in 2006 and 2008 and was superseded by the new SL Class R231 in 2011. The SL600 is the highest output version of the non AMG SL Class models. It uses a V12 engine which produced 493bhp, thus making it a very rapid luxury sports car with 60mph achieved in just 3.6 seconds when tested by Car and Driver despite the factory stating the figure at more modest 4.7!
First registered 16th April 2004, this silky smooth S600 V12 is presented in metallic black with contrasting cream leather trim. With a low mileage and just three former keepers, the last service was provided by Lookers Mercedes-Benz in July 2021 (B service) and the MoT test certificate is valid until October 2022. These S600 Mercedes-Benz are rare and with this low mileage, it is described by the current owner as in fantastic condition throughout. The V12 engines on these 5.5 litre cars, coupled to the fantastic folding hardtop, make for incredible tourers and very practical while ferociously quick.
