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!

 Originally registered on 29th November 2004 this SL55 AMG is finished in the delightful colour combination of Designo Silver with Light Beige interior. This Mercedes-Benz comes with the original service books and a history folder, the last service was carried out by Mercedes-Benz in Oxford in June 2022. Presenting in delightful condition, this has clearly been a very well cared for example, we are advised it drives with no known faults and the hood operates exactly as it should. Supplied with a V5 registration document and a full years MoT test certificate, 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.
