Lot 128 - 2005 Mercedes-Benz SL500
|Sold - £6,832
With a 0-60mph time of six seconds, the 4973cc, R129 Mercedes-Benz SL500 carried on the tradition of the fast and reliable grand touring convertible. A fully operating electric hood, windows, door mirrors and seats made this model easy and comfortable to operate. The fifth generation SL was in production between 2002 and 2008 and featured the all-new retractable hardtop - an important feature for those British showers! Mercedes-Benz followers were impressed with the stability of the car with the hardtop in place and the ease at which they could remove it. Such was its success; the SL is still one of the leading cars in the Mercedes-Benz range. This car features the very capable 5.0 litre 302bhp V8 powerplant mated to a standard automatic gearbox.
Presented in black with cream leather trim, this SL500 was first registered 9th March 2005. Purchased from a main dealership by our vendor and owned ever since, this example has been well maintained. Showing 83,677 miles on the odometer it is fitted with a Sat Nav, electric front seats, active body control and a Bose sound system. The history files contain invoices, previous Mot records, the UK registration document and a MoT test certificate valid until December 2022.
The SL500 model is becoming increasingly sought after and this example is not to be overlooked. We are sure this well-presented Mercedes-Benz will be enjoyed by the new owner in the coming months!
