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.

Originally registered on 20th September 2005 this Mercedes-Benz presents beautifully in dark blue with light grey leather interior. Clearly this has been a well looked after SL500 which is confirmed by a very good service history, the first part of which was by main dealers and latterly by specialists. We are informed GY55 UFV drives well with no known faults. These R230 Mercedes SL500’s are very well equipped cars with electric memory seats, heated seats, cruise control and air conditioning all standard features. The 4966cc V8 engine offers brisk performance by any standard and this example is offered for sale with a V5C registration document and a current MoT test certificate valid until 31st August 2024. The SL500 model is becoming increasingly sought after and this example is not to be overlooked. We are sure this well-presented example will be enjoyed by the new owner in the coming months!
