We are delighted to offer this beautifully presented, low mileage Mercedes Benz 500SL onto the market. Finished in the highly desirable rare colour of Anthracite Grey, this is one of the very late R107 models that feature the more powerful 242bhp engine and improved handling thanks to the revised front suspension. Without doubt, this one of the best SL models of a range that spanned an impressive eighteen years. This example has covered just 70,000 miles and has had just two owners from new and comes with the desirable rear seats option, retains beautiful full Grey leather upholstery, excellent soft top and factory hard top.
The 500SL spent its first 26 years with one owner in the North West, supplied new out of Liverpool to Lancashire based owners. Over the first ten years of ownership, the Mercedes Benz covered little over 43,000 miles and from 1999 to 2009 mileage slowed down, only covering 16000 miles. From 2009 to 2015, the SL only covered 600 miles and sold to its second owner in Hale, Cheshire with 59800 miles, clearly being sold due to lack of use.
From 2015 to 2019 the second owner has thoroughly enjoyed the car, covering over 10,000 miles in four years. The SL has been used for some classic shows, the summer office commute into Manchester and general weekend use. The car has been incredibly well maintained with invoices totalling over £4000 and include regular servicing, a new stainless-steel exhaust system and new rear brake discs and pads.
F425 PNC has arrived with us in lovely condition throughout. On close inspection its clear to see the SL has led a sheltered life and has spent much of its time well garaged and carefully stored. The car presents beautifully with a lovely deep Grey paint finish, the bodywork is generally in excellent order and the Grey leather upholstery is lovely throughout fitting with its low mileage of 70,000. Alloy wheels are in excellent order, the engine bay and boot area is well presented and on the road the car does not disappoint. Performance from the 5.0 V8 engine and four speed automatic transmission are excellent, it cruises, holds the road and handles perfectly and there is no doubt, these iconic long distance luxury open top tourers offer power, performance, comfort, class and will continue to be in high demand.
This car has been entrusted to Investor Classics to restore to former glory. The car belonged to a prominent family and the partner of the previous owner wished for it to be restored to near new levels.....
