This 1 Owner SL 500 drives beautifully and is a credit to the gentleman Owner. The fact he has purchased an S500 after 15 years of ownership of this car shows a positive ownership experience. The 5.0 V8 has legendary reliability along with smooth, effortless power delivery. The 5 speed automatic is equally reliable with smooth changes and no issues. There are no warning lights on the dashboard after extended test drive. Premium Pirelli PZero tyres all round (rears were new at the service), another sign this SL has been maintained to the highest standard. The suspension works as it should and there are no signs of water ingress in the boot. Freshly serviced, ready to drive away and enjoy. Any inspection or test drive welcome.
Presented in signature Mercedes Brilliant Silver with cost option 18 inch alloy wheels and glass panoramic roof, this is a very attractive example that looks much newer and expensive than the reality. The bodywork is commensurate with a well maintained, 1 Owner example. There are no significant marks or damage to the bodywork including the bumpers. There are no large or excess stone chips to the front end or bonnet. There are no car park dents or corrosion bubbles visible on the body. The wheels are in excellent condition and very clean to the face and inner with no corrosion, ingrained dirt or marks at all to the outer edges. The twin exhaust pipes are clean and free of ingrained dirt. The door shuts and under the bonnet are all very clean. A very well maintained example that has never been left neglected or stood for long periods. Individual body panel and wheel pictures available on our website. HD Video walk around on request.
This SL has a beautiful and unusual interior environment with light Alpaca / Orion Grey Leather, Chestnut Wood and added light via glass panoramic roof. This example has never been smoked in (original lighter never used) or used to carry pets and there are no lingering smells. The leather seats are in excellent order with no ingrained dirt, dis-coloration or scuffing damage, even on drivers seat bolster. The carpets are in good order with minimal wear and no heal damage. The boot area is clean with space saver wheel present and correct with no signs of water ingress. The original medical kit is present.
Very rare to find a genuine 1 Owner SL 500 with lovely mileage and very desirable specification in this price range. Unbeatable Summer fun!
