Built in the last year of the R107’s production, this 300SL has covered just 17,578 miles from new in the hands of just two owners.
Supplied new by Jacksons of Guernsey on May 2nd 1989, this SL was specified in one of the most desirable colour schemes for the model – Diamond Blue metallic with Mushroom beige leather interior. The hardtop was ordered in contrasting Nautic Blue metallic matching the navy blue soft top.
In terms of optional equipment, leather upholstery, cruise control, rear seats and a fire extinguisher were specified.
The first owner covered just 16,000 miles during his 23-year ownership. In 2012 the car passed to its second owner who registered the car on the mainland. During their ownership the mileage increased to its current 17,578 miles. Always garaged and sparingly used, this is a car that has been treasured by both its keepers.
All original books & manuals come with this 300SL together with a full service history comprising of eight stamps (serviced every 2000 miles). We have just carried out a major service and fitted four new Michelin tyres.
Commensurate with its mileage, this SL is in incredible condition. The body and interior are unmarked, the hood original and superb, and the wheels are in perfect order, including the spare, that has never been used.
In summary, a last of the line 300SL with perfect colours, provenance, mileage and condition.
