Finished in rare and beautiful Aquamarine Blue, perfectly contrasted by Mushroom leather interior, this SL320 is an extremely elegant car.
Registered in 1998, it is one of the last of the straight six 320s, benefiting from the later (non-biodegradable) wiring harness, improved climate control and Mercedes’ superb five-speed automatic gearbox.
In addition to climate control, cruise control and power seats, this example is equipped with the highly desirable panoramic hardtop (giving a delightfully airy cabin even with the hardtop on), cup holders and half-wood steering wheel.
This SL has covered only 58,481 miles from new. Originally supplied to Jersey on 08/01/1998, it was registered on mainland Britain in 2003 and has had two owners since. It has a full and compete service history comprising of stamps in the service book and accompanying bills indicating that is has been maintained thoroughly throughout its life.
The book pack contains all original books/manuals, datacard, original order documents, along with all original tools, first aid kit and two keys and the original credit card key.
This SL is in lovely condition throughout. As the pictures show the bodywork is superb with no corrosion. The hardtop unmarked. The original diamond cut eight-hole alloy wheels wear a matching set of recent Michelin tyres. The spare has never been used. The interior is superb and extremely clean. The factory wind deflector is present and the original radio and carpet over-mats are still fitted.
Thanks to a combination of low mileage and careful maintenance this SL320 is a joy to drive with superb performance from its charismatic inline-six engine, seamless gear-changes and a very high level of refinement that these cars should possess.
In summary, a beautifully original and cared for SL with an unusually low mileage and in a strikingly attractive colour combination.
