Finished in the desirable colour combination of Azurite Blue with Orion Grey Exclusive Leather interior and contrasting black soft top, this last of the line R129 SL320 is in truly exceptional condition having covered just 38,099 miles from new.
Equipped with rear seats, heated front seats, climate control, cruise control, five-spoke alloy wheels and the desirable option of extended leather covering the dashboard and door cards.
Supplied new in March 2000 by Carols of Wolverhampton to its first owner, then to its second by Mercedes main agent, Rycroft of Oxford, in 2003. The car’s third owner acquired it in 2013, and, like the previous keepers, cherished the SL as a high day and holiday car – used sparingly but frequently and always garaged.
This SL comes with all original books/manuals, two remote keys and a Full Service History comprising of eight stamps from Mercedes main agents and specialists. We have just carried out the last ‘B service’ at 38,088 miles this April.
Accompanying the service book, the history file contains a raft of supporting invoices and every previous MOT. A Mercedes-Benz health check was recently carried out, which it past with no advisories. HPI clear, with certificate.
In terms of condition, this SL320 is simply superb, commensurate with its very low mileage and careful use. Its original paintwork is unmarked, the hood original and excellent, the five spoke alloys are shod with matching Continental tyres and the spare is unused accompanied by the correct tool kit.
The interior is, as the pictures show, in quite exceptional condition. The Walnut trim is dark and glossy, the soft Nappa leather superb and the carpets are unmarked together with the original over mats.
On the road this SL320 drives exactly as you’d imagine such a low mileage, well-maintained SL would – taut, refined and a joy to drive. The 3.2-litre V6 engine offers fantastic performance, coupled with a 5-speed automatic gearbox that travels through the gears seamlessly.
In summary, a beautiful late model, low mileage example in one of the most desirable colour combinations. Perfect history and just serviced by ourselves, this SL is ready for the approaching summer weather.
