A very nice but usable SL500 which has been well-cared for, including recent suspension fluid and filter changes as well as maintenance of the Active Body Control system. The paintwork is good with just some slight scuffs to the rear bumper corners, good 7-spoke alloys shod with Dunlop SP Sport tyres all round (plenty of tread remaining) and a very good interior with barely any wear to the driver’s seat bolster. She drives strongly with no untoward noises, positive steering and strong brakes. The leather and wood trimmed cockpit makes for a comfortable, luxurious place to be. With cruise control and both hands-free and privacy phone options along with the other standard and extra SL500 options provide for a very up-market driving experience.

Affordable entry into everyday sports convertible ownership with the prestige of M-B ownership and performance of a lovely, smooth 5-litre V8 producing 306bhp; as period road-testers stated: ‘sporty when you want it to be and luxurious when you don’t’!

Note: the personal registration will not be sold with the car.
