I think this must be one of the last opportunities to purchase what is, in effect, a new SL280. Our car is a 2002 Mercedes-Benz SL280 with Panoramic Hardtop, which has covered a warranted and correct 16k Miles from new. The condition is as new, unrepeatable, and the car drives perfectly, as you would imagine. It is finished in Brilliant Silver, with Black Nappa Leather, and has the Panoramic Roof, Black Soft Top, 18" AMG Alloy Wheels, Rear Seats, Air Conditioning and Heated Seats. The Perfect Specification.
In 1989, Mercedes-Benz retired its classic Type 107 bodyshell that had been used for a succession of beautiful sports roadsters for almost the preceding 20 years, replacing it with an equally appealing, sleek new design in the modern idiom. This new Type 129 body style was used -initially - for three different engine types: 6.0-litre V12, 5.0-litre V8 and a 3.0-litre straight six that was available in 12- and 24-valve versions in the 300SL. In 1992 the 300SL was, in effect, replaced by two new 24-valve models - the SL280 and SL320 - powered by 193bhp 2.8- and 231bhp 3.2-litre sixes respectively, the latter boasting a 0-100km/h (62mph) time of 8.4 seconds and top speed of 150mph.
As one might expect, these new SL luxury sports cars were designed to be world leaders in their class and lavishly equipped in the best Mercedes-Benz tradition. Various options were available from new including Nappa leather-upholstered interior featuring heated front seats, leather-covered steering wheel/gearshift and walnut or chestnut wood trim, while incorporating the very latest in automotive technology
Our car was registered in March 2002, so is one of the very last 129 series cars made, has had 3 owners from new and has a Full History, all book and manuals and is absollutely as it left the factory, including the clear tape on the Sills. It comes with many old MOT's, invoices, toolkit, First Aid Kit etc. We have never seen a 129 in this condition with this mileage, In fact 60k is considered very low for one of these SL's as they were bought to use, 16k is unrepeatable. When this sells, there is not another one even close to this mileage and condition. Summer is just around the corner!
