1997 SL320 Rare AMG kit. Amazing history. Drives great. For Sale

Mercedes SL320 1997. Rare factory bodied AMG. Amazing history. Not 500SL or 300SL Warranted 145,265 miles, impeccable service history (21 stamps) and receipts for additional work carried out. It has been serviced every year regardless of mileage. It has had an oil and filter less than 1000 miles ago, MOT’d till 24th April 2020. I have had major work done on the gearbox, plus new oil and filter, costing £700+. The gearbox now has a clean bill of health and super smooth changes. It has also just had the common SL320 oil leak from the front cylinder head cover seal done, including new cam cover gaskets (£500). Previously owned by a female doctor and her husband (also a doctor) before her. It cost her husband £40,000 on 21/06/2000 (have receipt). This couple owned the car for the last 17 years, from only 3 years old. In fact the husband traded in his old 1979 350sl for this. Azurite Blue with cream leather. It comes with the full AMG pack of front/rear bumpers, side sills costing close to £8,000 as an option.It now sits on later 5 spoke genuine 17" Mercedes alloys with 4 excellent matching tyres and does not come with the ones in the pictures. The alloys fill the arches nicely. I have reduced the price for swapping the alloys. This was a very well specced and extremely expensive car when it left the factory.

The legendary MB straight six 3.2 purrs quietly yet purposefully and drives absolutely beautifully without any knocks, bangs or rattles. The power steering gives you feedback at speed and effortless manoeuvre-ability in town. The auto gearbox changes up/down smoothly as the day it left the factory. This may have something to do with the fact that gearbox oil and filter has just been changed. Mercedes say that this gearbox is a sealed for life unit, but all the specialists/experts/forums say that the oil and filter should be changed every 40,000 miles, so this has another 40,000 miles at least till the next change. These were the last of the truly well-built bullet proof Mercedes before the tie up with Chrysler in 1999. The oil pressure is always on 3 bar right from start-up, everything works as it should, including the hard and soft top mechanism. The fabric is like new and the plastic screens are MB and in excellent condition, making me think that is has been replaced recently before my ownership. The hardtop is also in excellent condition. There are no warning lights illuminated on the dash. The car is very good inside and out, even without a valet. There are no dents, or major scuffs, but please expect to see some marks for a car of this age. The seats are all electric and in excellent condition, very supple and only showing very light signs of any wear. In summing up, this is a very rare factory AMG car. The body kit and alloys set it apart from other standard SL’s. It has MOT till May 2020. It has been really cherished by its’ previous owners, as shown by the service history and additional spending on it. That is why it looks, drives and behaves impeccably. The interior and exterior are in vgc condition for the age of the car. It only has one spot of bubbling on the front near side wing but nothing serious at all. I have the leather wallet folder containing the current red V5 in my wife’s name. All the books, manuals and documentation over the life of the car. I have the two original working keys/remotes. There is an original and complete tool kit, including the spanner to manually open/close the roof in an emergency. The boot also houses the wind deflector in its protective cover, warning triangle, first aid kit and a full size MB spare alloy wheel. This was a fairly rare car in its day but is now getting even rarer, especially with the AMG spec, try finding another one. The kit alone sells for about £3500, there's one on eBay now, (and that kit has damage on it). There are not many out there with this much history, specification and in this condition. Needs absolutely nothing doing for the foreseeable future, depending on usage probably for the next few years. These cars are increasing in value quite rapidly now. It has done less than 1500 miles in over two years, and 600 of those were in one week, where it performed impeccably. Whoever views and drives this car will buy it. It will give years of enjoyment while increasing in value. It turns heads and gets positive comments whenever I drive it. Recent work done as already mentioned means nothing needs doing in the foreseeable future. This is a genuine private sale, so serious enquiries only please. I am happy to discuss/talk further and entertain requests for more information and pictures. Thank you for taking the time to read the ad. I’m sure I’ve left lots of things out, please feel free to contact me for any specific information or pictures you may require
