To be offered for sale by Silverstone Auctions at The Silverstone Classic Sale 2019 to be held at The Wing Building, Silverstone Circuit, United Kingdom, NN12 8TN from July 26, 2019 to July 28, 2019. Guide price: £45000 - £55000. This UK-supplied, SL60 AMG was undoubtedly the flagship of the R129 rangeFinished in the unusual SL60 colour of Imperial Red with Mushroom leatherOne of 49 right-hand drive cars and, at 14,000 miles, possibly the lowest mileage SL60 availablePart of a private collection since 2016 and remains in exceptional conditionLaunched in 1989, the R129-series continued the SL dynasty from Mercedes-Benz, a ‘Sport Lightweight' family which began in 1954 with the legendary 300SL Roadster and ‘Gullwing', and has survived into its 6th generation with the current R231-series.Traditionally the most sporting model of the MB line-up, the SL was the preserve of the rich and famous when new. From the hypnotic dance of the electric hood mechanism to the roll bar that automatically flipped up if the car sensed an accident, the SL oozed sophistication with all the latest technology such as adaptive suspension with active damping, airbags, traction control, air con and a superb new five-link rear suspension all as standard.The Mercedes-Benz SL60 was the short-number production AMG variant SL deemed, at the time, to be the flagship of the range. Its enormously powerful and ultra-smooth 6-litre V8 engine delivered ferocious performance which could be enjoyed from the luxury cabin for which Mercedes-Benz is renowned. This example is particularly special being, possibly, the lowest mileage SL60 on the market, and one of just 49 right-hand drive cars produced.Our car was delivered new to Sir Christopher Evans, OBE, the respected Welsh biotechnology entrepreneur who was sufficiently successful to be able to indulge himself in the finer things in life, one of which was his cossetted SL60. During his ownership from 1995 to just 3 years ago, his SL carried the registration ‘CR 1S' and such is the condition of this car today, it was clearly lovingly cared for. It was purchased from our auction at Salon Prive in 2016 and has resided since then as part of a private collection.With just 14,000 miles recorded from new, the condition of this car is exceptional, appearing to be almost showroom fresh. It has been enjoyed by one owner after Sir Christopher and has been serviced three times during its warranted 14,000 miles. Offered in the unusual SL60 colour of Imperial Red with Mushroom leather interior, the car appears faultless as the pictures plainly evidence.Costing more than £105,000 when new and delivering close to 410 bhp with an (unlimited) top speed of more than 185mph, this is a remarkable piece of engineering excellence. To blend such incredible performance with predictable handling and a sumptuous, electronics-packed, leather-bound cabin is a feat that was only achieved by Mercedes-Benz in the nineties. Now revered as a bona fide ‘future classic', the evidence of the appeal of the very 'best of breed', low-mileage cars is unmistakable, and accordingly, we believe this car represents serious value at today's guide price. A rare opportunity.Service - details above - 8,000 mile service at M-B Cheltenham @ 8,778 miles25/09/2006 - 12,000 mile service M-B Cheltenham @ 10,384 miles01/11/2007 - 18,000 mile service M-B Cheltenham @ 10,697 miles30/04/2009 - 24,000 mile service M-B Cheltenham at 10,798 miles24/06/2015 - Recommission, service and bill of health by SL Shop, Redditch @ 11,257 - details above - 10,346 miles13/07/2007 - 10,492 miles02/10/2008 - 10,758 miles24/06/2015 - 11,257 miles18/08/2016 - 13447 miles30/04/2019 - 13,458 miles
