1995 MERCEDES-BENZ SL60 AMG (R129) For Sale by Auction

To be offered at the Silverstone Classic Auction on Saturday 27th July in The Wing building at the Silverstone Circuit, NN12 8TN. Viewing is available from 9am on Friday 26th July and the morning of the sale day. For further images and information please click on the lot listing link to get in touch with classic car specialist Guy Lees-Milne of Silverstone Auctions. Estimate: £45,000 - £55,000 +buyer's premium of 15% including VAT @ 20% Offered at No Reserve, from the Property of a Gentleman -This UK-supplied, SL60 AMG was undoubtedly the flagship of the R129 range -Finished in the unusual SL60 colour of Imperial Red with Mushroom leather -One of 49 right-hand drive cars and, at 14,000 miles, possibly the lowest mileage SL60 available -Part of a private collection since 2016 and remains in exceptional condition Launched 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 History: 24/07/2002 - 8,000 mile service at M-B Cheltenham @ 8,778 miles 25/09/2006 - 12,000 mile service M-B Cheltenham @ 10,384 miles 01/11/2007 - 18,000 mile service M-B Cheltenham @ 10,697 miles 30/04/2009 - 24,000 mile service M-B Cheltenham at 10,798 miles 24/06/2015 - Recommission, service and bill of health by SL Shop, Redditch @ 11,257 miles MOTs: 20/07/2006 - 10,346 miles 13/07/2007 - 10,492 miles 02/10/2008 - 10,758 miles 24/06/2015 - 11,257 miles 18/08/2016 - 13447 miles 30/04/2019 - 13,458 miles
