This is a really lovely version of the highly underrated and supremely usable Mercedes Benz R109 series fitted with the best engine choice of a 5.0 liter 32 valve V8. Being a 1995 car it is the last of the pre-face lift models with the superior build quality. It has only had 4 careful owners and covered a reasonable 99700 miles. The last owner had the car for 8 years clocking up just over 1000 miles a year of summer only use with the car being professionally stored during winter months.
The car comes with the usual SL refinements; aluminium hard top and stand, full light grey leather interior with rear child seats, wind deflector and climate control that blows ice cold. Plus factory options; electric memory heated seats, wood and leather steering wheel and the”Exquisite” Stereo upgrade c/w factory CD stack changer in the boot.
The hood is in excellent condition with recently replaced plastic windows carried out by a Mercedes Trim specialist using Mercedes specification materials. The electro-mechanical functioning of the soft top is spot on following a full overhaul a few years ago.
There is lots of paperwork with the car including all manuals and codes and a service history that all supports the view that this is a well looked after and cherished car.
I have been using the car for a couple of weeks and I am amazed how well it drives and how enjoyable it is with the top down with the effortless V8 power always available.
Reduced to £9450, must sell to fund other projects
