This is a truly stunning Mercedes Benz 300SL that has covered just 41,000 miles from new and comes with a full service history containing fourteen service stamps of which twelve are Mercedes Benz main dealer services. The car was supplied new by Continental Cars (Cardiff) Ltd in Signal Red on the 1st August 1986. The supplying dealer maintained the car up to 2000 at 27000 miles and the car has had just three owners from new. The most recent main dealer Mercedes Benz service was carried out at 32000 miles in 2009 and more recently in early 2016 the Mercedes was subject of £13000 of work carried out by a South East based Classic Car dealership. As a result of the exceptional lifetime maintenance and recent light refurbishment work, this SL is truly magnificent and has come to us driving and presenting superbly with an excellent history file including original service book, manuals, factory build card, 19 MOT certificates and invoices adding to in the region of £20,000.
The £13000 of expenditure in early 2016 included renewing the braking system with new discs, pads, calipers and sensors all round. Five new Dunlop tyres were also fitted to the car and the front suspension fully rebuilt. All give flat faced alloy wheels were re-furbished and the engine bay detailed. The Mercedes was also fully serviced and just a few hundred miles have been completed since. As a result of the recent works the Mercedes Benz has come to us in excellent mechanical order. The car is outstanding to drive offering comfort, luxury and performance. Having only covered 41,000 miles the engine and gearbox are in excellent order and having had the recent re-commissioning work and continued excellent maintenance schedule, the car is simply first class to drive. The car is absoloutley ideal for long distance touring with the benefit of modern performance mixed with a true classic iconic shape. This is a car that can tour Europe without hesitation and has the benefit of an excellent mohair soft top and lightly used original hard top. The hard top is in excellent order as we doubt this SL hasn't seen much winter use.
D3 SBG has an exceptional sharp bodysell with stunning deep Signal Red paintwork. The car presents beautifully with a first class finish, gleaming chrome, perfect alloys and crystal clear lights. The SL has clearly been garaged for the majority of its life and this is evident when looking around the car. The interior is fabulous with stunning leather upholstery, excellent carpets, door cards and dashboard. The interior is commensurate with a low mileage car and it would be fair to say the trim could be mistaken for a one or two year old car, it really is immaculate. This 300SL really does have everything with low mileage, excellent history, tools, hard top and of course the fabulous condition throughout. This really is a special car and low mileage examples are in high demand. The private registration mark is included within the price.
