This stunning late Mercedes Benz 300SL was first registered on the 25th March 1988 and was supplied new in Champagne to a titled Lady owner based in South West London. The 300L stayed with its first lady owner for nine years, changing hands in 1997 and heading to North Yorkshire where it has spent ten years with its second owner. This low ownership SL has covered just 86000 miles from new and had a brand new Mercedes Benz engine fitted in 2003 at 63436 miles.
