This beautifully presented Mercedes Benz 500SL was supplied new by Simpsons of Bexley, who later became Sparshatt Jones Ltd. This car has an exceptional service history and has now covered 99000 miles from new. The cars first two services were carried out by Mercedes Benz dealerships Sparshatt Jones Ltd and Haxted Motor Co Ltd of Kent. The Mercedes was then maintained by Stuart Graham Ltd of Cheshire at 18040, 22524 and 31484 miles. The next service was carried out by Liverpool Mercedes Benz dealership Road Range Ltd at 37853 miles and Stuart Graham Ltd once again serviced the car, this time at 49038, 54400, 57776, 63670, 66935, 68982, 72388 and in 2000, at 75734 miles. Three services were then carried out by Mercedes Benz dealership Newgate Motors at 79272, 80411 and 82928 miles. MB Motors of Chesterfield serviced the car at 85537 miles and the service book is full and stamped at 94315 miles when Batley Prestige Centre serviced the car in 2007. The superb service history is also supported by MOT certificates dating back to 1988. A large invoice file also accompanies the car detailing the cars service history and maintenance. The earliest service invoice we have is from 1988. We have invoices throughout the 1990's up to date and more recent improvements include a new hood in 2007 when the vehicle was valued for insurance purposes at £15,000. The Mercedes also comes with original owners manual and factory hard top.
BNZ 8862 presents and drives superbly. The car has superb, clean and straight bodywork with lovely silver paintwork. Wheel arches are exceptionally clean and the 500SL does appear a very well kept car. The hard top is in very good order and the soft top hood still relatively new. This upholstery appears very original and is in good order. The original grey leather shows little wear and carpets are well presented. From the impressive, expensive service record it is no surprise the vehicle has been kept in smart, clean condition. The 500SL drives superbly with fabulous performance. The 500SL is a fantastic model and is an ideal car for long distance touring. The reliable, robust Mercedes automatic gearbox is strong with perfect changes and has no issues. BNZ 8862 has been in regular use over the summer and as the previous owner lives in France over the winter months, the car is now surplus to requirements and offered onto the market.
