This 1 owner German supplied SL has been pampered all its life only being driven in the dry and kept indoors in a private car collection. We have never seen an SL in such breathtaking condition, the paint work is excellent and free from any imperfections, the only sign of use are a couple of tiny stone chips behind the rear wheels. All of the chrome is factory fresh and the overall appearance of the car is like new. The only negative to point out is that the inner rubber door seal is getting a little dry but this could easily be replaced.

The car gets even better underneath and due to it life in a dry, warm climate the arches and underside look like new, perfectly free from rust and still white like the top side. The factory clear wax still protects theses areas and all the ancillaries show no signs of any surface corrosion. The car has clearly never seen a wet road. The original hood is still fitted and is in perfect condition with no wear and the hardtop is unmarked.

Open the door and that new car smell welcomes you giving a sensation that you're back in a Mercedes showroom in the 1980's. The leather is in incredible condition and remains soft and supple with no signs of any wear. The plastic trim retains its new matt finish without any signs of use or age. All of the carpets are factory fresh and protected with the original Mercedes over mats. Being a German spec'd car it is fitted with all the factory options including air conditioning (ice cold), heated leather seats and cruise control.

The boot area looks like it has never had anything inside it and under the carpet sits the unused spare wheel that still has the fitting instructions clipped to the valve cover.

The car has a full Mercedes service history showing light but regular use so as you would expect the car is in good mechanical order. Under the bonnet shows a perfectly detailed engine compartment still coated in its original wax, every nut and bolt is immaculate. Don't confuse this with a car that has been prepped, detailed and polished, the reason for this remarkable condition is due to the dry weather use and 1st class maintenance.

All of the alloys are unmarked and are all shod in matching Pirelli tyres that all have over 7mm of tread. The calipers still look new and the discs and pads show minimal wear.

The car has been in the hands of one careful owner from new . The original document pack is still with the car that contains all the owners manuals and most importantly the Mercedes service book. The book is fully stamped with a full Mercedes history and despite the low mileage there are 13 separate stamps.

The mileage is 46,579 kilometers which is the equivalent to 28,942 miles.
