Beschreibung:

Mercedes-Benz have been producing an SL (Sport Leicht) model or range of models since 1954 when the landmark 300SL was unveiled. The similarly styled, but mechanically unrelated, 190 followed in 1955 completing the first generation of cars. The second generation SL's began with the 230 in 1963. It was distinguished by its lower waistline, big curved screens and a distinctive optional hardtop that earned the model its nickname of `pagoda top'. Over its nine years of production, the second generation SL's engine grew in capacity from 2.3 litres (230SL) to 2.5 litres (250SL) and finally to 2.8 litres (280SL). The larger, third generation SL was launched in 1971, initially with just a 3.5-litre engine (350SL) mated to four-speed automatic transmission. This stunning Mercedes-Benz 300SL was supplied new in Devon with a comprehensive options list including leather heated seats, orthopaedic driver's seat, cruise control, illuminated vanity mirrors and outside temperature gauge. Finished in Padgett red with matching factory hardtop and complemented by mushroom leather trim, this makes for a very elegant sports car. Supplied with a V5C registration document, an MoT test certificate which expires in August 2014, old MoT test certificates, a complete handbook and service book pack, a good history file which contains service invoices which show that the car had covered 83,900 miles in 2009 and has had £4,000 spent on the mechanics covering only 5,600 mile since. This is an opportunity to purchase a sought after 300SL in excellent condition throughout which has been looked after all of its life.
