1999 Mercedes Benz SL 280 Auto



1999 Mercedes Benz SL 280 Auto

The vendor kindly informs us of the following:

First registered in June 1999, this SL280 has covered 94,000 miles with a good service history comprising five stamps in the book up to 85,401 miles in 2014 with many supporting invoices.

It has had six owners in all, the current keeper acquiring it in 2015 from a gentleman who had owned it for nine years and had it waxoiled four times during his ownership, hence the good state of preservation today.

In 2008 he also had a Prins LPG system installed by Motorgas Conversions with a 68-litre tank neatly installed under the boot floor (so no loss of luggage space) and filled via a flap inside the figure 8 on the rear number plate which is so unobtrusive you would never find It if we didn’t point it out!

Looking most attractive in dark blue metallic with a beige Nappa hide interior, it rides on smart 18” alloy shod with 235/40/18 front and 275/40/18 rear tyres that give it a most purposeful stance. The power soft top operates as it should but there is no hard top.

Supplied with all its original handbooks, a spare key and key card, 12 old MOT’s. It looks a million dollars but should only cost a few cents to run thanks to the economy of the LPG system.

Please do carry out your own checks on the mileages.

On-site now for viewing.
