Footnotes

  • In 1989, Mercedes-Benz retired its classic Type 107 bodyshell that had been used for a succession of beautiful sports roadsters for almost the preceding 20 years, replacing it with an equally appealing, sleek new design in the modern idiom. This new Type 129 body style was used -initially - for three different engine types: 6.0-litre V12, 5.0-litre V8 and a 3.0-litre straight six that was available in 12- and 24-valve versions in the 300SL. In 1992 the 300SL was, in effect, replaced by two new 24-valve models - the SL280 and SL320 - powered by 193bhp 2.8- and 231bhp 3.2-litre sixes respectively, the latter boasting a 0-100km/h (62mph) time of 8.4 seconds and top speed of 150mph.

    As one might expect, these new SL luxury sports cars were designed to be world leaders in their class and lavishly equipped in the best Mercedes-Benz tradition. Various options were available from new including Nappa leather-upholstered interior featuring heated front seats, leather-covered steering wheel/gearshift and walnut or chestnut wood trim, while incorporating the very latest in automotive technology.

    As well as being electrically adjustable, the front seats, mirrors and steering column also 'remembered' settings, allowing several customised driving positions, interchangeable at the push of a button. Far too extensive to list here, the SL's generous equipment list included anti-lock brakes, power-assisted steering, acceleration skid control (ASR), electronic stability programme (ESP), driver/passenger air bags, automatic climate control, five-speed electronic automatic transmission, cruise control and Mercedes-Benz Security System (MBSS).

    Representing outstandingly good value, this stylish and attractive SL280 comes with Mercedes-Benz service history confirming the recorded mileage of circa 65,000. Taxed until the end of March 2013 and MoT'd to 17th May, the car is finished in Ruby Red with beige interior, the latter featuring an Alpine stereo system, and comes complete with a most practical panoramic hardtop costing £2,600 when new. Accompanying documentation includes a quantity of service bills, assorted expired MoTs and Swansea V5C document. We are advised that the electrically operated convertible hood is in good order.
