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 for three different engine types: 6.0-litre V12, 5.0-litre V8 and 3.0-litre straight six. As installed in the 500SL, the fuel-injected, 32-valve V8 produced 326bhp and delivered stupendous performance, delivering a 0-100km/h (62mph) time of 6.2 seconds and a top speed of 156mph. As one might expect, these new SL luxury sports cars were designed to be world leaders in their class and were lavishly equipped in the best Mercedes-Benz tradition.

    This 500 SL Convertible was first registered in January 1992 and sold via Drake & Fletcher Ltd of Maidstone, Kent. The car was purchased by the late owner in 1994 via Lancaster's of Bow, London E3 for £59,000 at 7,880 miles and was serviced regularly by Rivervale of Brighton up to 2006 (stamps in service book). The current odometer reading is now circa 55,000 miles. Finished in blue/black metallic with cream hide interior trim, this modern soft-top Mercedes-Benz requires a little tender loving care and is offered with an original owner's wallet/and all handbooks.
