Footnotes

  • Mercedes-Benz revived one of its most famous model designations of all time when it introduced the new 300 SL in 1985. The 300 SL came with a single-overhead-camshaft engine that produced 188bhp;  the main engine gains over the superseded smaller motor being a useful increase in torque and a marked reduction in fuel consumption. Top speed is around 130mph. The car was the Mercedes 'flagship' model of the time and was fitted as standard with all the latest 'modern' equipment such as electric windows, buzzer alert for lights left on when the doors are opened, reeled safety belt and so on.

    This 300 SL Convertible is finished in white/blue with black/blue leather/cloth interior and has the automatic transmission option. It also enjoys the benefit of a professionally installed alarm/immobiliser (receipt available). The car has had only three owners and comes with Mercedes-Benz service history, including the service booklet, which is stamped from new, with mileage recorded. The June 2016, the Mercedes-Benz service indicated that there were no scratches, paintwork chips, rust, corrosion, or general faults. Kept garaged under a fitted cover, the car currently displays at total of only 49,750 miles on the odometer and is described by the private vendor as in very good condition throughout. This low-mileage Mercedes-Benz soft-top, with the original hard top in blue is offered with an original owner's manual, Blaupunkt radio instruction manual, MoT to June 2017, V5C Registration Certificates showing each of the three owners, and a quantity of expired MoTs confirming the mileage.
