2003 Mercedes Benz SL500 (R230)

WITHDRAWN UNTIL THE SEPTEMBER SALE Superb four owner example in desirable Tanzanite Blue with grey leather and just 69,800 miles

Supplied new in April 2003 by Mercedes Benz of Swindon this attractive R230 series SL (Sports Lightweight) is finished in the desirable hue of Tansanite blue metallic with light grey leather interior and burr walnut trim. This model of course, features the clever folding metal roof which stores neatly away in part of the boot. Equipped with the powerful yet superbly refined 5.0 V8 which develops 306bhp it is driven through automatic transmission with Tiptronic option along with Sports or Comfort modes. The interior specification includes heated electric memory seats with adjustable lumbar, automatic lights, rain sensing wipers, Mercedes Comand navigation and in car entertainment, dual zone climate control with air con and on-board computer as well as cruise control, wind deflector, roll bar etc. As a higher spec model, it also features air suspension combined with ABC – active body control, allowing an adjustable ride height and stiffness at the touch of a button – very clever, very comfortable and/or sporty when needed. This lovely four owner example has covered just 69,800 miles and comes with a stamped service book showing eight stamps plus final inspection stamp. The last stamped service (with supporting invoice) was at 65,139 miles by Maundsell Performance Specialists of Oxfordshire in July 2018. However, since then, the car has had two annual health checks at our local, reputable MB specialist in Hereford. There are 2 keys, four old MOTs and in addition, the car will come with a fresh MOT in time for the sale which includes fitment of a replacement front strut. These cars love being used and are all the better for regular use, so get bidding and go and enjoy it, either roof up, or, at the touch of a button, roof down. Super.
