1994 Mercedes-Benz SL280

An exceptional example with just 22,000 miles from new; metallic silver with blue leather; just 4,000 miles over the last 14 years; driven to the sale; from a deceased estate

This 1994 SL280 was acquired by the previous owner in 2005 with around 19,000 miles on the clock. He used it for a few months before being badgered into selling it to his General Manager, who was to keep the car for high days and holidays.

During the next 15 years, a mere 3,000 miles were added, the car being kept in a modern garage when not in use. He put his private plate on the car (L60 RLL) which is also included in the sale along with a car cover in the boot.

Prior to his ownership, it had regular servicing with eight stamps plus a PDI. The car remains in the condition one would expect of a 22,000 mile car and was driven to the sale some 30 miles.

The only blemishes on a otherwise very sunny landscape are the non working electric drivers seat, a problem with the driver's window mechanism and some cracking to the tyres - all issues put down to lack of recent use. It could also do with a new sound insulation pad under the bonnet.

With those items attended to, its new owner will own one of the finest R129s in the country
