Presented in Astral silver - a fine colour choice for any classic Mercedes - this 300SL is looking particularly elegant beneath our showroom lights. The paintwork presents superbly all round and all panels appear straight with good shut lines. A particularly low mileage R107, this later galvanised example retains a sharp appearance throughout with no signs of corrosion to be found in any of the usual places. All brightwork is in excellent condition.
The blue soft-top makes for a perfect colour combination against the silver paintwork and remains in pristine order, operating exactly as it should. The Astral Silver hardtop also presents impeccably, complementing the overall outstanding condition of the SL.
The interior space of the SL completely reflects the low mileage and pampered life this example has led. The blue leather seats both front and rear are in excellent condition, feeling soft and supple with no wear to the upholstery. Having been garaged throughout its life, the interior feels very fresh with no cracks to the dashboard or damage to the delicate wood centre console. Pleasingly the original Blaupunkt Toronto radio is still in place and fully operational, also accompanied by the original instruction booklets. The blue carpet and overmats remain in fine fettle throughout, as does the boot area containing the tool roll, jack, and spare wheel.
ENGINE AND TRANSMISSION
The Mercedes 3-litre straight-six engine produces 185hp and propels the SL to 62 mph in a respectable 9.6 seconds. Beneath the bonnet you’ll find a very presentable engine bay. Components and ancillaries maintain a fresh appearance and both inner wings are solid with no corrosion issues to be found. The 4-speed automatic gearbox features sport/economy modes and operates perfectly, feeling smooth pulling through the gears with ease. Most recently the SL has received a full inspection and fresh advisory-free MOT upon arrival at 4 Star.
WHEELS, TYRES AND BRAKES
The SL sits on its original 15-hole alloy wheels, all of which – including the centre caps – remain in excellent condition. The wheels are shod in a matching set of Michelin tyres showing plenty of tread remaining. The brakes perform well on test, pulling the car to a stop smoothly and without fuss.
This immaculate 300SL was first registered in August 1989 and was supplied through the Mercedes-Benz dealer Motox Ltd. The SL was initially registered by Motox Ltd prior to being sold to its first keeper, the Rgt Hon Maurice Robson, Managing Partner of Robson Rhodes accountants. It was then sold to its third keeper in 2003 at 9,093 miles before the current owner purchased it in 2006 at 24k miles.
The SL was serviced five times prior to the current owner, who has since had it serviced annually by marque specialists TJ O’Neill. Upon arrival at 4 Star the car was fully inspected and given a fresh advisory-free MOT. The History File is complete with the original Mercedes document pack containing all booklets and manuals as well as a spare key and valet key.
