1987 Silver Mercedes-Benz SL

Warwickshire , United Kingdom


Mercedes-Benz 500SL V8 (R107) #1992 Top Spec Heated Seats

Astral Silver (735) with Royal Blue Leather (272) and Dark Blue Fabric Soft Top (501)
Originally ordered in Belgium, this car spent time in Japan before being imported into the UK in the late 1990s.
The data card shows the order location as Belgium, however this car is Right Hand Drive with the original service book being in Japanese.
As a European car, this 500SL would have a speedometer in Kilometres fitted, not miles. On 25th April 2003 a UK correct speedometer was fitted.
The speedometer that was removed showed 74,196km, or 46,103 miles, as documented by an invoice from Mercedes-Benz Geenoaks of Reading.
Since fitment of the UK speedometer, this car has covered 25,783 miles, giving it a combined total mileage of 71,886 miles.
Present with this car is a comprehensive number of documents detailing care and spend, dating back to early 2000.
A well cared for, high specification car that has been known to The SL Shop for some years.
Boasting electronically adjustable and heated mirrors on both sides, full leather interior with rear seats and heated front seats, outside air temperature indicator, air conditioning, this would have been one very expensive SL back in 1987.
Air conditioning and heated seats are desirable options even by modern standards, so to have those fitted n 1987 must have felt like the pinnacle of motoring luxury!
A superbly cared for car that’s fully equipped for the next continental adventure.
