2005 MERCEDES-BENZ SL 350 2DR CONVERTIBLE
Vintage and Prestige are proud to offer this 2005 Mercedes-Benz SL 350 2dr Convertible For Sale.
This very attractive R230 Series SL is one of the 3.7-litre SL 350 models and hails from 2005. It was originally supplied by Mercedes-Benz of Wolverhampton and has remained within the same family from new, since when it has covered a mere 14,300 miles. The Benz is finished in a pleasing shade of mid Metallic Green which is complemented by a Cream leather interior trim in brand new unmarked condition. The bodywork, paintwork, upholstery, V6 engine and automatic seven-speed transmission are all in AS NEW condition. Included in the sale is a Mercedes suit case, original book pack with service book, wind deflector and handbooks plus a collection of invoices and old MOTs. This car is in a time-warp condition & is in effect a brand new Mercedes.
The landmark 300 of 1954 and the ensuing 190 comprised the first generation of Mercedes-Benz's iconic SL models. The much loved second generation (W113) began with the 230 of 1963 and was distinguished by a distinctive optional hardtop that earned the model its nickname of `Pagoda top'.
The apparently everlasting, larger, third model (R107) was launched in 1971, initially with just a 3.5-litre engine mated to a four-speed automatic transmission. The fourth generation (R129 Series) was launched at the Geneva Salon of 1989. Based on a shortened version of the W124 floorpan, it was a beautifully-engineered car that bristled with technical refinement and innovative safety features.
The specification included independent suspension all round (double wishbone at the front and a contemporary five link system at the rear), adaptive damping, ventilated disc brakes with ABS, electronic stability control, a hidden roll-over bar that automatically extended when required, and front air bags. Next up was the R230 Series that was in production from 2001 to 2011 with a range of engines from a 3.7-litre 245bhp V6 to a thumping 6-litre V12 of no less than 604bhp. This newcomer was notable for its retractable hardtop, active body control and, on post-2004 versions, a new seven-speed automatic transmission.
