Mercedes SL (R230) SL 500 2002
A superb 2002 Mercedes SL500, 96k in metallic blue with excellent condition blue leather interior.
Shame we've had nothing but time-wasters via emails. Nobody has even seen the car yet!
This car was bought for my wife to use as a long-distance commuter, keeping the miles off her 997. It’s been with us for two years, and has been simply perfect. Everything works, the folding roof, air suspension, electric seats, climate control, cruise control - everything. Complete with a fully stamped history and a ring binder of invoices it has been properly cared for throughout its life by all three previous owners, and continued under our ownership.
There are a few small stone chips as might be expected on a vehicle of this age, but in general it’s immaculate inside and out. The folding wind deflector has a tiny hole in the mesh but otherwise works perfectly, the roof raises and lowers smoothly and quickly. Inside the original Mercedes overmats are installed and in good condition. The alloys are superb, and fitted with very good Pirelli tyres, plus an unused folding space-saver in the boot.
It drives superbly - incredibly comfortable, it will take you to the south of France with ease…
Comes with two keys, all the original handbooks and manuals, front and rear park distance, COMAND, SatNav.
The secondary battery in the boot is new, supplying power to all the non-essential equipment, with the starter battery in the engine bay firing the V8 up every time, even after standing for a month. Which brings us to why this is for sale - with the Covid-19 lockdown, my wife has no need for the long daily commute any more, and it’s just not being used. Her Targa is instead, and so it’s time for someone else to enjoy this cracking ‘best of both worlds’ coupe/open top GT over the summer and beyond. A set of winter tyres on another set of alloys are also available, and at the asking price will come with the car…
