First put into circulation on 4 May 1988, this car has belonged to Mercedes-Benz France from new. In its original bright red livery (reference 568), the car is presented in superb condition, and has been repainted in the past. The passenger compartment is immaculate, with its wood finish console, leather-clad steering wheel and black leather upholstery showing only the slightest signs of use. There is an air-conditioning system and the dashboard is fitted with a Becker Grand Prix radio. The black mats are in good condition, as is the Alpaca hood. The car is fully equipped and includes height adjustable driver's seat, central armrest and electric windows. It also comes with the precious hard-top. The engine compartment is very tidy, and houses the powerful V8 5-litre engine, which, mated to an automatic gearbox, gives the car a top speed of 230 km/h.
Fresh out of an important service in 2017 (invoices of over 2500 euro), the odometer now shows 69 267 km. The car comes with several documents including the original order, the service book stamped between 11 May 1988 to 3 May 2004, maintenance booklet, ""Originalteile-Katalog 2001"" Type 107, the maintenance file that is complete from new and an inspection report from 2015.
