1990 Mercedes-Benz 500 SL Convertible
Registration no. H901 XYO
Chassis no. WDB1290662F018054

In 1989 Mercedes-Benz retired its classic Type 107 bodyshell that had been used for a succession of beautiful sports roadsters for almost the preceding 20 years, replacing it with an equally appealing, sleek new design in the modern idiom. This new Type 129 body style was used for three different engine types: 6.0-litre V12, 5.0-litre V8, and 3.0-litre straight six. As installed in the 500 SL, the fuel-injected, 32-valve V8 produced 326bhp and offered stupendous performance, delivering a 0-100km/h (0-62mph) time of 6.2 seconds and a top speed of 250km/h (155mph). As one might expect, these new SL luxury sports cars were designed to be world leaders in their class and were lavishly equipped in the best Mercedes-Benz tradition.

This beautiful 500 SL has covered a little over 66,000 miles from new and was last serviced only a few miles ago. The accompanying service history is comprehensive, consisting of the stamped service book and invoices dating back to when the car was new. Described by the private vendor as in generally excellent condition in all respects, 'H901 XYO' benefits from new AMG wheels; new tyres; new brake callipers, discs, and pads; and new suspension coil springs all round. The car is offered with MoT to June 2020, a V5C Registration Certificate, an owner's handbook, and a spare master key.
