Description

VIN No. 10704412039258
Engine Type:  M117.985 V8

The Mercedes 450 SL version for the American market (California), first returned to Germany and, since 2008, registered in Italy where it has had 3 owners. It has covered 222,271 miles. Valid MOT until October 2022.
The US market was always the reference market for the prestigious SL, more than ⅔ of production was destined for the United States. The main features that distinguish it from the European one are the 4 round headlights, more prominent bumpers, air conditioning and better standard equipment. White with tan interior and hardtop. Bodywork repainted and interior in very good condition – dashboard Cap Cover Skin overlay. Carpet in perfect condition.
Mechanics in working order, always carefully followed over the years. Complete service performed in 2019 followed by oil and filter replacement in 2020. Very little use, but kept in working order and ready to use.
The American version of the beautiful SL R107, being more widely available, has very reasonable purchase prices and offers all the merits and exclusivity of the top Mercedes spider. The sound and the torque of the V8 are thrilling and the four-headlamp front gives the car its distinctive character. The hard top transforms the car into a comfortable coupe with elegant lines.
The Mercedes must be collected from the province of Pescara.
