Description

Luxembourg registration - Careful maintenance - Very low mileage - A rising 'youngtimer'... This beautiful convertible series W107 is equipped with the most homogenous engine from the range, the 5-litre V8. It was sold new in Germany and from the first owner it was acquired by the current owner, a Luxembourger, and a great car enthusiast to whom we had sold a Lamborghini Miura S, a dozen-odd years ago. Very demanding, the owner couldn't stand the normal wear and tear of the car, so he send it to his Mercedes agent to replace with re-conditioned parts all the chrome bits, the rubber of the bumpers, the carpets, the leather and all the aesthetic details that has seen some wear after 80,000km of use. The gearbox and the rear axle have also been redone by Mercedes. This pristine 500 SL is now in an awesome condition, complete with its invoice file (about € 60,000!), its manuals and service booklets. On a test drive we found it running excellently, in absolute comfort of its nearly new black leather upholstery. With 91,000km from origin, this car has the qualities of a low mileage car, which was lucky to fall into the hands of a very attentive owner.
