Description

Guide price: £45000 - £55000. <ul><li>Formerly the property of The Sultan of Brunei Royal Family</li><li>Just 10,981 km from new</li><li>Freshly serviced by Mercedes Lancaster Southend</li><li>UK import taxes paid</li></ul><div><br /></div><div><br /></div><div>From an established lineage of beautiful Mercedes-Benz SLs, the R129 range was introduced in 1989 and continued the company's tradition of fast and reliable 'grand touring' convertibles. Joining the range in 1993 the 600SL was naturally the flagship and featured the company's ultra-smooth, 6.0-litre V12 engine that generated an impressive 389bhp. The SL600 was a fuss-free, fully equipped, luxury sports car that was more expensive, and quicker (!) than the Ferrari 348 of the day.</div><div><br /></div><div>Finished in 'triple-black', this right-hand drive SL was formerly the property of the Sultan of Brunei Royal Family. This V12 has certainly not been overworked during the last 25 years with an odometer reading of 10,981km (6,863 miles), indeed the service book shows that from its PDI in June 1993 to its service in April 1997 it had covered just 332km.</div><div><br /></div><div>The NOVA documentation shows that the car was imported into the UK in January 2018 and UK Registration has been applied for and hopefully will be completed prior to the sale. A full service was carried out in June 2018 by Mercedes Lancaster Southend and the MoT expires in January 2019.<br /></div><div><br /></div><div>The SL600 is a rare car and encapsulates pure Mercedes-Benz V12 engineering from the nineties. With its Royal connections and a mileage that any collector would be drawn to, this classic SL may well be a shrewd investment.<br />.<br /></div>
