Description

First registered on the 07/03/2003 and UK supplied in Brilliant Silver Metallic with grey leatherCivilised supercar performance sprinkled with some AMG magic dustAt launch, the 5.5-litre V8 engine propelled the car to 62mph in 4.2 secondsThe service book shows eightstamps, the majority of which are Mercedes-Benz main dealerExtensive spec from new to include AMG Styling Package front spoiler and side skirtAccompanied by all the book packs, older MOTs, service receipts and both keysPresented to auction with an MOT until 03/02/2021 and an odometer reading of some 25,600 (atoc)Introduced in 2002, after some five years in development, the R230 Series SL Roadster was an engineering 'tour de force'. Painstakingly modelled on a state-of-the-art supercomputer which enabled the designers to analyse every curve and line, it looked utterly sensational with an air of barely contained aggression that gave it huge road presence. Packed full of sophisticated electronic driver aids which made it immensely safe but also fun to drive, it was an instant hit with press and public alike and is widely considered to be the best-looking Mercedes for many years. The power-operated aluminium folding roof was particularly admired and would disappear into the top of the boot at the press of a button in just 16 seconds, yet still leave enough room underneath for 206 litres of luggage space. It was in 2003 that the stunning looking SL55 AMG version was introduced. Seriously powerful and massively fast, the 5.4-litre engine gave 476 BHP and a tree stump pulling 520lbs/ feet of torque!First registered on the 7th March 2003, thisSL is finished in Brilliant Silver Metallic with Grey leather and Designo Alcantara headlining. The options listin 2003 was packed full of state-of-the-art equipment and, it would appear in this case, most of the boxes had been ticked.The history file is rather well stocked for such a modern car and includes many main dealers receipts and a service history that includes five main dealer stamps with three specialist stamps. Showing an odometer reading of some 26,500 miles, at the time of cataloguing this car presents incredible value for money and still holds its own against modern Mercedes.You can now book a one to one appointment (up to one hour) to view this lot at our central location between the 16thand 30thJuly.
