Description

Guide price: £25000 - £30000. <ul><li>F1 Pace Car pack option featuring 19’’ AMG wheels, uprated suspension and brakes</li><li>Just 57,700 miles, useable modern classic with blistering performance ‘on tap’</li><li>Stunning Metallic Black paintwork, AMG embossed leather, Alcantara roof lining</li><li>Complete with book-pack and spare keys, to be offered with fresh MoT and service</li></ul><p> </p><p>The Mercedes-Benz 'R230' first appeared in 2001 at the Frankfurt Motor Show, but it was in 2003 that the seriously powerful and head-turningly good looking SL55 AMG version was introduced. Hugely impressive and seriously quick, the 5.4-litre engine produced 476 BHP and pulled 520lbs feet of torque!</p><p>The SL 55 AMG was further enhanced by an 'F1' Performance Package offering a host of impressive upgrades from standard specification. Closely derived from the official FIA Safety Car for 2002, the 'F1' pack included; lightweight, hollow spoke, 19" split-rim alloy wheels, an LSD, larger floating disc brakes and big callipers, uprated cooling, revised front grille, darker rear lights and increased power. This option came in at a cost of around £20,000 alone!</p><p>This particular SL55 AMG 'F1' was supplied new in June 2004, finished in Metallic Black with a full Black leather interior, including a rarely ordered Alcantara roof lining. Other options included a cooled centre glove box, pulse seats - heated and vented, a panoramic roof with retractable shade, 6 CD-changer, Sat Nav, Bose sound system and AMG over mats. On test, the car performed well offering a relentless surge of power when requested and reassuring braking power from the F1 pack upgraded braking set-up. The service record shows main agent attention all the way to 55,000 miles when an independent specialist took over. The folding roof is a remarkable piece of German engineering offers a secure hard-top panoramic roof and the option of open-air motoring when the weather permits, Supercar performance and still a comfortable fuss-free ride that only Mercedes seem to get just right.</p><p>This superb example is to be offered with a fresh service and new MoT, ready to be enjoyed. </p>
