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!This lovely, low mileage SL55AMGwas first registeredon 1-09-2006. It's finished in Iridium Silver with an Alpaca Greyleather interior andwas heavily spec'd from new including; Cruise Control, Parktronic, Voice Activation, Ventilated front seats, COMAND navigation, climate control. 18" AMG multi-spoke alloys, Bose sound system, CD-changer, Keyless-Go, Carbon trim and much more resulting in a purchase price of 89,113.12. We understand that it's third owner added the car to his extensive collection in September 2011 and it has been lightly used until recently. The service records indicate that it was serviced at 2,680, 5,993, 8,300, 13,247, 23,918 and most recently at 24,605 miles on 31-05-19, all by Mercedes-Benz dealers. Invoices detailing these A and B Services and any additional work carried out are in the history file alongsidethe V5c, previous details of Cherished Number transfers, older MOTs and the current MOT valid until 12-05-2021. The odometer currently reads 24,968 miles. The Mercedes-Benz book pack is complete and both sets of keys are there.This SL55 AMG presents really, really well and appears almost unmarked. The engine bay appears showroom fresh and the whole car has patently been looked after. Ballistically quick, fabulous looks, continent covering pace, yet as civilised in town as a Toyota Corolla, it's no wonder that some supercar owners tend to get a little upset.Lot No. 125 - 2006 Mercedes-Benz SL55 AMG (R230)https://youtu.be/Ilmrhfv30MItrue
