EXTERIOR

This SL55 AMG is a real feast for the eyes, a significant GT with stunning styling and unique presence at the curb or on the move. The SL’s exterior is a smart combination of Tanzanite Blue Metallic paint with subtle silver accents and 18" turbine alloys resulting in a subtle and sophisticated look to the sports GT.

The deep blue paintwork presents very well with a lustful shine thanks to the prominent metallic flake, free from any noteworthy blemishes or signs of corrosion. Surrounding trim and glass also sit in good condition, with no major imperfections to note beyond some minor fading to the drivers side silver blades.

INTERIOR

Opulence is an understatement when it comes to describing the interior of this SL. The cabin is a professional affair; a typical combination of Mercedes luxury and efficiency with the latest at the time in technology and AMG performance upgrades. The grey leather comfort seats perfectly contrast the blue exterior and feature power adjustments, heat, ventilation, and an active lumbar massage system, whilst the folding hard top also features an optional panoramic glass section to give the cabin a bright and open feel.

Further amenities in the SL55 include a premium Bose surround sound system, navigation, front and rear parking sensors and keyless go.

ENGINE

The SL55's supercharged 5.4L power plant fires up with a reverberating V8 rumble after ignition, producing an impressive 493bhp it manages 0-60mph in just 4.7 seconds and goes on to a limited top speed of 155mph.

Suiting the character of the long-legged V8 the 5-speed automatic gearbox provides wonderfully smooth shifts, and can also be operated using paddle-shift that is located on the steering column for faster changes.

Having been freshly serviced and used sparingly throughout its time on the road, this SL 55 wants for nothing and sits in excellent mechanical order.

WHEELS

Furthering the focus of this SL the 18” AMG Turbine Alloys are unmarked and show no signs of curbing, they are wrapped in Michelin Pilot Sport 3's with good even tread all around.

Brakes all appear in good order with pads and discs showing no signs of lipping or wear. The SL's ABC suspension suits the character of the car and allows a comfortable ride at slow speeds yet has the ability to stiffen for help in faster sections.

HISTORY

First registered on 02/07/2002 this beautiful SL55 was particularly well specified by the first owner and has remained within the same family to this day. Finished in a stunning shade of Tanzanite Blue Metallic with options including comfort seats and a panoramic glass folding hard top.

Servicing has been carried out by a combination of main dealers and specialists on a mileage basis with 8 stamps in the original service book, the most recent of which was carried out on 19/08/2021 at 34,022 miles.

Comprehensive MOT history is available with the car and shows much of the mileage was covered in its early life, with less than 10k miles traveled since 2011.

A full leather bound book pack is present including a stamped service book, and a spare key.
