Appealing earlier R230 with thumping 5.0 V8; extensive spec inc adj.
air suspension, radar guided cruise control, fan assisted heated seats showing
just 48,735 miles
Supplied new by Mercedes-Benz Western Automobile Company of Edinburgh in April 2002, this pretty R230 generation of SL comes to us in desirable SL500 guise, finished in Telluride Silver and sits on its original 18” five-spoke AMG alloy wheels.
Under the bonnet, we find the 5.0 litre V8 engine which develops 302Bhp and 460NM of torque driving the rear wheels via five-speed 5-Gtronic automatic/tiptronic transmission.
Inside the well appointed cockpit we find grey perforated leather seats with fan assisted heated seats, multi-adjustable lumbar and Pulse (massage) function, memory facility, radar guided cruise control, cruise control, adjustable ABC air suspension, electric folding mirrors, electric windows, half-timbered multi-function steering wheel, on-board computer, automatic xenon lights with headlamp wash, COMAND navigation and in-car entertainment with CD changer, dual zone climate control with AC, parking sensors, electronic stability control, phone cradle, wind deflector and of course the clever folding metal roof with heated glass rear screen.
The car shows just 48,735 miles and presents beautifully, starting promptly and running well as we moved it around for these shots with no warning lights present.
The history file includes the V5C revealing five former keepers to our vendor, the owner’s pack with many handbooks, the service book which records six stamps, the last in March 2020 at 44,202 miles by NRT Motors a Bentley specialist in Corse Lawn, Gloucestershire.
In addition, we also find the current MOT, valid until July 2023 with no advisories recorded.
Ready to enjoy this looks like a smart, low mileage and well optioned earlier example of the popular R230 series SL500 on offer for sensible money. Bidders please note, the car was recorded Category S in September 2021.
