Lot '74: Mercedes-Benz SL280
One of three W129 Series Mercedes convertibles in our sale today, this is the most economical model in the range with the 2.8-litre 24-valve double overhead cam straight-six engine. Still a potent machine, it produced 194bhp and could reach 60mph in 9.4 seconds on its way to a top speed of 140mph. It also had all the sophisticated engineering and interior luxuries as its larger-engined stable mates and, of course, that wonderful electrically operated soft top.
First registered in January 1994 this particular car has covered around 100,300 miles from new and has seven service stamps in the service book to date, the last less than 2,000 miles ago. Silver with a grey leather interior, it also comes with eight old MOTs and is currently MOTd until April 2011.
