Lot 043: Mercedes-Benz SL320

Classic & Vintage Cars & Motorcycles, Brightwells Auctioneers and Valuers (18 July 2012)

One of five 129 Series SL Mercedes in our sale today, this particular example has the 231bhp 18-valve SOHC V6 that was introduced to the range in 1998 and could launch the car to 60mph in around 8 seconds on its way to a top speed of 147mph. In fact the SL320 is rated the 'Best Buy' of the W129 range by What Car? magazine for its blend of performance, economy and ease of maintenance.

Being such a late model (year 2000) it benefits from all the minor upgrades that were added to the model throughout its 13 year lifespan. Finished in classic Mercedes silver with a mushroom leather interior, it is packed with all the luxuries you would expect including electric heated seats, cruise control, climate control, power hood plus steel hardtop and the desirable rear seat option.

It has had just four owners from new and has only covered some 56,000 miles to date with a full service history and was last serviced less than 1,000 miles ago. Said to drive beautifully and with an MOT until January next year, this lovely low mileage example is barely even run in yet and should give many years of pleasure to the lucky new owner.

Catalogue amendment; Please note the MOT expires in January 2013 and not June 2013 as previously stated.
