From its launch in 1971, the SL soon became the standard all other Grand convertible touring cars aspired to.

By the end of production in 1989, there had been very few major changes just mild developments and enhancements.

This beautiful Signal red example was one of the last produced and has been pampered from day one with regular servicing carried out including recent work at the SL Shop.

She has perfect cream beige leather seats, factory air conditioning and fitted rear seat.

The original handbooks, service books and years of information are in the history file which has every service invoice from 1989 to present.

She feels and smells like a true 80s Mercedes and confirms the reputation of one of the worlds greatest car manufacturers.

The hard and soft tops are in great condition and these 1980s SL’s look very similar to the original 1960’s pagoda icon at a fraction of the price.

On the road, she is a fine GT tourer with a lusty performance from the torquey engine allied to the smooth four-speed auto gearbox.

You could set off and tour the South of France tomorrow in style and guarantee you would get there with utmost reliability.

Supplied fully inspected, serviced and with a comprehensive 12-month warranty.
