THE SALEDerek is looking to sell his 2001 Mercedes 280SL that he has owned for the last 9 years, having been cared for so well by him.This car is for sale with a guide price of £5,000 to £7,000 - hence the middle £5,995 listed here.If you're interested in the car then please get in touch with us directly to negotiate a deal or wait for the auction on our website.You can visit the link below to see over hundreds images and a video, detailing the car meticulously:https://www.tradeclassics.com/auctions/mercedes/2001-mercedes-sl-280/OUR CLIENTDerek has owned the car for 9 years and loved every minute of its smooth ride and seamless handling. He has looked after the car actioning anything whenever needed, and has used an independent Mercedes specialist for all MOT's and servicing.Derek has had the power steering and transmission pipework all changed using Mercedes parts at a cost of over £1000 (Receipts included in the paperwork). He has also renewed the tyres and a corroded fuel pipe. Derek now believes the time is right to find the car a new owner.THE EXTERIORThe overall exterior of the car is presented in very good order and has been cared for by Derek. Set in the Mercedes Pearl Metallic silver, the new owner will feel proud about owning the vehicle. Please see all the photos Derek has taken showing all angles of the exterior.Wheels & TyresAs mentioned Derek has replaced the tyres around 5 years ago which still hold a good tread on the roads. The wheels appear in a condition that is fair of the car's mileage.BodyworkAs you would expect from a car cared for by an owner of 9 years, the Mercedes shows no signs of damage and wear.PaintThe silver paint appears to be in fine condition across the car as you can see in the photos.Glass and TrimBoth are in excellent condition with only minor wear and tear on the interior and the soft top plastic windows corresponding with the car's mileage.THE INTERIORThe interior of the car looks especially clean and is a testament to the ownership of Derek. With notable comforting features you usually get in the Mercedes such as the wooden trim and luxury seats, all you have to do is turn on the ignition and enjoy this automatic experience straight away.Seats and CarpetsThe Napa leather seats appear in fantastic condition for an almost 20-year-old car and have been kept well with no signs of rips or tears. The same can be said for the carpets too.DashboardThe dials in the dashboard appear very clean whilst the centre console is also in good condition.Steering Wheel / Gear StickBoth are in excellent condition with no issues.MECHANICSDerek has comfortably used the car as a daily driver for some time and has been happy with the reliability of the mechanical parts. Mercedes always srtive on reliability and this 280SL is no different. The car came with loads of new features being the last of the R129 model, most notably, the "Tip-Start" feature. Once the key is turned, the engine cranks on its own until it catches and starts.Engine and GearboxThe engine is a solid M112 V6 engine that is very reliable. To deal with the vibration problems of a 90 degree V6, a balancer shaft was installed in the engine block between the cylinder banks. This essentially eliminated first and second order vibration problems providing a much smoother ride for the owner.Suspension and BrakesDerek assures us that the integrity of the smoothness and safety of the vehicle has been maintained throughout its life.Electrics and OtherAs of 1995, all Mercedes SL-class models came with Bose stereo and speakers as standard. The dials look to function well and Derek assures us that everything is in working order. The automatic soft-top roof is in perfect working order as can be seen in the exterior video.HISTORYBefore buying the car in 2010, this car has had 6 previous owners prior to Derek. From what we know, the car has had a service every two years on average.Please note, Derek is willing to let the personalised number plate go with the car as part of the sale.MOT & Service History01.03.2003 -- 1,85405.05.2005 -- 7,40412.06.2006 -- 9,28517.12.2009 -- 57,91325.11.2011 -- 68,49414.08.2013 -- 78,86510.07.2014 -- 91,84913.01.2016 -- 104.50025.01.2018 -- 114,863HPi Check Results-- HPi clear -- available on request.
