1996 MERCEDES-BENZ SL-CLASS SL500 - £28,995
It is not often you come across a Mercedes SL500 with just 25,000 miles on the clock, but here we have exactly that and if you want a low mileage example that is in pristine condition you are going to struggle to find a better example than this one. This car benefits from having the 5.0 V8 M119 spec 32 valve engine. The car has a full service history and has been clearly well looked after during its life. The Brilliant Silver paintwork is virtually blemish free as is the blue leather interior. The R129 cars have been under appreciated for a long time, but they are slowly coming into their own and low mileage, high spec examples such as will see their values move higher over the coming years in our view.
This car started life in Jersey which accounts for the low mileage and it wasn't until 2015 when it arrived on the mainland. The service history has been with either Mercedes main dealers or MB specialists. We have detailed the service history below. Given the high build quality and low mileage, this example has not needed a great deal done over the years apart from servicing and other routine maintenance.

Everything on the car works as it should including all electrics. The hood is in excellent condition as is the hard top which also comes with the car. The history file contains the MB wallet with the stamped up service book, driver's manual and other literature which came with the car when new. There are also invoices detailing all work and maintenance carried out during the car's life.
These machines are fantastic to drive and if looked after will go on forever. This is a rare opportunity to buy a very low mileage example which has the perfect provenance and remains in a condition close to how it left the showroom.
