1989 MERCEDES-BENZ 300SL
Registration Number: F647 JSS
Chassis Number: WDB107412A099388
When Mercedes redesigned its famed SL in 1971, there was a lot of equity behind it – after all, when the incomparable 300SL Coupe and Roadster were built fewer than 20 years before, they set the world on fire. The next-generation 230/250/280SL in 1963 brought Mercedes' sports car down to Earth, replacing both the incredible 300SL and four-cylinder 190SL.
For the next SL, Mercedes started with the chassis of the mid-size "W114/115" model and added motors from the large "W116" S-Class. The result was a luxurious convertible that ended up being the longest passenger car series ever produced by Mercedes to date. The SL remained a prized automotive status symbol and an iconic part of the brand's lineup, until it was finally replaced by the all-new fourth-generation SL in 1990.
This later 300SL is finished in the sought after colour combination of Blue/Black metallic with a biscuit leather interior. Unfortunately we do have earlier history for the car on file, however the current owner has entrusted well respected local specialist Classic Car Management to garage and maintain the SL on his behalf. A clean and tidy example, the SL is now being offered for sale purely due to lack of use. The Mercedes has received an MoT in July (with no advisories), and is offered with recent invoices, factory hardtop with stand, spare key, manual and UK V5C.
A stylish modern classic car which can be used and enjoyed come rain or shine.
