1999 Mercedes Benz SL280

A Mercedes SL has always had the caché of the ultimate open


ideal car in which to travel, for superb style, quality, and comfort. It’s a car than can cross continents and it’s a car than can cover those huge mileages and still leave you feeling refreshed at the end of the journey.

This Silver SL280 is the baby of the range. Engines vary right up to  6.0 Litre V12, with huge performance to match. But this 280 is no slouch. It’s fitted with the later V6 2.8 engine, and this power unit revs so freely. It performs superbly, and of course being far lighter than its larger engined brethren it feels a lot more nimble too, in fact it makes the bigger engined models feel very nose heavy.

This SL was registered in 1999, and it’s only had 4 owners in total. It’s finished in Bright Silver Metallic and comes with Black leather interior. There is an electric convertible roof, and also a matching hard top. It is in simply stunning condition. It will be hard to find a better one anywhere.

The car comes with fully stamped service book. All services have been completed by Mercedes Benz Dealerships.

The mileage on the car now shows 73600, but it feels like it should read 20,000 miles. It’s probably the nicest of this model we have ever seen. The air conditioning has just been serviced and the wheels are simply stunning, they have just been refurbished AND the rims have been polished as they would have been when new, and they look amazing. Tyres haven’t been on long either.

It’s fitted with a 10 stack CD changer, and also has the wind deflector for those breezy days when you don’t care to have a draft on your neck.

You might have always promised yourself an SL with a larger engine. But this one is a sheer joy. And it’s got the potential to offer you 25mpg in the right hands, and maybe even 30 on a longer journey.
