This distinctive and beautifully co-ordinated Designo SL is the only one we have ever seen in this colour scheme. It has an ultra-high specification, with virtually every available option included. The striking Ocean Blue metallic paint is perfectly matched to the Designo Ultramarine leather and the blue carbon fibre effect trim. All aspects of the car including paintwork, interior trim, soft top and wheels are in the best possible condition.
It was supplied new by Stirling Mercedes-Benz of Worcester in March 2000 and we think it was originally a dealer demonstrator. After that it has had a further three owners; the first in Manchester until 2003, the second in Bury St Edmunds until 2008 and the latest in Todmorden until now.
The car has mostly been serviced within the MB dealer network under the variable service interval regime. There are three stamps from MB dealers, two from independent MB specialists and one from a non-franchised garage. Everything is exactly as it should be to give evidence of careful ownership and maintenance. We have had it serviced by our independent MB specialist, so it is ready for a further 10,000 miles or more before any scheduled attention is due.
This is one of the last of the R129 SLs, with all of the later technical and specification upgrades, but being registered prior to March 2001 it is also early enough to qualify for lower rate, non-CO2 based road tax in the UK. As such it is already a very desirable and collectable vehicle, and the rare and beautiful Designo colour scheme makes it even more so. It is a delight to drive, with all controls taut and responsive as one would expect from the fastidious maintenance regime which has been followed. It has always been a second or third car in the household, garaged and sparingly used for high days and holidays, which explains its beautiful condition.
A full mechanical check has been carried out by our independent Mercedes-Benz specialist. Any faults found have been remedied, and any required maintenance has been carried out (see above). Invoices for this work will be supplied with the car, along with our own warranty, details of which can be supplied on request.
