2003 Mercedes-Benz SL500 (R230)
Appealing earlier R230 generation with the thumping 5.0 V8 and clever folding metal roof showing 93,330 miles; recent £3,500 spend on new air suspesion struts
Dating from March 2003 this earlier model R230 series SL500 features the powerful 5.0 V8 and has had five owners from new who have covered just over 93,330 miles in this folding metal roof convertible Merc.
The SL is finished in popular Tellur Silver and sits on standard 7 spoke 17inch wheels with grey Alpaca leather and burr walnut trim inside.
There is factory navigation via MB’s Comand system which also doubles as the radio/CD player. Further specification features include heated electric memory seats, automatic lights, rain sensing wipers, electric lumbar adjustment, cruise control with speed limit function, head lamp wash, dual zone climate control with A/C and adjustable air suspension with ABC.
Transmission is automatic with Tiptronic option and this example also features tinted windows for added privacy.
The history file includes the V5C, a selection of invoices including for historic servicing by both MB main dealers and others along with health check reports and 11 old MOTs.
Invoices of note include one for a replacement alternator in November 2015 at a cost of £465, and a major service including braking system consumables costing £896 by MB Wolverhampton in 2010.
More recently, our vendor spent £3,538 on two new air suspension struts and hose system in July 2021 plus a further £240 on a new master key in September 2020 from Mercedes Benz of Bath.
The car comes with an MOT valid until July 2023 with no advisories and is, as we understand, ready to be enjoyed.
