Mercedes 500SL roadster – 1 owner
1988E – 24500 miles – Signal Red



The bodywork is flawless, the interior is unmarked and extremely fresh in its appearance…exactly what you would expect from a one owner example with such low mileage. Every aspect of the car is genuinely in tip tip top condition, making it sure to be a contender in any Mercedes or classic show.

The softop is completely original and in excellent condition as is the original hard top; even the engine bay is as clean as the day it left the factory. Rather than use a transporter to bring the car back to our premises, I couldn`t resist the opportunity to drive the car just over 250 miles and as expected it performed without fault. A really rare opportunity to own and enjoy one of the lowest mileage examples available, and sure to provide many more years of motoring pleasure to the next owner.

Service History

The car has recently been mechanically recommissioned at great expense by the well respected SL Shop. The car has come from an estate, and the search for the original service book is ongoing. However, a very close friend of the owner has confirmed that the mileage on the car was predominantly covered in the first five years of ownership when it was serviced at the supplying main dealer where he worked. In the early 2000`s the owner asked this friend to store the car and to carry out any maintenance that might be required. A small amount of mileage was covered between 2006 and the current day, whcih is confirmed by the MOT certificates.
