1998 Mercedes SL600 V12, 58000 miles only, left hand drive

This is an excellent, low mileage example of the rare SL600 V12 R129 which we have taken in part exchange against our Bentley Arnage from a gentleman who owns a large international law firm.

The gentleman has a good collection of classic vehicles, this being the gentleman's holiday car and as such the car has spent the last 4 years in Cyprus at the gentleman's holiday home. The car is currently Cyprus registered however we have paid the UK import duty and would happily register the car for the buyer if the car is to remain in the UK.

The car has covered just 58,000 miles and was initially purchased by the gentleman in Florida in 2017 with 56633 miles. The gentleman is most meticulous and wanted to make sure the car was fault free before shipping to Cyprus so he had the car shipped to Germany for a detailed inspection and TUV test which is included in the cars history folder and extends to 13 pages detailing every aspect of the vehicle, German TUV tests are notoriously thorough ! At the same time the car was issued a Certificate of Conformity from Mercedes Benz which makes importing/exporting to any country far more straightforward. Since the gentleman's purchase the car has had approximately 4,000 Euros worth of service work carried out despite little use. The car also benefits from a recent new roof mechanism although the soft top itself is looking a little faded around the edges, probably due to the Cypriot sun.

On the road the car is fault free and drives exceptionally well, the 6 litre V12 engine is an absolute gem being silky smooth and offering tremendous performance whilst remaining totally effortless at all times. This engine has 394bhp on tap and is commonly regarded as the best engine Mercedes ever made, apparently they had fewer problems with this engine than any other. This model also benefits from Mercedes active air suspension with adaptive damping which transforms the car, the 600 is a very different prospect to the lesser SL models and very highly sought, this car would have been close to 100k new !

Finished in black with two tone black and dark grey leather upholstery and half wooden steering wheel, specification of the period to include digital climate control air conditioning, electric seats, heated seats, electric steering column adjustment, central locking, alarm, immobiliser, electric windows, electric mirrors, heated mirrors, cruise control, premium stereo with CD player, HID headlamps, multiple front and side airbags, electronic stability/traction control, 18 inch AMG alloy wheels etc. The factory hard top and wind deflector are with the car however the hard top stand is not present.

Low mileage examples of the SL600 are very hard to find !
