Vehicle Description

Stratton Motor Company are proud to offer this stunning 1989 Mercedes-Benz 300SL Automatic in this beautiful and hard to find Almandine Red and only 95701 miles on the clock.

Mercedes-Benz revived one of its most famous model designations of all time when it introduced the new 300 SL in 1985. However, on this occasion the newcomer was not a thinly disguised sports racer but the latest in a noble line of six-cylinder luxury Gran Turismos stretching back to the 230 SL of 1963.

When the original Type 113 bodyshell finally bowed out on the 280 SL in 1971, it was replaced by the V8-engined Type 107, and there would not be a six-cylinder model in the range for a further nine years, an omission rectified in 1980 with the launch of the new 280 SL.

The latter used the same twin-overhead-camshaft unit as the other ‘280’ models, and with 185bhp on tap was good for a top speed of 127mph. When the 300 SL took over in 1985 it came with a single-cam engine that produced a mere 3 horsepower more at the top end, the main gains over the superseded smaller motor being a useful increase in torque and a marked reduction in fuel consumption.

This 1989 Mercedes-Benz 300SL Automatic is finished in Almandine Red exterior paint with a light grey leather interior.

It also boasts a very hard to find red piped heated seats and also comes with cruise control.

The Mercedes is also equipped with a Black retractable roof and to go with that for the winter months a colour coded hard top.

With this Mercedes comes a very comprehensive service book with 17 stamps in with the last service being carried out on the 13/5/2019 with 95701 miles on the clock.

In the last 13 years this Mercedes has covered just 13,000 miles and has been owned by the same owner for 22 years.

It is in fantastic condition throughout and has even been a previous concours winner as well as featuring in the Mercedes Enthusiasts Magazine in September 2005.
