As January melted into February, and March now peaks over the horizon, the sales momentum that started 2021 shows no sign of abating.
The interest and enthusiasm in the market is very much present, with buyers eager to secure cars ready for warmer days.
Not only are we seeing a huge amount of activity on our phones and through email, but there is a marked increase in buyers seeking out the highest calibre cars.
Two cars that fall into this category are the 420SL and 500SL shown here.
The 420SL – The lowest mileage V8 in Europe?
Finished in Signal Red, this 1989 R107 420SL shows an incredible 1,507 miles from new. We aren’t aware of another V8 in Europe showing such low mileage. This car has been secured by an avid Mercedes-Benz enthusiast and connoisseur, staying in the United Kingdom despite interest from buyers across three different continents.
The 500SL – Second time lucky
In our last showroom update we spoke of cars that sell before the photographer arrives, and that’s exactly what happened with this 500SL. Having narrowly missed out on buying one of the finest SL’s built by SLSHOP some years ago; the new owner of this car was thrilled to read about an immaculate SLSHOP restored 5.0 litre car on our coming soon page. A number of phone calls later and the car was secured. This 500SL has a very interesting story, some of which is detailed in this article.
The 30,000 mile SL Club
As buyers clamour over cars, the very best examples with low mileage will always command a premium. They aren’t making more of these cars, and no amount of restoration can remove miles or years from the history of a classic car. Finding that low mileage example will always be a thrill for SLSHOP – there is something special about offering an SL for sale in 2021 that still has that ‘new car’ feel.
Our industry knowledge, position in the market and network of customers and clients makes SLSHOP the ultimate destination for all things SL. The fact that we continue to sell the very best cars in the current climate is testament to the faith that buyers have in SLSHOP, and the amount of work that we put in to prepare cars for our showroom. We have a database of customers who are always hunting for certain vehicles, and we work closely with our customers to match cars to clients. If you have a specific SL in mind, do contact Bruce – he might just have the very car you dream of.
