Signal Red (568) with Beige Leather (255) with Dark Brown Fabric Soft Top (8023)
This lovely early style 500SL is enjoyed the iconic colour of Signal Red with a Beige Leather interior, the colour synonymous with the R107 SL.
It was purchased new in Poole, Dorset and enjoyed by the first owner for just a year, before moving to long term ownership with the second keeper. For 14 years the car remained in Dorset, until the year 2000.
In the year 2000 the car was purchased by a new keeper, who chose to move the car to a holiday home in France. Although never officially exported, between the years 2000 and 2014 this car spent most of it’s time at the holiday home of a British owner in Southern France. This is proven by documentation on file, with French service and maintenance records covering this period.
This car then found a new and loving owner in the form of The SL Shop, arriving at SLSHOP HQ to join the hire fleet.
Since purchase the SLSHOP hire fleet has disbanded, meaning this super car is available for sale. When it comes to buying cars for our own personal use, we choose on specification, provenance, drivability and reliability. This is a lovely example of an early 500SL, being a ‘late early’ car.
Equipped with lightweight Bundt style alloy wheels from new, this is a fine looking car with a very interesting specification. Heated seats, rear seats, cruise control and air conditioning make it the perfect tourer for warm or cold climates.
Just four owners from new, two of which cared for the car for more than 14 years each.
1st owner until 20th June 1986
2nd owner until 13th April 2000 (14 years)
3rd owner until 10th June 2014 (14 years
4th owner until 21st May 2019 (5 years)
5th owner until present
