This delightful car was first inspected by Lancaster Europa on 28th March 1988, ordered new in the fantastic shade of Blue Black Metallic over Beige Leather. The metallic paintwork and leather interior were expensive options, and the first owner equipped the car with cruise control and the factory paint preservation, on top of the list price of £32,750… a total of £33,631 or around £88,000 when adjusted to today’s money. This was a very expensive car for it’s time.

Lancaster Europa cared for the car throughout the first 5 years and 25,000 miles of this cars life, before a combination of independent specialists and Mercedes-Benz dealers took over the maintenance of the car until 2013.

First arriving at SLSHOP to be prepared for sale, the car went through a comprehensive service and check over when it was sold by us to the current owner almost a decade ago. Now that the current owner is looking to move onto automotive pastures new, we are proud to offer this beautiful SL for sale once more. Serviced by us for the last three stamps in the book, we can attest that this car is of the finest calibre, and a rare thing to find being a 300SL in the desirable and smart shade of Blue Black.

Present with the car is a comprehensive service history file, including the leather wallet with book packs and service book, the contents of which are detailed below. A significant pile of paperwork is also present in the folder, dating back to when the car was new – testament to many years of careful ownership.

This car has been used and enjoyed sparingly and diligently since 1988, and represents an excellent chance to buy one of the finest motorcars of this era. From the well built, over-engineered solidity to the finish of the chrome, that big iconic steering wheel and the way that straight six engine sings through the gears, this is a car to behold and in which to indulge. They don’t make them like they used to, and this one is really rather lovely.

Condition:

This Mercedes-Benz has been hand-picked by SLSHOP’s sales team due to its high calibre status. Every inch of this vehicle’s exterior, interior and mechanicals have been inspected by SLSHOP’s workshops to ensure the vehicle meets our world leading standards. While every effort has been made to offer pristine vehicles, there will be some age-related marks, unless otherwise stated.
