Ordered new from Normand Mercedes-Benz LTD (Mayfair) on 27th July 1989, this rare Midnight Blue 300SL has covered just 46,000 miles in 31 years.
It isn’t just the colour that makes this car so unique – this might just be the highest specification 300SL that has ever visited SLSHOP.
The optional extras included with this car include Air Bag, Air Conditioning, Cruise Control, Headlamp Wash Wipe, Seat Heaters for Front Seats, Leather Seating, Rear Seats, Orthopaedic Front Seat Backrest, Outside Air Temp Gauge, Becker Mexico, Sump Shield and Theft Warning Device…. Indeed the only optional extras that this car dismissing other than Metallic Paint is a Tow Bar…!
These options would have given the car a ‘new’ equivalent price in today’s money of £103,261.44. We enjoy calculating the equivalent price in today’s money when we write these car descriptions, and it’s not often that a car tips over the £100,000 point. If anyone has a higher specification 300SL, we’d love to hear about it.
A detailed box file accompanies the car, complete with a photocopy of the original invoice from the supplying dealer. The documentation for this car would satisfy even the most fastidious librarian, with every piece of paper present since the car was new.
Amongst the wide array of documents and receipts are three interesting sheets, dealing the story of the early years for this car. On 4th June 1990 a TVR 450 SEAC was part exchanged against this 300SL, with the owner keeping it until 1992 when it was once again sold by the same dealer. This time a BMW 535i was part exchanged, with this owner enjoying the car until it was sold again, with another Mercedes-Benz 300SL taken in part exchange. Throughout this time the paperwork was always kept in impeccable order.
This is a fantastic opportunity to get into a very unusual 300SL, a car that will always be a talking point. The future owner of this car rest safe in the knowledge that there really is no other 300SL out there that is quite like it…
