Delivered new by Reliance of Chingford on 6th May 1986 to a local owner. The car changed hands a few times early in its early life to owners all residing in the London area, all of which is documented in the vehicles extensive history file history. The last owner, a lady also from London, purchased it in 2007 and when she relocated to the Cotswolds in 2014 took her beloved SL with her. The original service history book is present and backed up by a most comprehensive history file. This contains old MOT certificates dating back to the very first in 1989, service invoices and old tax discs. A very desirable flagship V8 R107 finished in a most desirable colour combination.
Description Smooth and powerful, this example of the R107 SL is the flagship of the range, the 5 litre M117 engined 500SL. Finished in Signal red with half sports check beige interior, this is a very iconic colourway for this model. With a fabulously low mileage of 59k, the car drives beautifully. Deceptively swift yet maturely quiet, this car could be used every day. Fitted with personalised touches such as a custom sound system, this car has the creature comforts to make any cross continental trip a pleasure. She is ready to use as is or could be further improved to increase her status to one of the very best out there. The spec is right and the mileage so low, this is a very good investment opportunity that can be enjoyed immediately. This 4 former keeper 1985 R107 500SL presents an excellent opportunity to acquire an exceptionally low mileage car, whose acquisition should yield good future returns with further investment, not easy to find another example of this spec or condition with less than 60k at this price point, not to be missed.
