The Mercedes-Benz SL class has been manufactured since 1954. The designation SL derives from the German 'Sport Leicht' or 'Sport Light' and was first applied to the 300SL 'Gullwing,' named after the upward-opening doors. The term SL-Class refers to the marketing variations of the vehicle, including the numerous engine configurations spanning five design generations. The Mercedes-Benz R107 and C107 cars were produced from 1971 through to 1989, being the second longest single series ever produced by Mercedes-Benz after the G-Class. The R107 took the chassis components of the mid-size W114 model and mated them to the larger engines from the S-Class (W116) and has become a benchmark of quality throughout the years. With only 11,650 miles recorded, this 1986 example has to be perhaps the lowest mileage SL on the market today. As one would expect with such low miles, the condition of the car is described as being excellent in respect of the engine, interior, chassis and transmission. This original righthand drive example is finished in the desirable colour scheme of Smoke Silver metallic with a contrasting black hide interior and fitted with air conditioning. The factory hardtop is suppl
The CL65 AMG represents a marriage between Satan, AMG and Jeremy Clarkson. It is a beautifully packaged and ridiculous collection of power, sumptuous comfort and noise, but to fully understand this motorcar, it is important to acquaint oneself with a fact or two. According to the UK Sales figures, just 35-40 CL65s were officially sold in Great Britain between 2004 and 2005 and in fact only 777 were produced worldwide, with pre-existing customers invited to purchase. It houses the same engine as the Maybach 57 and 62 'S' models, until you also learn that it is the same layout as fitted to the current Pagani Huayra supercar and that is very shouty indeed. There is 1,000nm of torque produced from the engine, detuned from 1,200nm in order to protect the gearbox. It pushes out 603bhp and costs, in Germany, €204,000 or £142,453.20 in this country, to be precise. The last example of this car we offered last year was heavily oversubscribed and so we are delighted to be able to present this very clean example. With six former keepers and full Mercedes-Benz service history (bar one), interested parties will be comforted to know that the active body control (ABC) pump was replaced at 42,000 m
In July 1998, the W220 was introduced and, as with each new S-Class, it brought in innovations such as Airmatic air suspension and Active Ventilated Seats (which used miniature fans in the seats to move air through perforations). A navigation system with centre console-mounted screen display was introduced along with the COMAND input control system. Other options included keyless entry and ignition, a radar-controlled Distronic cruise control system and a cylinder shut-off system called Active Cylinder Control. The S65 AMG was introduced in 2003 and went on sale in 2004 as a 2005 model. Powered by a 6.0 L 612bhp, V12 twin turbo engine, the S65 was the most powerful S-Class, as well as the world's most powerful production saloon car. The S65 had a 0 to 60mph time of 4.2 seconds which was a conservative Mercedes-Benz estimate compared to owner-tested times of 3.8 seconds; the S65 could reach 100mph under 9 seconds. This early S65 was first registered in April 2004 and has since had four previous keepers. Costing a whopping £142,000 new, this S65 is suitably 'loaded' with many extras including exclusive Nappa leather, infrared protective side and rear glass, heater and ventilated fron
The Mercedes-Benz R129 models were produced from 1989 through to 2001 and were sold under the SL-Class model name before being replaced by the R230 in 2001. The R129 was based on the shortened floorpan of the Mercedes-Benz W124 saloon and featured many innovative details for the time. The fifth generation of the legendary SL series of two-door convertible sports cars featured a fully retractable hardtop that was marketed as the Vario Roof; a first for the SL class, although it had been available on the smaller SLK model since 1997. The flagship models were built by AMG in the form of the SL55 (a 5.4 litre supercharged engine) with each engine individually hand assembled and signed by the technician. The F1 package enhanced an already formidable weapon, denoted by the term, '030 AMG Performance Pack' in the build specification, there are many pretenders out there but without '030' in history, walk away. The package includes the AMG Limited Slip Differential, AMG Compound Braking System, AMG Track-Calibrated Suspension (stiffer springs), alcantara headlining and a top speed of 186mph. This lovely 2005 model in Obsidian Black with grey AMG premium leather is highly sought-after, havin
The Mercedes-Benz Type 300 was the company's largest and most-prestigious models throughout the 1950s. The Type 300 cars were elegant, exclusive and expensive. The 300 models were touring cars, often referred to as Adenauer's after Konrad Adenauer, the first Chancellor of the Federal Republic of Germany, in office from 1949 to 1963; he employed six different versions during his tenure. These large saloons and four-door cabriolets featured many luxury features. Options such as Becker radio, VHF mobile telephone and dictation machine were geared to the business man and politician. Introduced in August 1957, the 300D was the linear successor to the 300C, with a longer wheelbase, fuel injection and unique hardtop configuration transforming it into a pillarless phaeton. The additional 4" of wheelbase provided greater rear legroom and established the car as a true limousine in direct competition with the Rolls-Royce Silver Cloud. Removable rear quarter lights allowed an unobstructed view in and out from the front vent window on back, much valued in the model's popular role as 'parade car'. Employing a slightly detuned version of the 300SL sports car's Bosch fuel injected engine, the 300D
The Mercedes-Benz W113 roadsters, designed by Paul Bracq, were produced from 1963 through to 1971. All models boast an inline six-cylinder engine with multi-port fuel injection with rear-wheel drive but are also equipped with independent rear suspension; a feature that greatly improved road handling. Most of these early SL's were sold with both the removable hard-top and a soft-top in the so called 'Coupé/Roadster' configuration. The 230 SL made a remarkable debut at the prestigious Geneva Motor Show in March 1963, where Nallinger introduced it as follows: 'It was our aim to create a very safe and fast sports car with high performance which, despite its sports characteristics, provides a very high degree of travelling comfort.' This highly desirable 250 SL with automatic gearbox is in superb condition throughout as you would expect from a fully restored example. To begin with, the body has been completely sand-blasted then a process added to prevent any future corrosion. The body has then been painted in the correct and original factory colour. The floor-pans and sills were replaced and the boot area renovated. A new windscreen has been fitted and 70% of the rubber seals are new. T
Introduced early in 1971, this impressive two-seater sports car replaced the 280SL. The body and chassis of the 3rd generation SL were considerably heavier and longer than its predecessor, but still showed a slight resemblance to them. The front and rear axles were similar to those of the 200-250 models, with independent wheel suspension using double wishbones and anti-dive control at the front and a diagonal swing axle at the rear; four-speed automatic transmission was available as an option. The 3.5 litre, V8 engine underwent slight modifications to those being used on other models and the gear shift lever was placed on the floor in the centre of the car. The standard transmission provided a top speed of 130mph and a very respectable 0-62mph in 8.8 seconds. As with the previous generation SL's, the vehicle came as an open roadster with removable hard top roof. The R107 body shape went on to become one of the longest running styles from Mercedes-Benz, remaining in production until 1989 with some 13 variants during that period. This superb 380 SL was originally registered on 15 th September 1980 and is finished in Birchwood green with matching half leather interior. Our test drive
Mercedes-Benz have been producing an SL (Sport Leicht) model or range of models since 1954. The similarly styled but mechanically unrelated 190 followed in 1955, completing the first generation of cars. The second generation SL's began with the 230 in 1963. It was distinguished by its lower waistline, big curved screens and a distinctive optional hardtop that earned the model its nickname of `pagoda top'. Over its nine years of production, the second generation SL's engine grew in capacity from 2.3 litre (230SL) to 2.5 litre (250SL) and finally to a 2.8 litre (280SL). The larger, third generation SL was launched in 1971, initially with just a 3.5-litre engine (350SL) mated to four-speed automatic transmission. The car featured a two-door monocoque body shell with independent suspension all round, coil springs and anti-roll bar at the front, semi-trailing arms, coil springs and anti-roll bar at the rear. The power assisted steering was Daimler-Benz's own re-circulating ball system. Over its seventeen-year reign, the R107 range was powered by no less than eight different engines - two sizes of straight-six unit and six versions of 90-degree V8 including the three litre straight six w
The Mercedes-Benz R129 models were produced from 1989 through to 2001 and sold under the SL-Class model names. The R129 replaced the R107 SL-Class in 1989 and was subsequently replaced by the R 230 in 2001.The R129 was based on the shortened floorpan of the Mercedes-Benz W 124 saloon and featured many innovative details for the time. The R129 came to public attention in 1991 when Diana, Princess of Wales, sold her Jaguar XJS to lease a J-registration, metallic-red 500 SL, becoming the first member of the Royal Family to use a foreign car. This controversy sparked a media storm as it was questioned whether a member of British Royalty should drive a foreign car. The fifth generation of the legendary SL series, made by Mercedes-Benz, was known as the R230. It featured a fully retractable hardtop that was marketed as the Vario Roof- a first for the SL class although it had been available on the smaller SLK model since 1997. Originally registered on 22 nd April 1980, this Mercedes-Benz presents in very good order having had only five previous keepers during its 36 years on the road. The penultimate keeper owning her for 17 years and the current vendor has enjoyed SGC 826V since 2009. Th
With the debut of the BMW M3 Sport Evolution, Mercedes-Benz' direct competitor, it became obvious that the 2.5-16 needed a boost for the circuit. In March 1989, the 190 E 2.5-16 Evolution debuted at the Geneva Auto Show. The Evo I, as it came to be called, had a new spoiler and wider wheel arches. Many changes were made to under-the-skin components such as brakes and suspension. There was a full SLS suspension allowing vehicle ride height to be adjusted from an interior switch. Only 502 units of the Evolution model were produced for homologation in compliance with DTM rules. For those customers desiring even more performance, a Powerpack option, engineered by AMG, was available for DM18,000 with a net result of an additional 30bhp. In March 1990, at the Geneva Auto Show, the 190 E 2.5-16 Evolution II was shown. With the success of the first Evolution model, this model's 502-unit production was already sold before it was unveiled. The 'Evo II' included the AMG Powerpack fitted to the same short-stroke 2.5 litre engine as the Evolution, as well as a full SLS suspension allowing vehicle ride height to be adjusted from an interior switch. An obvious modification to the Evolution II is
The W 114 coupé heralded a completely new range of cars for Mercedes-Benz. Unlike everything else on offer, this did not take any previous elements from the standard 180 from the 1950's. A new designer was brought in, Paul Bracq, who penned a pure and uncluttered motorcar. The roofline came down and the seats lowered to maintain headroom. The pillars were removed and all four windows wound down completely out of sight. The engine was a 2.5 litre, fuel injected unit with Bosch Jetronic injection delivering 148bhp and propelling this model up to a perfectly respectable 115mph, especially in those days. TRW 801J was originally registered in 1971 and was owned by a Mr. J. A. France. Having only covered 47,663 miles, on 3rd April 1975, this car was sadly stolen until some four years later; it was discovered with no damage but the keys missing. The car was then purchased by Mr. George Bain of Baldock from the insurance underwriter, General Accident. A replacement registration document was applied for and the car was put on the DVLA computer on the 1st December, 1979 and declared manufactured 1971. With help from the Mercedes-Benz Owners Club, this could be rectified and the original date
The Mercedes-Benz 190 SL is a two-door grand touring convertible with a removable hardtop that was produced between May 1955 and February 1963 with a prototype first shown at the 1954 New York Motor Show. It was sold alongside the faster, more expensive Mercedes-Benz 300 SL which it closely resembled both in its styling, engineering, detailing and fully independent suspension. However, the 190 SL did not use the 300 SL's purpose-built tubular space frame W198 platform but was built on a shortened monocoque R121 unit. The 190 SL was powered by a new 1.9 litre straight-four SOHC engine that developed 104bhp and was later also used in the W120, 180 and W121, 190 models. The four-cylinder engine block of the 190 SL was based on the six- cylinder engine of the 300 SL. This beautifully presented 190 SL, in a timeless combination of black with red leather, looks marvellous alongside the SL's plentiful brightwork. Restored in 2014, this 190 SL presents to a high standard overall. The paintwork is in good order with few imperfections to note and the chrome is in excellent condition, appearing as new throughout. The car is equipped with a matching black hardtop and a new black soft-top. The
The Mercedes-Benz W111 was a chassis code given to its top-range vehicles, including four-door saloon and produced from 1959 to 1968 and two-door coupés and cabriolets from 1961 to 1971. Design of a replacement for the two-door Pontons began in 1957 as most of the chassis and drivetrain were to be unified with the saloon with the emphasis was on the exterior styling. Some of the mockups and prototypes show that Mercedes-Benz attempted to give the two-door car a front styling similar to the Pagoda roadster. The rear bodywork however persisted and, as such though officially still called a 'fintail', the rear end design had no chrome fin highlights. Production began in late 1960 and in February of the next year the coupé was premiered in Stuttgart for the 75th anniversary of the opening of Mercedes-Benz Museum. The convertible followed at the Frankfurt Motor Show a few months later; the car was almost identical to the coupé with the soft-top roof folded into a recess behind the rear seat and covered by a tightly fitting bag. Unlike the previous generation of two-door ponton series, there was only one model for the two-door vehicle, the 220 SE on both versions, with the identical 2195c
The W124 is the Mercedes-Benz internal chassis-designation for the 1984 to 1995/96 version of the Mercedes-Benz E-Class, a mid-sized car with exceptionally high build quality. Much of the 124's engineering and many of its features were considered advanced in the field of automotive technology at its introduction, incorporating innovations that have been adopted throughout the industry. It had a single windscreen wiper that had an eccentric mechanism at its base that extended the wiper's reach to the top corners of the windscreen. Fuel injection was standard and the engines incorporated features that maximised performance such as an oxygen sensor in the exhaust system which could make the engine run more efficiently. This handsome E320 Coupé was supplied to the first of its four private owners by Brunswick Mercedes-Benz of Croydon at a total cost of just over £48,500 and registered on 4th March 1994. It has now covered a warranted 63,000 miles from new and boasts a documented service history comprising of some 20 services from new as well as the original purchase receipt. Extras include a five-speed automatic gearbox, remote central locking and alarm, climate control, electric seats
The W210 is an executive car produced from 1995 through to 2002. They were sold under the E-Class model names in both saloon and estate body types. Only 2,870 AMG E50's were ever built and only during 1996/97; there was no righthand drive version and the model was not sold in the USA or the UK. There were four engines that AMG installed in the W210, the first was the E36, M104.995, launched in 1996 then the M 119.985 in the Euro Spec E50 AMG produced only in 1997. The body styling on all of the W210 AMG models was the same until 2000 when a facelift and interior upgrades were implemented. The W210 E55 was the last vehicle for which a major portion of production took place at AMG in Affalterbach. Production was actually split between Affalterbach and the Bremen Mercedes-Benz facility until the end of 2001. This beautifully presented E50 AMG Sport in a rare colour combination, metallic green with black/green two-tone leather trim, this rare European specification example was imported into the UK in 2015 and was only every made in lefthand drive specification and for 1997 only. This stunning example, having only covered around 3,500 miles per year, has a very comprehensive service his
The W210 is an executive car produced from 1995 through to 2002 and sold under the E-Class model name in both saloon and estate body types. AMG installed four engines in the W210; the body styling on all of the W210 AMG models was the same until 2000 when a facelift was implemented. The W210 E55 was the last vehicle for which a major portion of production took place at AMG in Affalterbach. Production was actually split between Affalterbach and the Bremen Mercedes-Benz facility until the end of 2001. Output of the E55 AMG was some 354bhp with a torque figure of 391ft/lb which propelled it from 0-62mph in just 5.7 seconds with a limited top speed of 155mph. This well-maintained and personalised example benefits from a recent general and gearbox service. The last owner acquired the car in 2006 and has enjoyed it immensely. It has nine Mercedes-Benz service stamps up to 137,677 and benefits from hot and cold seating for both front and rear. Other extras include telephone and factory satellite navigation as well as climate control, cruise control, alarm and 18" AMG alloy wheels. The AMG moniker is one that collectors enjoy and this example is offered at no reserve.
Unveiled at the March 1989 Geneva Motor Show, the new Mercedes-Benz R129-series SL range was beautifully engineered. Based around a two-door monocoque bodyshell, its sophisticated, all-round independent suspension was augmented by a host of active and passive safety features including electronic stability control, ventilated ABS disc brakes, adaptive-damping shock absorbers, front airbags and an integral rollover bar that deployed in less than a third of a second if the car ever sensed an impending flip. Suitably cosseting, the convertible's impeccably built cabin included a fully automated power hood and featured such advancements as memory seats, electric windows/mirrors and an adjustable steering column. Yet lurking beneath all the luxury and refinement was a performance orientated sports car. This lovely example in great condition is presented in Almandine red with cream leather trim and has covered just 87,500 miles from new. The car has been garaged predominantly its entire life and benefits from ice cold air conditioning for those humid summer days with the roof down. Supplied with a hardtop and hood which was replaced in 2007, this Roadster also comes from a fantastic histo
The Mercedes-Benz W113 SL was developed under the auspices of Mercedes-Benz Technical Director Fritz Nallinger, Chief Engineer Rudolf Uhlenhaut and Head of Styling, Friedrich Geiger. The lead designers were Paul Bracq and Béla Barényi who created its distinctive, patented, slightly concave hardtop which inspired the 'Pagoda' nickname. The model was manufactured from 1963 through to 1971 and boasted an in-line straight six engine with multi-port fuel injection. The larger capacity 280 (2.8 litre) was introduced in 1967 and remained largely unchanged until 1971 and represents the most desirable of all the SL range, producing, as it does, more power with an improved five bearing crankshaft. This Mercedes-Benz has recently been imported from the U.S. and presents in very good order. The 2.8 litre engine runs well and is mated to a manual gearbox making this a delight to drive. The red metallic paintwork is in good order as is the tan interior. Not currently registered in the UK although all the paperwork such as the NOVA is present and correct should you wish to do so. Very attractively estimated given the buoyant market for these bigger engine Pagoda's.
The Mercedes-Benz 220A was succeeded in March 1956 by the 220S saloon which was externally almost identical but had an upgraded version of the six cylinder, 2195cc engine giving 99hp which was later increased to 106hp due to the use of twin carburettors. Introduced in 1956, the 220 S saloon was one of a trio of new models featuring unitary construction bodyshells employing large, box-section side members; hence the term 'Ponton'; the others being the 190 and 219. All round coil-sprung independent suspension had long been a fixture of the Mercedes-Benz range and that of the newcomers benefitted from the newly developed single pivot rear swing axle. Short-wheelbase coupé and cabriolet versions of the 220 S soon followed. Visually, the 220 S featured a new one piece front bumper instead of the three-piece bumper used on the 220A. Also, the twin chrome and rubber strips running under the doors of the 220a were replaced with solid chrome strips. Originally delivered new to Australia, land of the points-based immigration system, it appears to have spent the majority of its life in Glen Iris, Victoria before being acquired by the current owner in the UK in 2015. This is backed up by a Dai
The first 'S-class' Mercedes-Benz arrived in 1968 in the form of the 280 S and 280 SE which were large comfortable sports saloons offering powerful touring capabilities and luxurious interiors with space to seat five occupants. Known as W108/109 models, they were constructed on 108" wheelbase and the new S-Class saloons were much heavier than earlier models. The styling was updated using a thoroughly modern design featuring the attractive stacked layout of the headlights which was popular during the period. Although the 280 was usually powered by a 2.8 litre, straight six engine, Mercedes-Benz rather confusingly added a V8 engined 280 SE to the model range. The 280 SE 3.5 had a 3.5 litre, V8 engine and came with both automatic and manual transmission and power steering. These saloons were well equipped and extremely powerful. The 280 SE 3.5 would reach a top-speed of 125mph and offered effortless high-speed cruising mated with supple ride comfort. Between 1971 and 1972, Mercedes-Benz produced 11,309 examples and they have always been popular with collectors and enthusiasts alike. Manufactured in the last year of production, this splendid V8 example is finished in maroon with a blac
The 4973cc, R129 Mercedes-Benz SL 500 carried on the tradition of the fast and reliable grand touring convertible from Mercedes-Benz. Born out of the earlier 500SL models, the new SL500 featured many new and innovative ideas for the time such as controlled electronic damping, automatically expanding roll-over bar and a more modern multi-link rear axle. A fully operating electric hood, windows, door mirrors and seats made this model easy and comfortable to operate. With powerful engines, stopping power was aided by anti-locking braking for added reassurance. Beautifully presented in black with contrasting cream leather interior, this handsome five litre SL has been privately owned for the last nine years and serviced annually in line with the MoT test. Used predominantly as a third car and offered with the accompanying hard top, the vendor describes the car as having never missed a beat over the last 50,000 miles. The history file with this roadster is complete with service documentation, Mercedes-Benz owner's manual and many MoT test certificates alongside a MoT test certificate valid until November 2016. An example of the rising classic R129 in the most desirable 500 specification
Premièred at the Frankfurt Auto Show in 1965, the initial model line-up of the W 108 consisted of the 250 S, 250 SE, and 300 SE, as well as a sole W 109, the 300 SEL. Engines for the new car were carried over from the previous generation, but enlarged and refined. The 250 S was the entry-level vehicle fitted with a 2496 cm³ Straight-six M108 engine, with two dual downdraft carburettors, delivering 130 bhp at 5400 rpm which accelerated the car to 62 mph in 13 seconds and gave a top speed of 113 mph. Approximately 130,000 of the 250 S/SE models were built during the first two years of the W 108/109's existence. This 1966 Mercedes-Benz 250 S saloon is in remarkable condition given its 50 years of age and although, largely original, has very little signs of its maturity. The tan interior is complete and in good condition as is the black coach work and chrome. This example has spent its recent years in France and dry stored. We are assure it is mechanically good; starts, runs and should be entirely reliable with the vendor having recently MoT'd the car for any new prospective buyers. Currently French registered, this car is offered with a NOVA certificate so registering the car for the
