2003 MERCEDES-BENZ (R230) SL55 AMG - 4,606 MILES

KEY FACTS

  • This Mercedes-Benz (R230) SL55 AMG is an exceptionally well-preserved example of the high-performance roadster, with a desirable factory specification and little more than its delivery mileage on the odometer.
  • It is powered by a supercharged 5.4-litre V8, driving the rear wheels through a five-speed automatic gearbox.
  • The car has been kept as part of a collection of over 50 cars, with just one keeper on the logbook.
  • It was brought out of storage and serviced at Mercedes-Benz of Tamworth in November 2020.

EQUIPMENT AND FEATURES

  • This SL55 was specified with Tellerium Silver Metallic paintwork and grey leather upholstery.
  • It rides on a set of 18-inch ‘Alphard’ wheels, which are wrapped with Pirelli tyres.
  • Factory equipment includes electrically adjusted heated massage seats, satellite navigation, parking sensors, climate control, keyless go, cruise control, a Bose sound system, a fire extinguisher and a panoramic sunroof.
  • Its original owner’s manuals, service book, toolkit and spare keys will be included, along with an unused, factory-supplied luggage bag and windbreaker, a complete history of MOT certificates and several maintenance invoices.

CONDITION

  • There is no known bodywork damage.
  • Its original Tellerium Silver Metallic paintwork is in superb condition, as shown in the gallery.
  • Inside, the grey leather-trimmed seats have some very faint creases on the bases, but there is no significant wear to be seen.
  • The dashboard plastics and switchgear controls are immaculate, and no electrical  issues have been detected.
  • The most recent MOT test was on 9 December 2020 at 4,367 miles, which was a clean pass with no advisories or defects.

SUMMARY

This Mercedes-Benz (R230) SL55 AMG is a ‘time warp’ example of the desirable high-performance convertible, which has been kept as part of a collection for nearly 20 years.
