Stunning Mercedes SL280 complemented with one of the most extensive service portfolios we have seen at Karlsen Auto Design.

This beautiful SL benefits from recent paint work which has ensured there is no rust/rot free vehicle in her original Metallic Grey. Shortly after this works a new Mohair Hood was fitted including perspex rear screen. The SL also comes with a saucer hard top with original chrome detailing and headlining. A new Dove Grey full leather re-trim was also undertaken including all door cards.

The SL has been serviced religiously and includes a recent service. We also will place a 1 Yr MOT upon the vehicle.

Alloy wheels, Power steering.

We only buy the finest examples of vehicles and welcome any inspection on our SL280.

All vehicles come complete with a full History check (HPi report) to ensure of clean providence and added peace of mind.

Viewing can be arranged any time. Out of hours viewing available by request.

We can also email any prospective purchaser a PDF copy of all receipts/service records.

This has to be the best and original SL available in the most desirable colour combination/specification.

Viewing highly recommended.

Further images and video upon request. Vehicle physically available to view/buy.
