A SL65 AMG which ticks all the boxes, in terms of mileage, condition, specification, rarity and performance.
Purchased new from Greenoaks or Ascot, for an eye watering cost of £152,609.57p!
The original owner opted for a very high specification list from new, all of which is detailed on the original purchase invoice.
Also within the vast history file, are all the original and correct booklets, still held within the original wallet, and the original order form, purchase invoice and PDI checklist.
The service book has 6 service stamps, all of which have been carried out at Mercedes Benz main dealerships, with supporting invoices.
Alongside the service history, are 10 MOT’s which warrants the mileage throughout the life of the vehicle.
The vehicle benefits from a service having been carried out very recently – 11th October 2019.
A Tracker is also fitted, and the paperwork is present of course.
Body & Paintwork
Optioned from new in the quite simply stunning, Almandine black.
This colour is certainly more of a Purple Pearl than it is black, and is a rare (and expensive option)!
Having recently been detailed, the car is without usual ‘swirls’ and cleaning marks and looks fantastic with the sunlight on it.
As you would expect with such low mileage and owners, the car has clearly been cherished, and the condition of the bodywork shows this. No ‘gravel rashing’ or chipping to the front bumper, or wheel arches and apart from one touch in you could nearly go as far as saying it is faultless.
Absolutely all original paintwork across the entirety of the car, and this is including the wheels.
All badges, trims, lights and glass are original and in fantastic condition also.
With the benefit of the Designo spoiler, fantastic colour, and beautiful condition – this SL65 is certainly a very striking collectors grade vehicle.
Interior & Trim
The interior also benefits from various optional upgrades, and can only be described as being in ‘as new’ condition.
Designo black single tone leather was optioned with comfort ventilated, memory, massaging front seats and a luggage restraint.
Designo wood was also optioned at a cost of over £1000.00!
Designo over carpets were also put on the list and are still in place, and again as new.
This is on top of the already superb specification of the SL65 AMG and includes such things as Cruise control, Front & rear parking parking sensors, Electric folding roof, Sat Nav and much much more.
Of course everything works just as it should do.
If you are missing a SL65 from your collection then this is the car you have been waiting for.
What an engine this is, the hand built V12 Bi-Turbo gives blistering performance.
With 604bhp and 544lb ft the SL65 AMG really raised the bar, and when the cars were initially reviewed by the magazines around the time of release, one magazine had the 155mph limiter removed to see what top speed the SL65 could achieve, and with no modifications the car was around 215mph!
Amazingly, even with such performance, the car is very pleasant to drive around town as a daily driver, being very docile and user friendly.
As you would fully expect, all running gear is in superb order.
We have had the car on our ramps here and looked over the car ourselves – it is simply fantastic.
When with our local Mercedes Benz dealer for a service, they were extremely complimentary of the condition of the car also.
