SUMMARY

With just 25,000 miles covered, only one previous keeper, and 12 stamps in the service history, this is a superb example.

DESCRIPTION

  • The words 'base model' don't really work with a car such as Mercedes' SL, but that is essentially what this newcomer (in 2003) was
  • Priced then at £56,340, it was some £11,450 less than the SL500 - despite identical looks
  • Auto Express saying: "With 245bhp from its 3.7 litres, the SL350 is far from underpowered, and it is also less thirsty than the SL 500, averaging 24.6mpg. The V8 'woofle' may not be present, now replaced by a smooth, sporty six-pot 'hum'. The V6, connected to a six-speed Sequentronic manual transmission, is barely any slower than the V8, and the small pace deficit could be due to the more conventional chassis set up, and with the lighter engine the car feels more incisive in corners than the V8"
  • With just 25,000 miles covered, only one previous keeper, and 12 stamps in the service history, this is a superb example
  • Last Mercedes service September 2022
