The Mercedes-Benz 'R230' first appeared in 2001 at the Frankfurt Motor Show, but it was in 2003 that the seriously powerful and stunning looking SL55 AMG version was introduced. Massively fast and very distinctive looking, the 5.4 litre engine gave 476 BHP and a tree stump pulling 520lbs foot torque! Early owners included Jeremy Clarkson, all of whom were massive fans of the way it drove, the way it looked and above all- the way it sounded! Featuring the amazing "Panoramic Electric Glass Roof System", it became the sports car to own between 2003 and 2006. This particular car is finished in the rare colour of 'Designo Blue' with Grey leather upholstery. All Designo colours were special order from the factory. Today it has covered just 67,400 miles from new and is presented in excellent condition all round with a comprehensive service history, good tyres and unmarked alloy wheels. Having had just 2 owners in the last 8 years, the mileage is warranted by the vendor who also confirms that the car is accident free. What incredible value in this price range today for a well looked after ten year old Supercar!
