With a mere 965 miles clocked on its odometer, this is also something that will turn your dreams into nightmares when thinking about how many work hours you need to amass to afford it.

Anyways, when discussing fairly young classic cars (youngtimers), and pristine premium convertibles, it doesn’t get much better than owning an immaculate Mercedes SL. Folks in the United Kingdom are in luck because an R107-generation Mercedes-Benz 500SL has just popped up. This one is up for grabs after being driven a mere 965 miles since it was new back in 1989. It costs an arm and a leg, of course – 94,995 pounds, which is more than a 2017 SL500.

Classics – 1989 Mercedes SL500 is the stuff of luxury dreams 4


Making use of the kindergarten math leads us to believe it was only driven for 34 miles a year…It was sold back in November 1, 1989 so the model is part of the last series before the R129-generation Mercedes SL came out and about. The example has a particularly enticing mix of black exterior and beige interior – all looking to be in like-new condition. Mercedes 500SLs aren’t that rare actually – but getting one in right-hand drive and with such low miles will be an issue for sure. It also boasts cruise control, air conditioning, heated seats, and a matching hard top – aside from a roaring 5.0-liter V8.
