West Coast Classics are proud to present an absolutely exceptional example of this rare 1991 Mercedes-Benz 300SL 24 valve 3.0L 6 cylinder roadster with only 13K original miles in the highly desirable and striking color combination of original factory 'Signal Red' color paint with a Palomino leather interior, a Black power soft top and matching factory 'Signal Red' hard top and is a rare US import!
For 1991, the Mercedes-Benz 300SL was powered by a 24-valve dual-overhead cam six-cylinder engine displacing 180.8 cubic-inches and offering nearly 230 horsepower. The 300SL came with either a five-speed manual gearbox as standard or an optional five-speed automatic. Disc brakes could be found in both the front and rear. New for this year was the Adaptive Damping System (ADS).
After nearly two decades, the 560SL was replaced by the 300SL and 500SL in 1990 with the new R129 series. These new rear-wheel drive two-seater coupe/roadsters rode on a short and sporty wheelbase and came with both a folding top and removable aluminum hardtop. There were airbags installed on both the drivers and passenger's side. Both luxurious and sporty, the 300SL could race from zero-to-sixty in about 9 seconds.
This particular example was always garaged since new with no accidents and with the original and beautiful 'Signal Red' color factory color paint still in absolutely exceptional condition. The original 'Palomino' leather seats are also in absolutely beautiful condition with virtually no signs of any wear as is the original dashboard and wood veneer interior - obviously always garaged from the elements! The car has its original factory 'German canvas' Black color power soft top which is still as new and has hardly ever seen the light of day with a very clear rear plastic window and the car has it's original and also factory correct matching color hard top.
This is a beautifully kept and maintained car and has had no accidents and has a clean CARFAX report and looks and drives exactly like such a well maintained and serviced very low original mileage Mercedes should and must be seen and driven to be truly appreciated!
You will look long and hard to find a lower mileage example in anywhere close to this condition of this rare 300SL model or as well maintained and beautiful and always garaged an example in this very striking color combination available anywhere else!
