This is a no reserve auction - highest bidder owns it. 2002 Mercedes SL500 R230 series Only 129,000 km, with full service history. It's almost due for a service now. Has all books and two keys.
Very tidy condition, completely original, as delivered. I believe I'm the 3rd owner.
AMG 18" wheels fitted from new - these were an $8000 option in 2002. Currently unregistered. The vehicle has two issues: 1. There is a fault in the Active Body Control (ABC) system - clunking from the rear suspension - I believe that the accumulator is faulty - a replacement is supplied. 2. There is a current drain in the system somewhere and the secondary battery in the boot is drained if the car is not used for two weeks. Those are the only faults I'm aware of. The car is running and drivable although you could not drive it south woth out getting the ABC issue fixed.
It's just too difficult to find someone in Darwin with the necessary Mercedes experience to properly diagnose and fix these issues. I've given up and wouldn't go near the Darwin Mercedes dealer ever. Will assist with freight. You should be able to freight it to any southern capital for around $1000 possibly less as it's backloading. Chance to own an SL500 at a bargain price. I suspect that a Mercedes specialist down south could sort out the issues quite easily and cheaply. Payment by bank transfer only
