Blessed with the same effortlessly elegant Paul Bracq styling as its earlier sibling, it was powered by a new seven-bearing crankshaft 2496cc SOHC straight-six engine that developed some 150bhp and 159lbft of torque - sufficient outputs to endow the Mercedes with a 0-60mph time of a whisker under 11 seconds and a top speed just north of 120mph. Braking was by power-assisted discs on all four corners, and steering by power-assisted recirculating ball. Able to blur the divide between city streets and open roads with ease, the majority of 250SLs were specified with four-speed automatic gearboxes. Faster than the 230SL which preceded it yet more stiffly-sprung and agile than its 280SL successor, the 250SL remained in production for just a single year, accounting for a mere 5, 196 sales worldwide, more than a third of which were exported to America. A cult car by any standards, SLs have had countless celebrity owners from Charlton Heston to Kate Moss, John Lennon to Sophia Loren - this desirable RHD example is fitted with automatic transmission and has just been subject to an extensive bodywork restoration, repaint and mechanical overhaul. This has included an engine out service, new battery, S/S exhaust, new windscreen, refurbished hard top with new head lining, new Michelin tyres, new carpets plus door cards and many new chrome parts - For more information or if you wish to view this car, please do not hesitate to contact us., Only Two Miles from Southampton Airport & Parkway Train Station - Happy to Collect You from There!,
