A dream for the Mercedes-Benz collector or enthusiast

The spectacular 1980 Mercedes-Benz 450SL Roadster featured here is finished in stunning Silver-Blue Metallic over a blue leather interior with matching blue folding convertible top and Silver-Blue Metallic removable factory hardtop. This particular example was sold new through Nichols Mercedes-Benz of Augusta, Maine to a meticulous owner who cared for and sparingly drove the 450SL from new until just recently. Today it presents in incredibly well-preserved condition, having never been exposed to inclement weather. A mere 25,110 miles are present on the odometer; a number which is indicative of the total mileage accrued since new. As a 1980 model, this 450SL hails from the final year of production and is extremely desirable today for its use of a cast-iron engine block. As one would expect from a one owner motorcar with notably low mileage, an excellent assortment of documentation accompanies the 450SL today, including its books, original stamped warranty plate, original window sticker and more! Recent values of extremely well kept, low mileage motorcars from the 1980's and 1990's have started to rapidly appreciate and this 25,000 mile example is sure to yield tremendous investment potential for its next caretaker.

We are proud to offer this exceptional 1980 Mercedes-Benz 450SL Roadster to the most particular collector, investor or enthusiast who appreciates low mileage and the timeless style of these iconic Mercedes-Benz models.
