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 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 1980s and 1990s have started to appreciate rapidly, 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. Classic cars have proven to be among the most resilient and rewarding investments in recent years, with the Historic Automobile Group Index (HAGI) jumping 39% in 2013, 16% in 2014, and 17% in 2015 while posting gains of 467% over the last 10 years.
