In 1995 Mercedes released the Mille Miglia edition, to commemorate the 40th anniversary of Stirling Moss’s win of the 1955 Mille Miglia road race.
The limited edition was available in either SL 280,SL 320 or SL 500 guise, came in Brilliant Silver metallic, and had Evo II six-spoke polished alloys, red and black leather interior, carbon-fibre trim and extra equipment.
Stirling Moss was given the first SL 500 built. According to the brochure of this special edition, only 600 pieces were to be built, however only 40 were built.
This actual car was supplied new by Jacksons garage in Jersey in 1996 to its one and only owner. The condition is remarkable for its age and is original having been garaged from new.
* Registered new 1996

This is undoubtably one of the finest examples in existence of this rare and investable SL and most definitely should be considered by a collector.
