Mercedes SL - £20k-£30k: Best cheap convertibles

SL 350 (2010/60-reg, 47k miles)

Best cheap convertibles - Mercedes SL


One model that has been a staple of the Mercedes line-up since the fifties is the SL sports car.

Shortly after the original 300 SL Gullwing coupé arrived, Mercedes launched a convertible version, and since then, all of its successors have followed the same template. From 2003, the SL gained a folding metal hard-top, and it’s the facelifted version that’s available at prices from around £20,000. The AMG models pack a huge punch, but they have steep running costs to match, so we’d recommend the smaller-engined SL 350.
