The latter is what a British Mercedes - Benz SL owner appears to have done. The lady owner of the bright red Benz had received the car as a birthday present some time earlier, and unfortunately she says she misplaced her keys immediately after. As a result, the SL500 sat in a garage in Knightsbridge, central London, until very recently, with only 75 miles on its digital odometer. Due to laying dormant for decades, the R129 bodystyle SL needed "a light re - commission, " which most likely meant replacing all consumable items such as gaskets and fluids, and cleaning off 20 years of dust. The owner has included a letter verifying the car's mileage.
