Offered here is a piece of Hollywood and Mercedes history! This 1980 Mercedes-Benz 450SL was once owned by famous actress Kim Basigner. Miss Basigner came to prominence playing Bond girl Domino Petachi in the 1983 film Never Say Never Again. She is also known for roles in Batman (1997) and L.A. Confidential (1997); the car comes with an authentic signed copy of the movie publication by Miss Basigner. Her Mercedes also comes with authentic ownership documentation such as her original registration, insurance card, and copy of Kim's original title. She owned the car with her husband, make-up artist Ron Britton.
This 80's Mercedes Roadster is finished in the original Light Ivory paint with a matching removable hardtop. It has a brown soft top with matching brown leather interior. The car was fully restored with one repaint. It is powered by the original 4.5L V8 with an automatic transmission with rear-wheel drive. The car features power windows, air conditioning, power steering, power brakes, rear window defroster, power antenna, and original stereo deck. It is a a beautiful car, fires on command, and is a blast to drive, especially with the top down. You can just imagine Kim and Ron driving this car on the Hollywood Hills in the 90's.
The car also comes with all the books, manuals, and above mentioned Kim Basigner authentic documentation. Be sure to check out all the photos and video on our main website: Garage Kept Motors. Call if interested or e-mail with any questions. Thank you for looking.
