AMG was originally a separate car tuning business, which Mercedes took a 50% stake in back in 1999 before buying it completely in 2005.

This Mercedes SL is from before that time and only eight of these AMG-fettled cars were ever made and delivered to the US.

This car is the first of that run to be built and delivered.

They had an uprated 276hp V8 engine, a five-speed manual gearbox and stiffer suspension and a limited-slip differential for better cornering.

AMG also added BBS alloy wheels and figure-hugging Recaro sports seats.

You needed deep pockets back in 1982 if you wanted one of these cars, as they were hugely customisable.

The car’s advert reads: ‘A rare and intriguing model with a passionate following, examples are fiercely sought after today for their incredible looks, wonderful driving dynamics, and equally impressive performance.

‘With pre-merger AMG cars increasing steadily in cachet and collectability, this notable 500 SL 5.0 five-speed example is a rare find that will surely command attention wherever it lands next.
