Car loans put Damon Hill's Mercedes in reach

Taking a competitive car loan could put you behind the wheel of a wonderful sports car owned by one of Britain's finest ever drivers.

Taking a competitive car loan could put you behind the wheel of a wonderful sports car owned by one of Britain's finest ever drivers.

A Mercedes Benz SL55 AMG owned by Damon Hill has been put up for sale with a very reasonable £39,000 price tag, reports Auto Trader, less than half the price of buying one of these great cars new.

The SL travels from 0-62mph in a breathtaking 4.5 seconds and turns out 510bhp from its colossal 5.5 litre V8.

Although theoretically capable of hitting close to 200mph, the car has an electronic limiter fitted for safety reasons, keeping it down to a still incredibly fast 155mph.

So with the buying power of car loans behind you a dream driving experience could be yours, one that has the stamp of approval of a Formula 1 champion.

Since Damon took the title in 1996 no British driver has come close, but it looks like that may change this year as rookie Lewis Hamilton again extended his lead over team mate – and increasingly his rival – Fernando Alonso in Hungary last weekend.
