What's the best way to sell a modern classic?

I'm trying to get rid of my 20 year old Mercedes-Benz SL280 with 141,000 miles on the clock. It has over six months MoT left, but I've struggled to get a valuation due to the car's age. Where would be the best and easiest place to dispose of the car?

If you're absolutely desperate to offload it, then you could put it into an auction. There are several classic specialists while modern car auctions also do modern classic sales. It just depends on where you're based. If you go down the auction route then be aware of all the fees involved and any possible penalties for withdrawing your car from the sale (if you change your mind).
