The R129 was based on the shortened floorpan of the Mercedes-Benz W124 and featured many innovative details for its time, for instance, electronically controlled damping (optional) and a hidden, automatically expanding roll-over bar. The R107’s rather dated rear diagonal swing axle gave way to a modern multi-link axle. The number of standard features was high; with mirrors, seats, a hood and electric action for the windows. In autumn 1993, Mercedes rearranged names and models; the 300 SL was replaced by the 24-valve SL 280 and SL 320 (with 2.8 L and 3.2 L I6 engines, only the 280 being available with a manual gearbox). SL 500 and 600 continued with their respective powerful engines and Antilock Braking System (ABS), which senses impending wheel lockup under heavy braking and pumps the front brakes individually or the rear brakes together as needed up to 30 times per second, preventing lockup and maintain steering ability. 1995 saw a mild facelift concerning head and taillights and several new features adopted as standard: such as side air bags, automatic climate control and ESP, among other things.
This fantastic example has had only one owner from new and has covered a mere 1,950 kilometres since its manufacture. Truly a timewarp example and presented in red with a black leather interior fitted with air conditioning and comes with a black hood and still sits on its original tyres from new. With its ultra smooth V12 engine and with the hood down, this is the ultimate sports car for open top touring. This surely must be one of the finest and lowest mileage Mercedes sports cars of this era available today, incredible! Not to be missed.
Dieses fantastische Stück hatte zuvor nur einen Eigentümer und ist lediglich 1950 Kilometer seit seiner Herstellung gefahren. Präsentiert in roter äußerer Optik mit schwarzem Lederinterieur und schwarzer Haube, und mit Klimaanlage, sowie Originalrädern ausgestattet. Mit seinem V12 Motor ist dies der ultimative Sportwagen für Touren mit offenem Verdeck. Dies ist sicher eines der feinsten (und mit niedrigster Meilenzahl) verfügbaren Mercedes Sportwagen seiner Ära! Verpassen sie es nicht.
