Designed in 1984, the R129 was based on the shortened floorpan of the Mercedes-Benz W12 and featured many innovative details for the time; these included electronically controlled damping (optional) and a hidden, automatically extending roll-over bar. There were also a high number of standard features, with electric action for the windows, mirrors, seats and convertible top. The rarest was the SL70 AMG, which had a larger-displacement M120 V12, producing 510bhp. This monster of an engine later went on to power the Pagani Zonda – the motor itself is a work of art.  AMG only made around 300 R129 SL-class cars, making them exceedingly rare, none more so than the SL70.

The build sheet (sourced from AMG) for this incredible car, states a build date of 17th January 1996. According to the build data a 510bhp AMG M120 series motor was fitted (AMG records show this as being engine number 29), with a displacement of 7200cc. Further AMG enhancements include the fitting of a sports exhaust, AMG 18 inch wheels and also an AMG wood veneer set on the interior, in addition to AMG badging inside and out. This very rare car is offered with correspondence from AMG in Germany, all books and manuals (including the original leather bound wallet), invoices for servicing, and additionally a NOVA certificate for European registration. All in all a fabulously usable rare car of truly hyper-car performance, which can be used and enjoyed in all road conditions.

Das erbaute Sheet (bezogen von AMG) für dieses unglaubliche Auto, wurde am 17. Januar 1996 festgesetzt. Gemäß den Baudaten wurde ein 510bhp AMG M120 Serienmotor angepasst (laut AMG Aufzeichnungen handelt es sich um Motornummer 29), mit einer Versetzung von 7200 Cc. Außerdem inkludiert sind ein angepasster Sportauspuff, AMG 18-Zoll-Räder und ein AMG Holzfurniersatz auf dem Interieur. Dieses sehr seltene Auto wird mit Korrespondenz von AMG in Deutschland angeboten, mitsamt aller Bücher und Handbücher, Rechnungen für die Wartung, und zusätzlich ein NOVA Zertifikat für die europäische Registrierung. Alles in allem ein fabelhaft verwendbares und seltenes Auto, welches zu allen Straßenbedingungen genossen werden kann.
