From a firm lineage of beautiful Mercedes-Benz SL’s, the R129 model was introduced in 1989, and continued the company’s tradition of fast and reliable grand touring convertibles. Stemming from the earlier 500SL model, the new SL500 featured a 5.0 litre V8 engine capable of 302 bhp.
The new model also featured an expanding roll over bar, a fully electric hood, electric seats, mirrors, anti-lock brakes and a multi-link rear axle. A facelift of the R129 was carried out in 1995 which included revisions to the headlights, rear lights and automatic climate control.
This particular example comes with full Mercedes-Benz main dealer or specialist history, stamped service book, receipts, new perspex windows in the soft top, new Michelin pilot sport tyres, refurbished wheels, new under bonnet insulation and a new battery. This R129 has been cherished, well looked after and presents a fine summer investment to enjoy!
