Following the resounding success of the R107, the R129 Mercedes-Benz SL had a rather tough act to follow, as it still had to carry on the tradition of a fast and reliable grand touring convertible. The advantage designers had with the R129 was technology. By the time the final car rolled off the production line in 1989, these earlier models had been in production for 18 years with very little change. Therefore, the SL 500 featured many new and innovative ideas, such as controlled electronic damping, automatically expanding roll-over bar and a more modern multi link rear axle. In addition to this was a fully operating electric roof, windows, door mirrors and seats, which made this model easy and comfortable to operate. The new SL also boasted a more powerful engine and the stopping power was aided by anti-locking braking for added reassurance.
Originally supplied by Mercedes-Benz in Woking on 18th April 1996, this SL 500 is in good order throughout and is described by the vendor as driving with no known faults. With only one previous owner, a host of invoices and the original service book, this has clearly been a well looked after example. These are well equipped vehicles with electric memory seats, heated seats, air conditioning, power roof and smoothness from the 4973cc V12 engine that has to be experienced to be appreciated. Offered for sale with a V5C registration document together with a full years MoT test certificate, this SL 500 offers exceptional value.
