The Mercedes-Benz R129 models were produced from 1989 through to 2001 and were sold under the SL Class model names. The R129 replaced the R107 SL Class in 1989 and was subsequently replaced by the R230 in 2001. The R129 was based on the shortened floorpan of the Mercedes-Benz W124 saloon and featured many innovative details for the time. The R129 came to public attention in 1991 when Diana, Princess of Wales, sold her Jaguar XJS to lease a J-registration, metallic-red 500 SL, becoming the first member of the royal family to use a foreign car. This controversy sparked a media storm as it was questioned whether a member of British royalty should drive foreign cars. The fifth generation of the legendary SL series of two door convertible sports cars made by Mercedes-Benz was known as the R230. It featured a fully retractable hardtop that was marketed as the Vario Roof; a first for the SL Class although it had been available on the smaller SLK model since 1997.
This sleek looking Mercedes shows only two previous keepers and has been in the vendors possession since 2004. The high level of specification for this popular model includes satellite navigation, cruise control and traction control. The car presents well in the classic colour combination for this model of silver metallic with grey leather interior. The cars accompanying file contains various bills, receipts and previous MoT test certificates and a service book showing six stamps. The last service was completed in June 2019 at 34,907 miles and included a gearbox service. Offered to auction with a V5C registration document and a MoT test certificate valid until 27th December 2020. This impressive Mercedes is offered at a fraction of the ú66,000 paid by the current owner.
