Sold

An absolutely beautiful R129 SL320 that has covered just 31,877 miles from new, backed up by a full and comprehensive service history.

 

Finished in the desirable combination of Blue Black metallic with mushroom leather that makes an SL look fabulous.

This car also has the optional five-speed automatic gearbox that is a perfect match for the eager straight-six engine. The full option list is detailed below.

 

Supplied new by Mercedes-Benz Edgware Road to a lady in London who always garaged the car and used it sparingly. After 18 years of ownership and just 14k miles the car was sold to a retired gentleman who again always garaged the car, just using it for weekends and only adding another 5000 miles. Its third owner purchased the car in 2018; he enjoyed using the car over the last three years and brought the mileage up to the 31k miles it has today. Again, it was a second car and always garaged when not in use.

 

This SL stars in James Taylor’s 2012 book ‘Factory Original Mercedes SL’, a copy of which comes with the car.

 

Full service history with 15 records (main dealer and specialist) along with a large folder of supporting receipts going back to the early 90s, and almost all previous MoT certificates and V5s. Last serviced at 30,637 miles in May 2021.

We have just put the car through our workshop for a thorough check and rectified any issue we could find, which was not a lot.

 

The car is in immaculate condition throughout. The paintwork is unmarked, the wheels are perfect and wear recent matching Goodyear tyres all round. The interior is similarly superb; free from any wear or fading as you might expect with a 31k mile car. The Coco floor mats are a nice addition too.

The underside is in excellent corrosion free condition and has been further protected by Dinitrol treatment in 2012.

The hood is in excellent condition and benefits from recently replaced hood windows. The hard top (not pictured) comes with the car and is in excellent condition.

 

On the road this SL is a pleasure – thanks to its low mileage and correct maintenance it drives beautifully with fantastic performance. It has a tautness and freshness that you only find in low-mileage, cared-for cars.

 

In summary a beautiful SL in fantastic colours that’s ready for the next owner to enjoy.
