Click on image for Fullscreen
A very desirable R129 SL500 with just 50k miles from new, panoramic hard top and AMG two-piece alloy wheels.
First registered in August 1997 by Mercedes of Worcester, the 500 was specified with rare Aquamarine Blue metallic paintwork, contrasted by Mushroom leather interior. It has some great options, including a panoramic roof, half-wood steering wheel, memory/heated seats, rear seats and those lovely two-piece staggered AMG wheels.
Today, it has covered just 50,993 miles from new and has had five owners and has been previously supplied by ourselves.
There is a full service history comprising of 14 stamps in the service book from Mercedes main dealers and specialists and a folder of bills/receipts. All original books and manuals are with the car plus two remote keys.
The car is in absolutely beautiful condition inside and out; superb paintwork, freshly refurbished wheels wearing premium tyres all round (rears are new), unmarked hardtop and an interior that is as fresh as the day it left the factory.
Drives beautifully, everything works as intended and has the tightness and crispness associated with low mileage examples.
This is a ’96-98’ model of 500, which is especially desirable as it combines the earlier, more exotic, 500 engine with the later five-speed automatic, coil-on-plug ignition, no wiring harness issues and improved climate control.
All in all, this SL combines the right engine with the right options, a fabulous colour together with low mileage, excellent history and superb condition.
