A beautiful, high-specification, final-facelift R129 SL500 with just 74k miles from new.


Finished in Brilliant Silver with pale grey leather, this SL was comprehensively optioned with a panoramic (glass) hard top, xenon headlights, heated/memory seats, half-wood steering wheel and gear knob, plus ‘Sador’ alloy wheels, rear seats and all the usual amenities including climate control, cruise control and so on.


Full service history with 14 services recorded, majority MB main dealer. All original books and manuals and a folder of supporting bills receipts.


In beautiful original condition throughout. Superb paintwork, excellent underside, matching Continental tyres and a superb interior. The hood is original and in excellent order, as is the panoramic hardtop (not pictured).


As you might expect it drives beautifully too, with effortless performance from the 5-litre engine, and all accessories function as intended.


In summary, a very desirable R129, being a 500, final-facelift and with the most sought-after options.
