Mercedes R129 500 SL


The R129 has surged in popularity here in recent years and, given the classic status of early cars and the legendary build quality, it’s not hard to understand why.

This very handsome 500 SL from 1990 is one such example and has incredibly low mileage of just 35k miles in its 34 years, and has had just 3 owners.

Finished in the Astral Silver with Silver lowers, the car presents in extremely good condition with its original hard top and “manhole” alloy wheels. It’s abundantly clear that the car has been meticulously maintained.

The black leather interior is in beautiful original condition and has all of the usual appointments including electric heated and memory seats, and was optioned from new with rear “kinder” seats. A modern Blaupunkt radio is the only non-original item.

The 5.0 V8 engine is the early non-cat more powerful version and has benefitted from major work in the last 5 years such as new timing chain, ECUs and ignition components.

A good service history file accompanies the car and backs up its remarkably low mileage.

The R129 is becoming increasingly sought after, and this wonderful 500 SL provides modern creature comforts with all of the benefits of classic tax and insurance.

Viewing strictly by appointment. All cars supplied with valid NCT where appropriate.
