The R129 Mercedes-Benz models were produced from 1989 through to 2001 and were sold under the SL-Class model names. They replaced the R107 SL-Class and, in turn, were subsequently replaced by the R230 in 2001. Based on the shortened floorpan of the Mercedes-Benz W124 saloon, the R129 featured many innovative details for the time; for example, electronically controlled shock absorbers (optional) and a hidden, automatically extending roll-over bar. The level of standard equipment was high, with electrically operated windows, mirrors, seats and convertible hood. 

This 1997 SL320 Automatic is presented in Azurite Blue with contrasting Mushroom trim and is a striking example with the roof down or with the additional hard top roof in place. With new tyres, a comprehensive service history from both Mercedes-Benz and other specialists, accompanying original handbooks and MoT test certificate until February 2015, this represents outstanding value. With reasonably low mileage and just three former keepers recorded, this is an excellent opportunity to purchase a modern classic ready for the spring, leave the hard top in the garage (on the included stand) until next winter, and get out on the road with the wind in your hair.

Interested parties should satisfy themselves as to the description and condition of each lot prior to the sale. Buyers are advised to inspect the car in person or use a professional to carry out this service.
