The 4973cc, R129 Mercedes-Benz SL500 carried on the tradition of the fast and reliable grand touring convertible from Mercedes-Benz. Born out of the earlier 500SL models, the new SL500 featured many new and innovative ideas for the time such as controlled electronic damping, automatically expanding roll over bar and a more modern multi link rear axle. A fully operating electric hood, windows, door mirrors and seats made this model easy and comfortable to operate. With powerful engines, stopping power was aided by anti-locking braking for reassurance. During 1995, a mild facelift was carried out to the model range that included revisions to the head lights, tail lights and several new features adopted as standard including side air bags, automatic climate control and ESP.
We are pleased to present this low mileage left hand drive 1994 Mercedes-Benz SL500 in very smart condition. It is offered with the optional factory hardtop with the additional benefit of a hard top stand and we are informed that the soft top has never been used on the open road. The Eco automatic gearbox offers sport or economy settings allowing for a sporty drive if desired or a more frugal fuel consumption if economy is selected; an advantage especially in these times of high fuel prices. The SL is resplendent in pear white with contrasting black leather and is further complimented by a set of AMG wheels. The SL was imported from Japan earlier this year and is now UK registered it also has an MoT test certificate valid until July 2015 and current road fund licence until the end of December 2014.
With a very enticing estimate, this Mercedes-Benz SL500 is surely too tempting to miss.
