With a 0-60mph time of 6.1 seconds, 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 features many new and innovative ideas of 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 make 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.

Presented in pearlescent green/black coachwork complemented by a Napa leather interior, this elegant Mercedes-Benz comes with a recent MoT test certificate (valid until April 2015) and road fund license as well an HPI certificate detailing a Category D insurance claim (damaged/repaired). Additional benefits include an Alpine six CD multi-changer, fully adjustable memory and contoured seats, a burr walnut trim that is also applied to the steering wheel.  Further refinements include fully refurbished alloy wheels and a matching hardtop. Importantly, the owner's wallet contains a service history book detailing a complete and documented service history from day one right up to 754 miles ago. Affordable and supremely luxurious touring.

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.
