Following the resounding success of the R107, the R129 Mercedes-Benz SL had a rather tough act to follow, and it still had to carry on the tradition of a fast and reliable grand touring convertible. The advantage designers had with the R129 was technology. By the time the final car rolled off the production line in 1989, these earlier models had been in production for 18 years with very little change. Therefore the new SL featured many new and innovative ideas, such as controlled electronic damping, automatically expanding roll-over bar and a more modern multi-link rear axle. In addition to this was a fully operating electric hood, windows, door mirrors and seats, which made this model easy and comfortable to operate. The SL boasted a more powerful engine and the stopping power was aided by anti-locking braking for added reassurance.
Originally registered in August 1995 this very well presented SL320 is offered in Emerald metallic with full cream leather and is accompanied by the desirable matching hard top option. The history file includes comprehensively stamped service booklet and recent service invoices demonstrating a good degree of careful ownership together with old MoT certificates. Accompanied by an MoT test certificate until August 2018 and leather owners pack this is the ideal summer purchase in which to enjoy top down motoring in comfort and style. Offered at no reserve, this SL320 is certainly worth inspection.
