Unveiled at the March 1989 Geneva Motor Show, the new Mercedes-Benz R129 series SL range was beautifully engineered. Based around a two door monocoque bodyshell, its sophisticated, all-round independent suspension (double-wishbone front/five-link rear) was augmented by a host of active and passive safety features including electronic stability control, ventilated ABS disc brakes, adaptive-damping shock absorbers and an integral rollover bar that deployed in less than a third of a second if the car ever sensed an impending flip. Suitably cosseting, the convertible's impeccably built cabin consisted of a fully automated power hood and featured such advancements as memory seats, electric windows/mirrors and an adjustable steering column. Yet lurking beneath all the luxury and refinement was a performance orientated sports car.
We are delighted to offer this low mileage Mercedes-Benz 300 SL in excellent condition, finished in champagne with a contrasting beige leather interior. The soft-top is in good order and operates as it should, also supplied with the car is a hard-top in equally fine condition. This pleasing Mercedes-Benz is supplied with a V5C registration document and has an MoT test certificate valid until the end of September 2019. Accompanying the car is a good sized history file which includes an abundance of receipts, mostly from Mercedes-Benz main agents. Representing superb value for money, this highly usable modern day sports car is already regarded as a design classic.
