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 was augmented by a host of active and passive safety features including electronic stability control, ventilated ABS disc brakes, adaptive-damping shock absorbers, front airbags 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 included 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.
This lovely example is presented in black with matching black full leather trim. Sitting on the optional AMG alloy wheels with matching electric hood, the car was originally supplied by HMG Bromley in 31st March 1992, details of which can be found in the comprehensively stamped original service booklet. This Roadster is offered in the sought after and extremely rare triple black colour combination and offers ideal summer motoring. The current MoT test certificate is valid until June 2021 and the history file also includes old MoT certificates together with Mercedes book pack and other invoices. An example of an appreciating and very usable modern classic.
