It is easy to see why the Mercedes SL model, with its manufacturer codename of R129, was to prove a best seller during a build run that lasted from 1989 to 2002. Launched as a two-door, two-seater roadster with an automated textile roof and a shell like, colour matched, powered tonneau cover. The new model was delivered with an impressive number of standard features and included many innovative details including the option of electronically controlled damping and a hidden, automatically extending rollover bar.
This lovely example is presented in Mystic Blue with a black leather interior and comes with the highly desirable panoramic glass separate hardtop and a new blue soft top hood which is electrically operated. This car also comes with Xenon lights, split rim wheels, air conditioning, heated front seats and has just had a full service which was carried out in September 2020. With a good history, an MoT test certificate which expires in May 2021 and looking as good as it does, this Mercedes-Benz still brings so much joy to any owner who prefers the refined open top driving experience.
