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, 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 consisted of a fully automated power hood and featured such advancements as memory seats, electric windows and mirrors and an adjustable steering column. Yet lurking beneath all the luxury and refinement was a performance orientated sports car.
This lovely example of this popular and final R129 model is presented in silver with a black leather interior. It comes with a book pack, service book with ten stamps and was last serviced 600 miles ago in 2020, six invoices can be seen in the history file. The car also comes with its Japanese Mileage Guarantee Certificate verifying its mileage as correct. These, last of the line V6 engined SL’s are extremely popular models today and this particular SL320 represents great value for money considering its original book price.
