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 superb example is presented in dark blue with cream leather interior, both of which are in excellent condition. It comes with electric heated seats, air conditioning, wind deflector, blue hood and factory hardtop. This lovely SL320 comes with a good service history with a mixture of Mercedes-Benz main dealer and specialist history together with some stamps in the service book. The colour combination of this particular Mercedes-Benz is the most desirable in our opinion and in this condition, surely it must be one of the best available.
