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 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 example was registered in August 1992 and presents well in Pearl Blue metallic with a contrasting mushroom leather interior. With only four previous owners, this car has covered 46,000 miles whilst retaining a full Mercedes-Benz service history throughout. With the original Blaupunkt Canberra radio/cassette player adding to the cars originality, this 300SL-24 has the additional specification of drivers airbag, air conditioning, electrically adjustable seats and eight hole 16" alloy wheels. Supplied with its original removable hardtop and extensive history file, service booklet and book pack, we are told that this R129 SL drives extremely well. Offered to auction with a V5C registration document and a current MoT test certificate.
