Lot 282 - 1994 Mercedes-Benz SL320
|Sold - £5,943
Following the resounding success of the R107, the R129 Mercedes-Benz SL had a rather tough act to follow, and it still had to carry on the tradition of a fast and reliable grand touring convertible. The advantage designers had with the R129 was technology. By the time the final car rolled off the production line in 1989, these earlier models had been in production for 18 years with very little change. Therefore, the new SL featured many new and innovative ideas, such as controlled electronic damping, automatically expanding roll-over bar and a more modern multi-link rear axle. In addition to this was a fully operating electric hood, windows, door mirrors and seats, which made this model easy and comfortable to operate. The SL boasted a more powerful engine and the stopping power was aided by anti-locking braking for added reassurance.
Registered new on 8th March 1994 this well-presented example is finished in Diamond Blue metallic with full beige leather interior. In good order throughout the coachwork is good as is the interior. Offered with a wind guard for top-down driving and fitted with both hard and soft tops as well as a hardtop stand. The vendor reports that the Mercedes runs very well and comes complete with AMG wheels as part of the high specification this example enjoys. The straight six 3.2 litre engine runs very well and the Mercedes comes with a large history file containing service books, two keys, a current UK registration document and a valid MoT test certificate. Also included is the private registration number. Superb open top motoring ready for the coming summer months.
