In 1989, Mercedes-Benz introduced the fourth generation SL model, the R129, which was supplied in Europe with several engine options and named accordingly. The basic model was the 190hp three litre, inline six-cylinder 300 SL with 12 valves, and the 228hp three litre, inline six-cylinder with 24 valves, known as the 300 SL 24. However, it was the 322hp 500 SL with a five litre V8 engine which made the headlines, only surpassed by the flagship 600 SL with its V12 engine. The specification was high with electric windows, mirrors, seats and roof. The R129 model was the first convertible/roadster to offer the automatic roll-bar deployment in event of rollover, although the motorist could also manually raise and lower the roll-bar should they choose to, thus facilitating the clean look of the R129 without compromising the occupant's safety.

Presented in classic burgundy with a beige leather interior, this 24 valve SL300 has covered 91,676 miles since new. Specified with matching hardtop. Supplied with an MoT test certificate until July 2023 and V5C registration document.

Interested parties should note that the hood is currently inoperable due to the anti-roll bar being stuck in the upright position, we can hear the clicks from the function but the hydraulics appear to be faulty disabling the ability to use the hard/soft top at this juncture and would require some attention.
