With a 0-60mph time of six seconds, the 4973cc, R129 Mercedes-Benz SL500 carried on the tradition of the fast and reliable grand touring convertible. A fully operating electric hood, windows, door mirrors and seats made this model easy and comfortable to operate. The fifth generation SL was in production between 2002 and 2008 and featured the all-new retractable hardtop - an important feature for those British showers! Mercedes-Benz followers were impressed with the stability of the car with the hardtop in place and the ease at which they could remove it. Such was its success; the SL is still one of the leading cars in the Mercedes-Benz range.

This car features the very capable 5.0 litre 302bhp V8 powerplant mated to a standard automatic gearbox. Originally registered on 29th September 2008, this Mercedes-Benz presents very well in silver. The mileage is modest, having covered only 36,995 miles in its 15 years on British roads. These 5.0 litre convertibles are fabulous to drive, and this is the rarer Sport Edition. Supplied with a V5C registration document and a current MoT test certificate valid until 6th July 2024.
