Launched in 1989, Mercedes’ R129 SL was an engineering tour de force with sharp styling and extensive use of technology. All were accompanied by a removable hardtop which is electrically locked into place and creates what is effectively a GT coupé for the winter months. But they were really designed to be enjoyed with the roof down and with Mercedes’ focus on safety at the time, following extensive research, it was the first car to feature a pop-up rollover bar which, when combined with the strengthened A pillar structure, created what was claimed to be the world’s safest soft top.
This wonderful example is presented very well indeed and was previously part of a private collection for some time covering just 6,000 miles in the last fourteen years and just over 31,000 miles in total. Offered in very good order throughout this Mercedes is reported to run and drive very well indeed and also benefits from a major maintenance service at significant cost. Accompanying the car is a comprehensive service history, various MoT test certificates, sundry bills, and its UK registration document. This example is one of the lowest mileage examples you will find and, having led a low-stress life, will surely have many more miles and years of enjoyment to offer!
