The Mercedes Benz SL has always been the benchmark for the Upper-Class Supers Tourer, offering the options of open-top cruising in the summers, with a soft-top for those rainy days and then the removable hard top for those chilly winter days when you just want to be warm and cosy. Our SL in her Burgandy Dress can offer that to you and a lot more which we will get into later….
The SL name has been a large part of the Mercedes history from racing in the 50’s with the likes of Sterling Moss in the 300 SL to the Grand Sport Tourers that we see today with their foldable hard-tops and the Sports Dresses from AMG putting out insane power from their V8’s and V12 in the SL600s. In the history books of Mercedes with the SL range, they have offered straight sixes, but the premium vehicle has basically always been the V8. They also pioneered the pop-up roll bar which is found on our model of the SL and can be but up at a touch of a button. Now that we have a little information on the R129 Series let’s get into the actual car.
This 3-owner car has been well kept over the past 26 years. And with the low mileage of just over 100 000kms this is generally unheard of as they were and are just such easy daily cars to drive. As much as that is important to you the buyer its more about the experience of the drive and this well dress lady can drop her panties when she wants to and will push the boundaries of the legal speeds of our roads this the 5.0L V8 pushing put her 200 plus KWs with ease and shifting smoothly through the slick 5-speed automatic gearbox which was a new development on 1996 for this series, and doing this all in the luxury of the comfort of the tan leather seats with matching plastics and carpets which was really period for the 90s, but has aged well on this Lady. Then the ride, well its like a magical carpet and drives like a Merc should, smooth and soaking up the unevenness of your roads.
And lastly the Styling of this Graciously Age Lady. Even with her age she doesn’t look place amongst she newer siblings with the long sexy lines with the top up or down.
Basically, we are offering you the enthusiast a timeless classic that isn’t just good look but a real pleasure to drive. Give us a call and let’s set you up on your next summer cruise.
Interesting trade-in’s will be considered.
