This SL500 is a very desirable example of the R129 series. An eight-cylinder car with just 33,212 miles from new, excellent history, perfect colours and a panoramic hard top.
First registered in September 1997, this is, for many, the most desirable year of R129 500 as it retains the early, more powerful M119 engine but benefits from the later, considerably more flexible, 722.6 electronically controlled five-speed automatic. It is the most potent of the 500s.
First supplied by Mercedes dealer, Derwent Vehicles of Leeds, the 500 was well equipped with memory seats, half-wood steering wheel and the desirable panoramic hard top. It was finished in arguably one of the best combinations, Azurite Blue with Mushroom leather.
This SL has covered just 33k miles from new with a Full Service History, comprising predominantly of its supplying main dealer and one specialist. All books and manuals.
It was last serviced at 33,018 miles (A Service) and previously had a ‘B Service’ including gearbox fluid and filter change, brake fluid and coolant change.
The MoT history also confirms the very low mileage and how well it’s been cared for with not a single fail recorded.
Clear HPI Certificate.
In terms of condition, the car is exceptional. The paintwork is superb. The panoramic roof is unmarked. The wheels are without blemish and wearing matching Continental tyres all round. The interior is beautiful, as the photos show, commensurate with the car’s low mileage. Original MB stereo with factory over mats. The hood is original and unmarked.
Similarly, the driving experience confirms what a well looked after car this is – tight and crisp in line with its mileage and with the prodigious power that makes these 500s such a fabulous GT car.
It isn’t often that you find a car that ticks so many boxes - the perfect engine, specification, colours and mileage. Quite simply, a superb car all round.
