The Mercedes-Benz R 129 280 SL Roadster

The world premiere of the new SL 129 series was one of the main attractions of the Geneva Motor Show in March 1989. With the predecessor models of the series 107 the completely newly constructed types 300 SL, 300 SL 24 and 500 SL had practically nothing in common apart from the overall concept. Just as the 350 SL had demonstrated automotive progress 18 years ago with a wealth of innovative design details, the 129 Series SL was a new car in every sense. The new SL generation impressed with its harmonious and extremely successful stylistic design, which expressed dynamism and sportiness, but also comfort and elegance. On the one hand, the design was tradition-oriented and, on the other hand, had farewell to the future thanks to the design of new detail solutions. For example, the radiator grille, the legendary trademark of the SL types, was stylistically reinterpreted while retaining the traditional basic form. While in the predecessor types the wide chrome frame dominated with the star, the radiator cowling was now organically integrated into the bonnet; The star as a unique chrome decoration of the car had been supplemented by horizontal slats of anodized aluminum. 

Significant improvements over the predecessor models could be achieved in terms of passive safety. With a high development effort, it was possible to realize the exemplary safety standard achieved in the saloons and coupes in the SL as well. The lack of a roof structure had a fundamentally different from the closed variants body structure and thus requires intensive development work. The desired dimensional stability of the passenger compartment could be achieved in the interaction of different structural elements. These included, above all, a particularly rigid floor system with high-strength sheets and large beam cross-sections as well as rigid transitions from the A pillars and the rear side panels to the lateral side rails. A key role was also played by the doors, which functioned as a pressure-tight connection between the front wall and center pillars through ingenious beading of the door inner part, thereby contributing to the survival of collisions. The 2.8-liter engine of the SL 280 was used since October 1992 in the 124 series and the S-Class sedan 300 SE 2.8 and outperformed the larger displacement two-valve from the M 103 family in terms of power and torque, without higher fuel consumption exhibit. The 3.2-liter unit of the SL 320, which had already proven itself since March 1991 in the S-Class models 300 SE and 300 SEL, had the nominal power remained the same compared to the previous four-valve, but was 900 / min reached earlier; the torque maximum was significantly higher and was also shifted to lower speeds. Overall, with the new six-cylinder engines, a significant improvement in the performance characteristics and refinement was achieved. The SL 280 was the only type of the series still available with 5-speed manual transmission. 

The R129 280 SL Roadster offered here is most likely unique in this world in this form. With an original 3,204 kilometers mileage since its first registration in October 1997 on the still only previous owner near Dortmund, such a vehicle is a sensation for collectors in this day and age. Over the years, this 280 SL has been maintained and stored expertly despite the shutdown and so it is not surprising that the car even after more than 20 years since its delivery still presented in an absolutely perfect new condition. The vehicle was presented to the TÜV in December last year and completed this without any objection. This Mercedes-Benz R129 280 SL promises its new owner a probably more than unique experience, because one thing is for sure. Time travel has never been more fun.
