1992 500 SL - Barons Tuesday 4th June 2019 For Sale by Auction
The basic Mercedes R129 model was the 190 bhp 2.8 L inline 6 280SL with 12 valves. The 228 hp 3.0 L inline 6 with 24 valves is known as the 300SL 24v. But it was the 322 hp 500SL, with a 5.0 L V8 engine, which made the most headlines. The specification was high, with electric windows, mirrors, seats and roof. The R129 model was the first convertible/roadster to offer the automatic roll-bar deployment in event of rollover. The driver can also manually raise and lower the roll-bar should he choose to. This facilitates the clean look of R129 without compromising the occupant's safety.
