This UK-supplied SL500 presents magnificently in elegant Blue Black Metallic. The gunmetal paintwork retains an impeccably sharp finish and is wonderfully glossy throughout following a full machine polish upon arrival with us. On close inspection there are almost no blemishes to be found, with no scrapes or scuffs and only the lightest of stone chips at the front end. This minor facelift example is finished in the correct two-tone paint scheme and sports clear front indicators. All panels are nice and straight along both sides and the removable hardtop is pristine. With the roof off the electric soft-top operates without fault. Better still, the underside is also remarkably fresh and without rust. This has to be one of cleanest UK SL500s we have seen here at 4 Star.
Mushroom upholstery gives a welcome contrast, the leather presenting in excellent condition throughout. Even after 58k miles worth of use there is only very light wear on the driver’s bolster. The electrically adjustable seats are equipped with memory for added convenience, and this example also boasts the desirable rear seat option. The glossy walnut trim is undamaged throughout and the original Mercedes radio is still in place. All in all, a wonderful place to be.
ENGINE AND TRANSMISSION
The Mercedes 5-litre V8 is a perfect complement to the R129. With effortless power delivery and a smooth auto ‘box, the SL500 is a capable long distance cruiser that’s equally suited to daily use. With a mere 58k miles to its name the engine of this example remains in fine fettle having been recently serviced and freshly inspected at the current mileage. Out on the road the car performs faultlessly.
WHEELS, TYRES AND BRAKES
The SL sits on its original 16-inch 8-hole alloys, all in great condition with only the lightest of curb marking to report on very close inspection. The finish is still notably bright, and the centre badges are without any wear. The wheels are shod in good quality tyres all round, with Avons at the rear and brand new Pirellis at the front. The brakes perform well on test.
The SL500 was first registered in September 1994. It was supplied new by Lancaster Mercedes who went on to carry out the first six services up until 29k miles. All subsequent maintenance work has been carried out by marque specialists, with the most recent service having been done within the last 400 miles. The car has just returned from a full inspection, and boasts a clean bill of health. Services have been carried out at the following mileages: 9k, 12k, 16k, 19k, 25k, 29k, 34k, 41k, 53k, and most recently at the current mileage of 58k.
