Replacing the long running R107 SL range the R129 series was produced from 1989 to 2002. It was the first SL model to have standard an electro hydraulically operated folding soft top. Offered throughout production with a choice of 6, 8 and 12 cylinder engines the car was much more advanced than its replacement and is still a very usable car today.
We are pleased to offer this 1997 500SL finished in Imperial Red with Beige Perforated Leather seats. A later facelifted model fitted with the 5 speed automatic gearbox, the car has had just one lady owner from new and has covered just 71,000 miles.
Purchased from Mercedes Newcastle, unusually the car has been returned to them for the majority of servicing and repairs, most as recent as this year. The service book has 15 entries by them and the MOT history goes right back to the first one in 2000, all invoices are within the history file.
The car has the complete book pack present which contains the original Mercedes Datacard. This Datacard confirms the options ordered as follows:-
Imperial Red with Beige Leather trim
8 hole alloy wheels
Heated front seats with memory
Electronic Stability Programme
Adaptive Damping System
Headlamp wash wipe
The original bill of sale is also present and shows in addition to the above the installation of a CD autochanger and a vehicle Tracker, the cost back then was a staggering £86,310.
Externally, the bodywork can only be described as excellent with flawless paintwork which extends to the removable hardtop and the newly refurbished diamond cut alloy wheels. Inside the car you can immediately tell how well this car has been cared for. The seats show minimal usage and the overmats cover the perfect original beige carpets. The original soft top has ultra clear Perspex and the beige headlining is as new.
On the road, the car performs as good as it looks, the V8 engine pulls strong through the automatic transmission. Steering is dead straight ahead with no vibration and the recently renewed brakes pull up straight and sharp with no judder.
These SL models are now recognised as the next big thing in the Mercedes classic world due to the recent massive increases in the predecessor models, the Pagoda and 107 series. To find a one owner, low mileage SL500 in such a nice condition as this is very difficult and the effort to view the car should be taken to see just how good it is.
