Mercedes-Benz SL500 1994


Specifications


Description

The Mercedes-Benz R129 SL Roadsters were produced from 1989 through 2002.

The 1989 Mercedes-Benz SL was a revolution for its maker. At a stroke, it banished the 1970s styling of its predecessor. It was such a successful styling job, that the R129 remained in production for more than a decade, and still looked fresh at the end of its life. But the SL's beauty was more than skin deep - it was packed with technology.

In Hollywood, during the 1990s, if you wanted a top-dollar convertible with equal parts performance, prestige, and engineering excellence, there was the Mercedes-Benz SL, and there was everything else. Even today, this SL is a fixture in the movie business, the choice of aspiring screenwriters on the way up and of worn-out producers on the way down.

The secret to the SL's appeal in Hollywood during the 1990s was the same formula that endures today. It delivers understated German luxury and a reliable powertrain. During an era when exotic cars were comparatively thin on the ground, this SL-Class was the most practical and easiest-to-drive sporting automobile you could buy.

Do not delay on this one – this 500SL Convertible is a truly awesome piece of engineering and a good low mileage one is not only hard to find but a also good investment.

Car will be sold WOF'd and Registered.
