1996 Mercedes-Benz SL500 (1996)




The R129 Mercedes SL was constructed between 1989 and 2002 and is considered probably the best built SL of them all. Their reputation for strength and reliability is wholly deserved and this particular example demonstrates the ‘hewn from stone’ feeling for which they are famous.

First registered in February 1996 this is a highly specified SL500 model is fitted with a 5 litre 322 bhp V8 engine and automatic transmission which propel this convertible effortlessly without any fuss. The cream leather interior is beautifully presented and the hard top and blue soft top are both in immaculate condition. The specification continues with heated electric memory seats, electrically adjustable steering wheel, climate control, CD player and GSM telephone.

Originally supplied in the UK, this SL has had only 7 owners from new, the most recent since December 2007. The Mercedes has been cherished and has received significant expenditure in recent years maintaining its excellent overall condition. The last owner exported the SL to Germany from where it has recently returned and will be re-registered in the UK in the name of the next fortunate owner.

This delightful SL is supplied with owner’s manual pack including stamped service book and sundry old MoT certificates and invoices along with copies of previous UK registration documents and current German registration papers.
