Ascot Racecourse, United Kingdom



1993 Mercedes-Benz 500 SL Roadster

The 4973cc, R129 Mercedes-Benz SL500 carried on the tradition of the fast and reliable grand touring convertible from Mercedes-Benz. Borne out of the earlier 500 SL models, the new SL500 featured many new and innovative ideas for the period, such as controlled electronic damping, automatically expanding roll-over bar and a more modern multi-link rear axle. Fully operating electric hood, windows, door mirrors and seats made this model easy and comfortable to operate. With powerful engines, stopping power was aided by anti-locking braking for added reassurance creating a model revered by many the world over.
Imported from Japan, this superb example is presented in silver with black leather interior and comes with its original aluminium factory hardtop. The car has just been reconditioned by the present owner to include refurbished wheels and a pre-delivery inspection. The carโ€™s black electrically operated hood is in โ€˜as new conditionโ€™ according to the owner and it comes with air conditioning with climate control, electric seats, new radio/CD player, new aerial and cruise control. These R129 models are increasing in popularity which will inevitably result in their increase in value over the coming years. German prowess in engineering mixed with their usual quality of manufacturing, results in a touring sports car unmatched by many in the same price bracket. This car comes with a V5 registration document and is probably one of the best examples we have seen, superb in every respect.
