Regarded as one of Stuttgart's finest designs, the R129 offers superb touring credentials in a package which is firmly in the modern classic category.
The ultimate 90s cruiser, the R129 almost took the accolade of car of the year at launch. First introduced to the world in 1989 with production running until 2001, the boxy body and alloys were a step-change in the design from the R107 and hold their own place in history now.
The early SL320's come equipped with the robust 229BHP inline-6, offering a top speed of 149MPH. Legendary designer Bruno Sacco was the man responsible for the handsome angles and scale of the car, and these early editions with their period two-tone exterior styling are often favourites for enthusiasts.
This lovely example has been owned by Nick for the past 6 years, it was previously owned by a Mercedes-Benz mechanic and boasts an impressive history of main dealer care. Finished in "Smoke Silver" over "Mushroom" leather, and with the mileage at a fair ~83,000 miles, just two previous owners and years and year of servicing history from Mercedes-Benz makes for a smart package coming to auction.
This auction listing was written from information supplied by Jacob after meeting Nick the owner, and having visited and photographed the vehicle.
