Description

"Unveiled at the March 1989 Geneva Motor Show, the new Mercedes-Benz R129 Series SL range was beautifully engineered. Based around a two-door monocoque bodyshell, its sophisticated, all-round independent suspension (double-wishbone front/five-link rear) was augmented by a host of active and passive safety features including electronic stability control, ventilated ABS disc brakes, adaptive-damping shock absorbers, front airbags and an integral rollover bar that deployed in less than a third of a second if the car ever sensed an impending flip. Suitably cosseting, the convertible's impeccably built cabin consisted of a fully automated power hood and featured such advancements as memory seats, electric windows/mirrors and an adjustable steering column. Yet lurking beneath all the luxury and refinement was a performance orientated sports car.
This lovely example is presented in metallic Azurite Blue with blue Nappa leather interior. It comes with electric adjustable memory front seats, Becker radio, electric hood (blue) and factory hardtop. This car also comes with a good service history which has mainly been carried out by Mercedes-Benz main dealerships, with only a couple of specialists stamps in the service book, which is rare and reassuring. These models are highly desirable and with only 90,000 miles showing on the odometer and presented in good condition throughout, this example surely is a great investment.
