"The in-house model name at Mercedes-Benz for the SL launched in 1989 was the R129 and were produced until 2002. Launched as a two door, two-seater roadster with an automated textile roof with a shell like, colour matched powered tonneau cover. This new model featured many innovative details for the time including the option of electronically controlled damping and a hidden, automatically extending roll-over bar. Delivered with an impressive number of standard features and a removable hardtop, this new model was to prove a best seller during its successful 13 year production.
This limited edition Designo example is presented in metallic blue with a bespoke black Nappa leather interior. One of only 50 cars produced for the UK market, this attractive roadster comes with its factory hardtop and an impressive service history. Presented to auction with a V5C registration document and an MoT test certificate which expires in July 2020, this low mileage example has been well looked after by the owner and has covered a mere 59,803 miles from new. This desirable Mercedes-Benz should command serious attention given its sensible estimate."
