The Mercedes-Benz SL 500 offered for sale here is one of the rare “Silver Arrow” special editions, of which 1,450 were built exclusively for the American market in 2001. The surcharge was $2,500 (total price: $87,945. 00) and included the following features:

Outside: Silver Arrow Metallic (777), black fabric cover with additional light threads, fender shield with Silver Arrow Lettering, 18-inch BBS Albireo alloy wheels with high-gloss stainless steel anti-run protection, perforated brake discs, silver-painted brake calipers, fenders air intakes with 2 aluminium chrome-gloss fins

Inside: Leather trim black with seat centre and headrests in orion grey, door centre panels and armrest in orion grey, seat centre liner with embossed Silver Arrow logo, centre console and door insert in black maple, Silver Arrow logo on ash lid, switchgear in aluminium structure, instrument cluster with frame in aluminum structure, stainless steel entrance mouldings illuminated with “Silver Arrow” lettering, aluminum pedal set with rubber pins.

The Roadster was built on June 18, 2001 at the Bremen plant and registered to its sole owner in the USA on August 2, 2002. He lived on the paradisiacal island of Hawaii, where the star remained at home until 2013. This year it was imported to Germany by a collector and purchased by its current owner two years later. The SL 500 was registered for the first time in Germany in 2018, so it is currently in second hand.

The detailed and complete service history from Hawaii is available and shows the mileage of 6,557 miles (approx. 10,552 km) up to the sale from the USA to Germany (May 2013). Since 2017, the vehicle has been serviced by a Mercedes-Benz subsidiary and now has only 7,166 miles (approx. 11,533 km) on the speedometer.

The driving feel and condition are unique, everything still feels smooth and almost like new. Thanks to careful care and regular rides, there is no standing damage, the technology works flawlessly. So if you are looking for a rare special edition of the R129 in collector’s condition, you will find it here. But the SL 500 is also great for driving, the engine has just been run in and spoils you with powerful torque and a great character.
