When Mercedes launched their SL R129 in 1989, they raised the bar for open top roadsters. For many a design masterpiece created by designer chief Bruno Sacco and the last wich sported the plastic “sacco” sideskirts. Technically they used every trick in the book featuring for example an automatically extending roll-over bar and seats with integrated seat belts. At the launch at the Geneve auto show interest was that huge that production couldn’t keep up with demand resulting in huge delivery delays.
The 91 SL500 we have on offer was at the time the epitome of the SL range. A V8 engine wich produced 326 hp coupled to a 4speed automatic gearbox delivered a subtle and smooth ride, worthy of the SL name.
This SL delivered new to a German customer, is a one owner car and is accompanied by full dealer service history and stamped service booklet. Bearing its original Bornite metallic paintwork together with an immaculate anthracite leather interior. Other options are the sought after rear seat, heat reducing windscreen.
In short we can say that the overall appearance of this classic is of exceptional beauty and can only be a solid investment known to a Mercedes Benz SL. Another as fine example of a car in such preserved condition will be hard to find.
