THE MERCEDES-BENZ SL

In 1989 Mercedes-Benz retired its classic Type 107 bodyshell that had been used for a succession of beautiful sports roadsters for almost the preceding 20 years, replacing it with an equally appealing, sleek new design in the modern idiom. This new Type 129 body style was used for three different engine types: 6.0-liter V12, 5.0-liter V8 and 3.0-liter straight six. The 389bhp V12 was used in the 600 SL, delivering a 0-100km/h (62mph) time of 6.1 seconds and a top speed of 156mph. As one might expect, these new SL luxury sports cars were designed to be world leaders in their class and were lavishly equipped in the best Mercedes-Benz tradition.

THE MOTORCAR OFFERED

This gorgeous top of the line roadster was delivered new in California where it would remain for the next twenty years. The car was delivered on October 11th, 1999 in this sleek black on black color scheme. Ordered in the highest specification available, this V12 is loaded with all the creature comforts one would expect from Mercedes-Benz's best. The car is complete with its book and manuals, hard top, and associated hard top stand. A clean CARFAX is on file documenting the cars service history. Already considered a classic, these gorgeous R129 roadsters are being snapped up by collectors, with well-maintained twelve-cylinder examples leading the charge. With under 40,000 miles on the odometer, the next owner can enjoy the effortless power out on the open road or choose to admire it in his garage as its value rises.
