1995 MERCEDES SL500 R129

The R129 series of the infamous Mercedes SL range are often known as the most under-rated model run of the prolific “Mercedes sports”. Providing classic looks while remaining practical and delivering the best of “Mercedes of old” bullet proof reliability. First registered with the first owner before fir U.K. registration in July 1996.

This 1995 Model is of the cross over year to the face lift. packed with an enormous amount of equipment while being fitted with the (arguably prettier) 8-hole alloy wheels fitted to most 1994-1995 models. Presented to you in a very desirable colour combination of silver over black hide and black mohair hood (original hard top is also supplied).

So – The equipment. It is staggering really that a car of this age could be supplied with so much. Electric windows, Power steering, electrically adjustable memory/ heated seats, cruise control, Air conditioning, ADS( adjustable air suspension), ABS,  ASR (traction control), CD/FM/AM stereo, wind deflector, electrically operated mohair hood, heated rear screen (hard top), headlamp washers, remote central locking etc to name a few. Most of which were options at the time and all of which operate correctly!

The car itself is in exceptional condition for its age. remaining a low owner car (just 2 former keepers) while having covered just 83000 miles from new verified through the vehicles history file including the original service book, old MOT’s and the sheer quality of the car.

This vehicle has just been newly refreshed after only being used sparingly for some time. We purchased the vehicle from Scotland while it needed attention to the air suspension. The front of the vehicle’s damping system wasn’t working correctly so as a result it was booked into MB service centre Nottingham (Ex Mercedes technicians) who quickly diagnosed the problem as being the front suspension spheres. These were then replaced along with the oil filled engine mounts which had gone soft, an A/C switch replacement and vehicle check over. As a result this vehicle is now faultless to operate.

Supplied to you with on spotless 8-hole alloy wheels with Michelin tires mounted all around. original jack, spare wheel (with original tire fitted) and wheel brace.

It is clear when studying this vehicle that not only has it been properly cared for it also boasts good provenance of being a low mileage, low owner example.

Supplied with its original document wallet and books, 2 sets of keys, original sales brochure and receipt for all work we have had undertaken.

Here is your chance to own a real appreciating, usable modern classic.
