Hilton and Moss are delighted to bring this beautiful Mercedes-Benz R129 SL320 to the market. The R129 series was first revealed at the Geneva Motor show and produced from 1989 up until 2001 with a variety of engine choices and revisions through the years. Thought by many as being the last ‘classic’ SL the R129 series is becoming an increasingly more desirable ‘future classic’ by the day if not a classic already! Heavily revised from the earlier R107 SL’s the R129 was fitted with an advanced multilink rear axle and adaptive damping suspension. This combination resulted in the revolutionary silky smooth ride quality enthusiasts all know and love.
This particular R129 was built in the very last year of production, 2001. Covering just 28,000 miles from new this is quite possibly one of the lowest mileage, most original and best condition R129’s on the market. Finished in Mercedes Brilliant Silver Metallic paint which is entirely unmarked and like new with a full Orion Grey Leather interior this Mercedes looks elegant from every angle. The light grey interior makes the cockpit a pleasant place to be and is a lovely change from the usual black. Being a late facelift example this SL is fitted with the 3.2 litre 18-valve V6 engine which runs perfectly smooth and provides effortless power and torque making the R129 the perfect ‘cruiser’ and an easy rewarding car to drive, perfect for a European tour or Sunday drive but equally useable as an everyday classic! Coming from an enthusiast owner this Mercedes has been looked after and maintained to the highest standard with an very fair service history and regular maintenance throughout its life.
The previous keeper commissioned Hilton and Moss to carry out a ‘no expense spared’ full service and check over of the vehicle in 2020 and the car has covered under 100 miles since. Costing just under £1,600 the service was thorough and ensured the car left our facility in top health. The vehicle in 03/21 has received all new front and rear brake discs and pads all supplied from Mercedes-Benz genuine parts.
This particular R129 has a lovely back story being an ex-demonstrator/display car for Mercedes-Benz. This roll meant the car was ordered to a very high specification including
-Climate control & AC
-Electric seats with memory
-Electric folding door mirrors
-Electric steering column adjustment
-17’’ alloy wheels.
This Mercedes-Benz is supplied with a healthy history file documenting its past along with previous MOT certificates to support the cars low mileage. Various parts and maintenance invoices are present along with an genuine Mercedes-Benz Data Card.
This is a rare opportunity to own a very well kept, well optioned classic Mercedes SL320. Cars with such mileage very rarely come up for sale and the condition of this R129 is second to none. If you are looking for a usable but pristine example look no further.
