In one form or another, Mercedes-Benz has been producing a two-seat sporty convertible since 1954 under the SL-Class moniker (SL standing for â??Sport Leicht,â?ť or â??Sport Lightweightâ?ť in English). The cars have always been popular standard bearers, and have combined sporty touring qualities with comfort and quality. The R129 version of the Mercedes-Benz SL is no exception. The new R129 design received a state-of-the-art adjustable sport-luxury suspension and an all-new chassis. Twin A-arm front and fully independent multi-link rear suspension, four-wheel disc brakes, and a complete unibody chassis defined the new SL. Safety features included an automatic roll bar that was designed to extend in the event of a rollover accident. All SL-Class cars in this era were delivered with a cloth convertible top and a removable aluminum hardtop. The 500SL features a 5.0-liter overhead cam V-8 engine at 322 hp, with a four-speed automatic transmission, and when new carried a MSRP of nearly $100k. This example has been well maintained over the years, and comes with over $7k in receipts for services over the past few years. This car runs and drives excellent, and recently completed a road trip over 1,000 miles with no troubles. New brakes, new soft top, new fuel pump, fresh interior and exterior detailing, and much more. Summer is coming, this can provide some sunny thrills for you and one lucky passenger! Reasonable offers always considered. We can assist with shipping and financing. We sell world-wide!
