The fourth generation, R129 Series of iconic Mercedes-Benz SL models was launched at the 1989 Geneva Motorshow to critical acclaim.

Beautifully engineered, the R129 SL range bristled with technical refinement including an automated electro/hydraulic collapsible soft-top that with the touch of a button takes just 30 seconds to raise and lower.

With typically Germanic thoroughness, the new SL had been exhaustively developed and tested. Mercedes-Benz also introduced an innovative world first safety feature in the R129 series with a hidden, automatically extending roll-over bar that activates within a split second in the event of a rollover.

Equipped with independent suspension all round, adaptive damping, ventilated disc brakes with ABS and electronic stability control, the R129 series perfectly blended industry leading tech with the signature SL drive.

Offered here is an Australian delivered second generation SL 280, sold new by Chateau Moteur Mercedes-Benz, Adelaide in April of 1997 optioned in Azurite Blue with colour coded bumpers over Navy Leather and walnut trim.

In very original condition, this especially usable modern classic carries all the hallmarks of a well-kept car from the brilliant condition of the leather steering wheel to the typically Germanic precision form-fit of the interior leathers across the dash and door panels, the factory radio still equipped as well as the gun barrel straight bodywork.

Accompanying the car is the complete set of original owner’s manuals bound within the Mercedes-Benz embossed leather wallet, the warranty cars with build information and the original key.

Available at a fraction of its original selling price, this exceptional SL 280 delivers an unrivalled classic driving experience, perfect for livening up the daily commute or long distance weekend trips away.

In fantastic condition and accompanied by an extensive history file this SL 280 is one to own, drive and invest in. Never available for long this grand tourer is perfectly prepped to drive off the showroom floor.
