The fourth generation, R129 Series of Mercedes-Benz's iconic SL models was launched at the 1989 Geneva Motorshow and its iconic status deserves a place in your garage investment portfolio. Here’s why.
Beautifully engineered, the R129 SL range bristled with technical refinement and innovative safety features but more notably this was the first SL that had the muscle to back up its ‘sports car’ label.
Equipped with independent suspension all round, adaptive damping, ventilated disc brakes with ABS and electronic stability control the R129 generation came with a range of sporty engines and more notably offered the auto-industry's first fully automated convertible-top, with detachable hard-top in tow.
Impressively solid construction and quality paired with dynamic performance the SL-class Mercedes-Benz is a mainstay in the car collecting world, and the R129 Generation is arguably the paragon for modern classic drop-top motoring.
Offered here is an Australian delivered R129 SL280 in Zircon Silver over a Black leather trim, delivered new by Sanderson's Mercedes-Benz November of 1996 according to its original bill of sale with just 33,000 kilometres recorded since.
