Mercedes-Benz SL320 2001 (Y) Silver
The new Mercedes-Benz R129 SL-class was designed by in house designer Bruno Sacco and launched at the 1989 Geneva Motor Show. It was manufactured by Daimler-Benz (latterly Daimler-Chrysler) at their Bremen plant in Germany from 1989 - 2001 and there were a total of 213,089 produced.
The R129 received heightened media attention in Great Britain in 1991 when Diana, Princess of Wales sold her Jaguar XJS to lease a Metallic Red 500 SL and she became the first member of the Royal Family to use a foreign car.
This was not without controversy, as it questioned whether a member of the British Royal Family should drive a foreign car. Media pressure eventually forced her to return the car to Mercedes-Benz in 1992 and it now resides in the Mercedes-Benz Museum in Stuttgart, Germany.
This immaculate Mercedes Benz SL320 Sports Convertible was supplied new by Normand West London and first registered on 13th July 2001. This is ostensibly a One owner car from new with the current owner having bought this ex-demonstrator when it was just 6 months old. It has only covered a genuine and very low 41,192 miles from new and has a Full Mercedes Main dealer & Mercedes specialist - Steve Redfearn service history.
The car really is exceptional in every way and is one of the very last R129's to be produced and has 'unmarked' original Brilliant Silver paintwork, a lovely Black Nappa soft leather interior, Panoramic glass roof Hard Top, its original and excellent condition electrically operated Black Mohair Soft Top, Electric Roll-Over Bar, Wind Deflector, Electric seats, Electric & Folding Door Mirrors, Electric Windows, Mercedes Stereo/10 stack CD player, Wood trim, Heated seats, Power Steering, ABS Brakes, Adjustable Steering column, Adaptive Damping System, Air Conditioning, Air Bag, Alarm/Immobiliser, Remote Central Locking, Cruise Control, Xenon Headlights, 3.2 Litre 18-valve SOHC V6 Engine producing 221 bhp, 5 Speed 5G-Tronic Transmission, Sports Pack 18' AMG Alloy Wheels (8" front & 9" rear) with almost new Dunlop SP Sport tyres + an unused Spare Wheel/Tyre and its original tools and First Aid box.
The car comes with its original Leather Handbook Wallet, all books and manuals including a fully stamped to date Service Book with 12 stamps, all invoices for servicing and works from new, all MOT certificates and MOT history, original Bill of Sale, spec sheet and an original hardback book of the Mercedes SL given to the owner by Mercedes-Benz.
The car is truly outstanding and highly spec'd and it drives beautifully. It was serviced in February 2019 @ 40,914 miles and has only covered 278 miles since. The car has been garaged all of its life and its superior condition is a testament to the care given to the car. It only being sold by the owner now due to his retirement as it just not being used.
This is a car that is rising rapidly in value and at this price, this example constitutes very good value for money.
