EXTERIOR
This attractive R129 looks great in bright metallic silver always a great choice for a Mercedes of any vintage. Although not entirely flawless the lustrous paintwork is very presentable throughout, showing just a handful of discreet blemishes on very close inspection. Pleasingly there are no signs of corrosion to the body, with all light lenses remaining clear and free from moisture ingress. The removable aluminium hardtop presents well but there are some defects to the soft-top which the new keeper may wish to address.

INTERIOR
Boasting the desirable rear seat option this SLs pre-facelift cabin retains plenty of period charm. The Anthracite leather has worn especially well, with only light wear to the drivers bolster hinting at the cars age. Aside from only very light marking to the wood trim atop the centre console the cabin is in excellent shape throughout. Commonly worn/damaged items like the spectacle box lid, centre console storage covers, and adjustable armrest all look great and present without fault. In the boot area youll find the original Mercedes tool roll, first aid kit, removable wind deflector, and matching alloy spare wheel.

ENGINE AND TRANSMISSION
The venerable 24v straight-six starts without fuss and idles up to temperature smoothly. The four-speed auto box operates with ease, handling the engines power perfectly on test. A fresh service has recently been carried out at the current mileage and the MOT is valid until July 2020 with no advisories.

WHEELS, TYRES AND BRAKES
The Mercedes sits on classic eight-hole alloys, all in nice original condition. Some signs of wear are visible on close inspection, but nothing untoward for the age, although a perfectionist may choose to refurb. The wheels are shod in high quality Pirelli tyres with plenty of tread all round; the rears were replaced in March 2018 at 58k miles.

HISTORY FILE
The SL was first registered in September 1991. It was sold new in Singapore and boasts a complete supplying-dealer service history up until 41k miles. Since arriving in the UK back in 1998 it has been used sparingly in the hands of only three additional keepers, with the odometer now reading just 59k miles.

We have recently had the SL fully inspected, serviced and MOTd for the new keepers piece of mind, with only a small amount of mechanical work having been required prior to sale. Such items included replacing the heater motor assembly and renewing both front lower balljoint gators. The MOT certificate is complete with no advisories and is valid until July 2020.
