1997 Mercedes-Benz SL500 (R129) #2313 Vivianite Green with Black Leather

Overview of this Mercedes-Benz

Mercedes-Benz R129 SL500

Vivianite Green Metallic (279) with Black Leather (261) and
Vivianite Green Metallic (279) and Black Fabric Soft Top (740)

Ordered new on 9th September 1997, the initial pro-forma invoice showed a total of £81,420 before an amended invoice was produced to acknowledge a number of dealer discounts. Pencilled on the first invoice is a note stating ‘deal was agreed with no extras to pay for’, hence the second invoice which shows the optional extras of the CD player updated, Radio upgrade, Over Carpets and Hard Top Stand would be included in the revised total of £80,983.26. Perhaps a salesman forgot that he had promised the first owner a discount on the above, and had a ticking off when it came to settling the balance…?

Owned from new by just two careful owners, this exceptional 500SL first wore the registration ‘JSH9’ until it was sold to the current owner when the odometer showed just 14,100 miles.

20,000 meticulous miles later we are proud to offer this beautiful car for sale.

The colour of Vivianite Green Metallic combined with the Brabus alloy wheels make this car truly stand apart. From the factory this car would have worn 12-hole 16 inch wheels, but upon buying the car the current keeper felt that such a bold colour deserved a bold set of wheels, so acquired a rare set of Brabus alloy wheels. (The original set of wheels is also available).

This superbly well cared for R129 has lived a cosseted life. Always garaged and never used as a daily driver, the bulk of the last 10,000 miles has been made up during meticulously planned trips between London and Europe. Owned by a Mercedes-Benz enthusiast, this car usually resides alongside a rather splendid R107 560SL that you may have seen at Brooklands for our 50th anniversary celebrations.

It gives us great pleasure to be able to offer such an unusual and striking R129 SL from a client who we have known and cared for across a number of cars throughout the last few years.

A very fine looking SL, in a fantastic colour and fitted with the right engine.
