About This Car

1999 Mercedes-Benz SL500 (R129)

Azurite Blue Metallic (366) Grey Nappa Leather (238)

78,000 miles

The Mercedes-Benz R129 class of SL was the end of an era, the last of the dinosaurs and an example of the very best in automotive engineering, luxury and build quality, the likes of which haven’t been seen since. From the heft of the door handle, to the weight of the steering and the reassuring burble of that V8 engine, a high calibre R129 really is something to behold.

Here at SLSHOP we only supply the very finest R129 examples, taking only a small sample of the cars we are offered to display in the showroom. Shown here is a 1998 5.0 litre V8 SL in the beautiful colour of Azurite Blue Metallic over Grey Nappa. This stunning car doesn’t just impress from outside, inside there’s almost every option including heated seats, half wood steering wheel and panoramic glass roof.

An extensive service history accompanies the car, and with just 78,000 miles showing this is a car that can be used and enjoyed. The right car, in the right colour, with just the right options. Simply wonderful.

Where will your Mercedes-Benz take you?

Bulkhead Corrosion

Although the R107 is renowned for build quality, there is one chink in the armour – the bulkhead. Many cars that present well from the outside are hiding internal rust. Water from outside the car should drain out through specially designed channels, but over time, these become blocked forcing water inside the car. Once water has breached the blower motor cover in front of the windscreen, it slowly wreaks havoc from inside out. This delicate area did not have rust protection from the factory, and as the metal deteriorates it the water ingress can lead to faulty electrics, damp carpets and musty smells inside the cabin.

All our cars come with a 36 month bulkhead warranty.
