1999 Mercedes-Benz R129 SL600 with Grey Nappa Leather (238)

Blue Black Metallic (199) with Grey Nappa Leather (238) / SL600


Principal Facts:

The SL600 was the peak of the R129 range, offering the luxury of a V12 power plant with everything the SL had to offer at the time. Fitted with the legendary M120 6.0 litre engine,the SL600 produced an impressive 402hp. This engine would go on to be used in automotive greats including the CLK GTR Le Mans car and Pagani Zonda, akin to having royal DNA in the car world!

Condition Synopsis:

The Blue Black Metallic paintwork (protected at the front, and the lower sills, by PPF) combined with the grey leather interior make for a striking looking car, and from the first turn of the key this SL is every inch the range-topper that it was back in 1999. Incredibly expensive when new, these cars are now very hard to find in such good condition with such good provenance - a lovely car inside and out and surely one to put away for the future… This superb example shows just 63,000 miles and was always serviced at Mercedes-Benz Ipswich before arriving at SLSHOP - where it was immediately purchased by a local collector and squirrelled away seeing very little use.

I have followed SLSHOP with interest for some years now and recently took the plunge and purchased my dream car – they did not disappoint!
The whole experience from start to finish was superb. Their communication was excellent and they kept me
informed every step of the way. Thank you and I look forward to my next purchase!

I have just purchased a 280SL from SLSHOP. I have already purchased several parts from SLSHOP and have found all members of staff most helpful and it is more like dealing with a club than a commercial enterprise I would highly recommend using SLSHOP for cars, parts and most importantly impartial advice.

They put up with my indecision, inexperience and last minute demands and my car is the best thing I’ve ever bought. The most impressive thing about them is the after care though. Nothing is ever too much trouble and they’ve given me the best advice to make sure I get the most out of my car. Can you tell I’m obsessed with them all?
