2001 Mercedes-Benz R129 SL320 with Java Leather (234)

Allanite Green (008) with Java Leather (234) / SL320


Principal Facts:

A rare opportunity to acquire one of the last limited edition R129 SLs – The Designo Heritage Edition. Finished in Allanite Green with Java Leather interior with embossed Designo script, this car is one of just 49 allocated to the UK back in 2001.

The Designo Heritage Edition was available in either SL280 or SL320 guise, and it would seem that the designers had a crystal ball in the office at the time – this colour combination has aged so well that it’s fully back in fashion today.

Condition Synopsis:

Overall in excellent condition, but the clear panels in the soft top do need to be replaced due to cracks which are beginning to split. Once that's been rectified, many happy miles (whatever the weather) await the next owner.

History File:

A thick history file accompanies this car, but one document stands out from all the invoices, service records and usual history that would accompany a car of this grade. That stand out sheet of A4 being a letter from TfL (Transport for London, if you weren't sure) confirming that this car meets the required standard for London ULEZ, thus avoiding the daily £12.50 fee allowing you to waft about the capital with a smug grin.

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?
