Car History

A very late model SL500 R129 from June 2001, near to end of production where many of these models where specified with all options available. The colour combination of Obsidian Black with Black Nappa Leather is very sought after, combined with the pleasing glass panoramic Hardtop and black soft top. The condition of this SL500 is beautiful in every way, the interior specifications are there to be enjoyed on that European road trip with the help of heated, orthopaedic seats combined with memory function to both seats. the Multi CD changer and cup holders on those long trips. The driver will appreciate the Xenon headlights and safety features these models have with ABS and ESP braking. The service booklet carries seven Mercedes service stamps, two MB specialist and one from us. The dealer presentation pack with manuals, leather wallet are all present. MOT and service receipts are present followed by a detailed document of the work we have carried out for sale today.

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.
