About This Car
2001 Mercedes-Benz SL500 (R129)
Obsidian Black (197) with Black Nappa Leather (231) and Panoramic Glass Roof (415)
A wonderful late 2001 (Y registered) 5.0 litre R129 SL featuring an impressive list of options.
Obsidian Black with Black Nappa Leather and Panoramic Roof is an ultimate and sought after colour combination for an R129. The burred walnut root trim subtly laid throughout the cabin gives the car an elegance and a level of understatement not found in other cars of the same era. Obsidian Black is a very deep metallic.
This car also benefits from heated orthopaedic electric memory seats, cruise control, electric windows and electric steering column making it an ideal candidate for a long distance trip. Specification includes cup holders, CD changer, Xenon headlights ABS and ESP.
In terms of the R129, this SL500 is as good as it gets, the ideal car for a collector or investor looking for one of the very last well equipped cars. Ready to be enjoyed by the new owner.
As with all our sale cars, an impressive array of documents and service history accompany this vehicle. We only stock cars we are proud to put our name on.

Where will your Mercedes-Benz take you?
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.
