About This Car

2001 Mercedes-Benz SL500 Silver Arrow Edition (R129)

Silver Arrow Metallic (777) with Black Nappa Leather (231)

29,017 miles

Number 12 of just 100 Right Hand Drive Silver Arrows produced, with framed certificate signed by Sir Stirling Moss.

Throughout the 12 year production run of the R129 SL, Mercedes-Benz launched a number of special models – there are none as desirable and rare as the Silver Arrows edition of 2001.

At the very end of it’s production run, just before the R230 arrived in showrooms came the Mercedes-Benz R129 Silver Arrows edition. Just 100 were made for the European market in Right Hand Drive form, with each car having it’s own build certificate signed by none other than Stirling Moss himself.

The Silver Arrows R129 was more than just a lick of paint and a commemorative badge, it offered a comprehensive specification resulting in what is arguably the most aesthetically pleasing R129s of all.

Inside the car features electrically adjustable heated front seats, glass panoramic roof, rear seats and a premium Becker audio system.

Outside this car enjoys the full AMG styling package, along with folding rear mirrors (heated), Xenon headlights and special edition alloy wheels.

When it comes to buying an R129, the Silver Arrow has to be one of the very best cars you could choose.

This example is number 12 of 100, and is complete with official certificate signed by Sir Stirling Moss.

Also present with the car is a trophy from Sywell R129 Event, where this car won First Place in it’s class.

An exceptional opportunity to acquire a rare SL showing less than 30,000 miles from new.

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.
