Azurite Blue (366O) with Beige Leather (275A) / SL500
SLSHOP showroom listing
Overview of this Mercedes-Benz
Beautiful mid-facelift R129 SL500, Low Mileage, Exceptional History, Upgraded Exhaust, 2 Keys
SLSHOP are delighted to present this low mileage 1996 SL500 with just 32,849 miles on the clock. Owned by the same family since new, the vehicle has been cherished up until present and following extensive preparation work by SLSHOP, is now available for immediate acquisition.
This example is finished in the sought after colourway, Azurite Blue (366O), with a Dark Blue Soft Top to complete the picture. The paintwork is in outstanding condition, with none of the usual signs of wear you’d expect from a 26-year-old vehicle. This is testament to the preservation-focused current owner.
The 8-hole light alloy rims are all sharp in finish, with no signs of damage from accidental encounters with the curb. All four tyres are ready to be put through their paces as certified by our Workshops.
As you can see from the imagery, the plush leather looks (and smells) new. This particular model features the later seat design, but with the staple double stitching and perforated centre sections. All carpets are clean and without stains. The door cards, dash and rear seats are delightful and appear as if they’ve just been fitted in the factory.
Occupants benefit from electrically adjustable seats and exterior mirrors, as well as heated seats at the front. Additional options include cruise control and ESP - Mercedes-Benz’s electronic stability programme that makes the ride more taut.
As part of SLSHOP’s preparation process, we have carried an extensive number of improvements to this SL500 to bring it to our grade. This includes a new Soft Top, as well as a replacement roof control module which is a known issue with this model of SL. Additional works included, new bonnet insulation, an underbody clean and waxoyl, refurbishment of all four alloy wheels and much more.
A significant amount has been invested in this R129 SL to prepare it for sale, with invoices for the works present with the vehicle’s history file.
