1998 Mercedes’ R129 SL60AMG

United KingdomEnglandLeicester

Overview of this Mercedes’

My fondness for the SL60 AMG was ignited during a time when my son worked as a development engineer at Aston Martin. He was offered an SL60 for the weekend to understand how Mercedes-Benz had created such a refined beast – the both of us were extremely impressed by the performance, build quality and features. It wasn’t until the early 2000s when an opportunity to own one presented itself.

My friend happened to be selling their SL60 AMG and given the rarity of these cars in the UK (only 49 RHD models were produced), I had to take the opportunity. The car has been part of my family for eighteen years, living a rich life of care and enjoyment, always garaged at my home in Leicester. In the eighteen years I have owned this SL60, I have only ever seen one other.

Notable features include: 

1. ASR : on/off Acceleration Skid Control system
2. ESP: on/off Electronic Stability Program system
3. ADS : on/off Adaptive Damping System . Damper control to increase/decrease damper firmness
4. Vehicle Level Adjustment System: to hydraulically increase ride height by 35mm or 60 mm. Automatically reduces ride height by 15mm from normal on speeds over 120mph
5. Cruise Control
6. Radio with CD and Cassette Tape Player
7. Automatic Climate Control
8. Fully adjustable Seats with 3 position memory store

Please note the car is supplied with the registration R60 AMG.
