FOR SALE: 1996 Mercedes-Benz SL500 (R129)

The R129-generation of Mercedes-Benz's SL is a popular modern classic these days, not just from an investment point of view, but because even by today's standards it remains a luxurious, easy daily dripping with charm.


Year and Make/Model: 1996 Mercedes-Benz SL500 (R129)

Engine: 5.0L V8 petrol

Transmission: 5-speed Automatic

Mileage: 100 622km

Colour: Maroon

Location: Johannesburg

PRICE: R350 000

When it comes to two-door cars with the Three-Pointed star on the nose, the SL range has always been a benchmark-setting machine. And so it was with the R129 generation, launched in 1989, at which time it was one of the most advanced cars on the market with, for example, an automatically deployed roll-bar in the case of an accident.

It also comes from a time when Mercedes-Benzes were still "over-engineered" and so these R129s are tough cars. This example has only just covered more than 100 000km and so should provide many more years of driving enjoyment.
