FOR SALE: 1999 Mercedes-Benz SL500 (R129)
The R129-generation of Mercedes-Benz's iconic SL has risen significantly in popularity (and value) in recent years. Here is your chance to get in on the R129 action with a stunning silver example with a full service history.
Year and make/model: 1999 Mercedes-Benz SL500 (R129)
Engine: 5.0L V8 petrol
Mileage: 200 596km
PRICE: R290 000
While we may all still dream of owning a 300 SL Roadster or a "Pagoda", the reality is that those SLs have become out of reach. Also, if you're after Mercedes-Benz roadster thrills but with modern-day conveniences, then the R129 ticks all the boxes. This is a car that you could comfortably daily.
Highly advanced for its time, with loads of tech borrowed from big-brother, the W140 S-Class, the R129 SL had a novel pop-up roll-bar that deployed automatically in the event of a roll-over accident.
This particular silver example features classy grey leather upholstery and wood trim inside and also features a detachable colour-matched hardtop. It has just over 200 000km on the clock and a full-service history - the latter vital if you're buying as an investment.
