Every so often a Mercedes comes into stock which is a standout example in its model range, this exquisite SL500 is simply just that.

R129’s have become firmly on the radar of enthusiasts and collectors alike, their build quality, performance and increasing year on year style have now seen them become more and more desirable.

They are finally following in the footsteps of their SL predecessors the W113 and especially the R107 of which is the model they can draw most comparison in terms of ownership patterns, appreciation symmetry and overall attraction.

Although the R129 was produced in fairly high numbers, well maintained low mileage examples are still hard to find.

The SL500 we have here is everything you would wish for when seeking a best of breed vehicle to enjoy whilst safe in the knowledge that if kept in the same condition it could prove to be a solid investment in years to come.

Finished in a stunning colour combination of Azurite Blue Metallic over Mushroom Leather with dark blue soft top and the well specified glass panoramic roof this example has covered just 25,203 miles.

The history from new is all catalogued in a substantial and impressively kept file which showcases the way this vehicle has been consistently kept and cared for throughout all its life.

Unlike some low mileage vehicles there are no chunks of time where the SL500 was ‘off the road in storage’ it has had a total of 15 stamps in its original service booklet starting with its early servicing at Mercedes-Benz Chelsea and more recently here at John Haynes since 2016, the vehicle has clearly never wanted for anything and been kept ‘as new’ on the button throughout all its owners, this is proven and reflected when you see the vehicles condition, its underside, paintwork, interior and mechanicals are all first class, any inspection and road test is more than welcome.

This SL500 was ordered new in 1998 through Mercedes dealership Alan Day, London by the CEO of EMI records a Mr Alain Levy, who kept the vehicle for the first 9 years of its life, with Mr Levy it resided in London being routinely serviced both at Mercedes-Benz Chelsea and Woking Motors.

The history file continues to flow well through each owner, all its MOTs and many invoices are present, within the file it is also nice to see how time has been taken to perfectly summarise the history to further show how well the vehicle has been cared for, along with its well stamped original service booklet and all handbooks, it’s a history file which satisfies any perspective purchaser looking for a low mileage and well maintained vehicle.

With it being under our care for all routine servicing and maintenance since 2016 we know the condition very well, in preparation for sale it has just undergone a scheduled ‘B’ service, had a brand new soft top fitted along with the refurbishment of the period correct diamond cut 8 hole alloy wheels, the vehicle now wants for nothing with everything function fully operative, it naturally comes with a full MoT.
