Unveiled at the March 1989 Geneva Motor Show, the new Mercedes-Benz R129 SL range was at the centre of Mercedes-Benz finest years. The R129 had made a noticeable impression on the sports car market, and seeing 2-facelift changes happen, could only mean it was maintaining popularity.
Later cars are thought to be the furthest in refinement and this example is finished in Obsidian Black and optioned with Saffron Leather interior. Also optioned at the time was a panoramic hard top to accompany the electric convertible soft-top, which is finished in black fabric. The plastic windows are clear.
Benefiting from desirable contrasting Saffron leather, the interior is in very good condition, being free from scarring on the bolsters and keeping its colour. The seats are electric and heated, with an electric steering column and air conditioning. The centre console, and half wooden/leather steering wheel is finished Burred Walnut Root.
Being the later 2nd facelift model, this SL benefits cosmetically from new 17” wheels (which are in good condition), new bumpers and external mirrors. Mechanically there were also new engines, and this lovely mid-range SL320 was fitted with the more desirable M112 3.2 Litre V6.
On the road this SL performs faultlessly, all electronics work correctly, including the cruise control. The 3.2 V6 is possibly the most usable engine out of the 3, giving real world economy and comfort, but available performance when needed. Ideally an SL would be used for long distance touring, and this example performs perfectly when driven in such scenarios.
