Decided to try branching out into the world of classic cars with this lovely original 1995 Mercedez Benz Sl500 Model R129 She’s powered by a 5.0 Litre V8 delivering 326 BHP and seemingly endless torque through the 5 speed auto box
Totally original 2 owners with only 89k miles. Everything seems to work perfectly and she is a pleasure to drive
Could spend all day just watching the german engineered automatic electric roof mechanism in operation !
Cost around £95,000 new and is one of the last of the properly built Mercs
Roll on springtime so I can enjoy some open top motoring
Can recommend this site if anyone is interested in more info about the Mercedes SL R129 Models http://www.brianclifton.com/cars/r129
