The R129 SL series was introduced in 1990 to replace the aging R107 series that had been in production since 1972. The 107 series evolved to meet US crash and emission standards and the addition of unattractive "tailgate' bumpers was one result.
The new R129 series was a significant improvement in all respects. It received an all-new chassis, contemporary styling, a state-of-the-art sport-luxury suspension, 4-wheel disc brakes and, a complete unibody chassis.
It was a complete success and was produced for 12 years, through 2002. Safety features include an automatic roll bar and dual air bags. The 500SL has a 5.0 liter overhead cam V-8, producing 322 hp and, a 4-speed automatic transmission. It is one of the finest engineered cars of its era.
This example is as good a R129 series SL that you can find, at any price. If you can find a better one, buy it.
