The R129 SL500 was an icon of the 90s automotive landscape. As likely to be seen on Rodeo Drive as the Autobahn, the SL500 was popular with automotive enthusiasts the world over. Known for its styling, engineering, safety, and quality, the R129 generation SL500 was so popular it went virtually unchanged for over 13 years before being replaced by the R230 SL500 in 2003. Powered by a 5.0L DOHC 32 valve V-8 producing 322 horsepower mated to a silky smooth 4-speed automatic transmission, this SL500 is just as comfortable cruising swiftly to the mall or carving up your favorite back road. The front suspension features fully independent damper struts with separate coil springs and gas-pressurised shock absorbers, triangular lower control arms with anti-dive geometry and stabiliser bar. The rear suspension is comprised of an independent 5-arm multilink set-up with separate single-tube gas-pressurised shock absorbers and coil springs, geometry for anti-lift, anti-squat and alignment control with rear stabiliser bar. The braking system is a 4 wheel power disc system with a split hydraulic circuit for safety, and antilock brake assist.The classic 8 hole Mercedes 16x8 wheels are covered in Z-rated rubber to help put the power to the ground and maintain control when the road turns twisty. This SL500 is painted a beautiful metallic green with a tan leather interior and cloth convertible top. Inside you will find a whole host of power amenities. The roof is fully powered and has a hard tonneau shell when the top is down. One neat feature of the R129 is the automatic pop up roll bar. This roll bar can be raised or lowered by a switch on the dash, or, when the car senses an impending roll over, the bar will automatically deploy to protect the occupants. The R129 generation was the worlds first convertible with this feature, and shows the incredible engineering that went into this car. The seats are covered in butter soft leather, feature 10 way power adjustment, and 3 person memory function. The climate controls are fully automatic, just set the temperature to your preference, and let the car control the rest. The windows, locks, and mirrors are all powered as you would expect, and the rear view mirror features automatic dimming. The sound system is a premium Bose Acoustimass with separate amplified speakers to accurately reproduce every fine nuance of your favorite sound tracks. If you are in the market for a fine European luxury/sport roadster that you can enjoy with all the comforts and features you would expect, then this is your ticket.
