Lot details

MOT: July 2022

  • 95,390 recorded miles (atoc) and six former keepers
  • Supplied with a large history file
  • Fitted with an LPG conversion by Bury LPG
  • Accompanied by a body-coloured hardtop and personalised registration number ‘GYB 554T’

Faster, harder-edged and more driver-orientated than its R107 predecessor, the Mercedes-Benz R129-series SL was launched at the 1989 Geneva Motor Show. Brimful of cutting-edge technology, its impressively rigid two-door monocoque bodyshell featured an integral rollover bar that deployed in less than a third of a second (if the car ever sensed an impending flip) and a fully automatic convertible roof. Known for its sure-footed handling, the R129 utilised all-round independent suspension, ABS brakes and power-assisted steering. Propelled by a variety of six- and eight-cylinder engines all allied to an automatic transmission, it was the sports car of choice for many contemporary F1 drivers. Reputed to develop some 188bhp and 192lbft of torque courtesy of its 2960cc SOHC straight-six, the 300 SL was a paragon of refinement (despite its claimed ability to sprint from 0-60mph in 9.0 seconds and onto 142mph).

Manufactured in 1992, this SL 300 was supplied new to the UK and is fitted with the 3.0-litre straight-six engine mated to the automatic transmission. The Mercedes-Benz is finished in the complementary colour scheme of Blue with Cream interior upholstery and a Dark Blue hood. With a recorded mileage of 95,390 miles from new (at time of consignment), the SL 300 entered into current custodianship in 2019 and has just six former keepers. Converted to run on LPG in 2008 (at 83,304 miles) by Bury LPG, the Mercedes-Benz’s conversion certificate is presented in the accompanying history file. The aforementioned history file also includes a selection of past invoices and MOT certificates, previous service history and a current V5C. Offered with a hardtop finished in body-colour, the SL is also provided with the cherished number ‘GYB 554T’.
