Further Info:

The fourth generation (R129 Series) of Mercedes-Benz's iconic SL models was launched at the Geneva Motorshow of 1989. It was a beautifully-engineered motorcar that bristled with technical refinement and innovative safety features. The specification included independent suspension all round (double wishbone at the front and a five link system at the rear), adaptive damping, ventilated disc brakes with ABS, electronic stability control, integral roll-over bar and front air bags. Introduced in Autumn 1993, the SL280 was powered by a 2.8 litre DOHC straight-six engine that developed some 190bhp and 199lbft of torque. Equipped with five-speed automatic transmission as standard, the Roadster was reputedly capable of 0-60mph in 9.6 seconds and 140mph as well as being notably more fuel efficient than its V8 brethren.
