Following the resounding success of the R107, the R129 Mercedes-Benz SL had a rather tough act to follow, as it still had to carry on the tradition of a fast and reliable grand touring convertible. The SL500 featured a 5.0 V8 that produced 326bhp and offered great performance, delivering a 0-62mph time of 6.2 seconds and a top speed of 155mph. The R129 featured much in the way of innovation, including controlled electronic damping, automatically expanding roll-over bar and a more modern multi-link rear axle. In addition to this was a fully operating electric roof, windows, door mirrors and seats, which made this model easy and comfortable to operate. As one might expect, the SL luxury sports cars were leaders in their class and lavishly equipped in the best Mercedes-Benz tradition.

Offered in two-tone silver with matching grey leather interior and factory hard-top, M189 WHJ has been in the current ownership for the last seven years and is offered displaying just 88,004 miles on its odometer. This particular example comes with its all-important factory hard-top and an MOT Certificate valid until 27 October 2022. M189 WHJ is rated by the vendor as ‘’very good’’ all round.
