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.

Finished in Malachite Green with a Cream leather interior, this example of a SL280 still wears its original supplying dealer plates. Always garaged, this SL has covered just 26,250 miles from new (at time of consignment) and with just 2 former keepers from new, this SL280 has been in current ownership since 2007. The current owner has stated that he has covered no more than c.5000 miles in 12 years. As should be expected with an SL the car is accompanied by both hardtop and soft-top. Presented with a collection of old MOT certificates and invoices, the owners wallet and handbook are both present. 'L550JOL' holds a current MOT until the end of October 2022.
