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 automatic transmission, it was the sportscar 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).

PLEASE NOTE: According to the website mbdecoder.com, this 300SL was manufactured on 16th September 1991. Finished in Pearl Blue Metallic with Beige leather upholstery, its specification included a Dark Blue soft-top, Paint Protection, 8-hole light alloy wheels, heated rear windscreen and headlamp wash / wipe etc.
