The elegant fourth generation of Mercedes-Benz's much-vaunted SL model (the R129 Series), was launched at the Geneva Motor Show in 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, five link system at the rear), adaptive damping, ventilated disc brakes with ABS, electronic stability control, integral roll-over bar and front air bags. When introduced in 1993, the SL320 variant featured a DOHC in-line six-cylinder petrol engine of 220bhp and was continued through to 2002.

First registered on the 19th May 1998, this SL320 is presented in Green Black Metallic with contrasting Grey leather interior and is fitted with the desirable optional 5-speed automatic gearbox. Featuring its Nokia car phone and accompanied with matching hardtop, 'R79 RJM' displays 111,876 recorded miles on the odometer. In current ownership for nearly 11 years, the vehicle has been owned by a classic motor mechanic, who, when the service book became full, continued with hand-written records of work carried out in current ownership. 'R79 RJM' comes with the original book pack including a service book with 8 stamps and 2 keys. Previous invoices for work and parts are present, including a number of main dealer invoices. In 2015 the SL was treated to a replacement fabric mohair hood at a cost of £732.00. Pease note the hardtop may require some attention to remove if necessary. The car is accompanied by many of the previous old MOTs and documented work. The car is MOT'd until April 2023 and the V5C document shows 5 former keepers.
