This impressive top of the line R129 SL was sold new in Japan in
As is often the case in that country, mileages are minimal,
which explains why this car has only covered an average of 1,700 miles per
It retains its original Japanese paperwork although no hand
book as such. The V5C shows that it was imported into the UK in 2016 and
registered in June of that year K876 EEP.
It had some new top strut
mounts at that time and an MOT which was needed to register the car. Since
then it has barely turned a wheel and remains in stunning order, sitting on a
set of AMG wheels.
The vendor informs us that it is indeed a fine car,
the only fly in the richly iced cake (to mix metaphores) are the hood rams which
do not hold fluid - a common enough issue on these R129s we are led to
believe when the hood is not operated regularly.
Complete with hard
top, this impressive 5-litre V8 is one of the nicest we have seen and the way
interest in these beautifully engineered Mercedes' is going, looks like an
excellent place to store some hard earned cash...
