A topshelf cruiser, or boulevardier, the MercedesBenz SL is highly regarded worldwide, especially sought after are the V8 and V12 variants. MotoeXotica Classic Cars is proud to present this 1994 SL600 Convertible. The clean CarFax indicates only 3 previous owners, all in Florida and low mileage of only 68k miles.
Dressed in Imperial Red with a black canvas softtop, this example was assembled in Bremen, Germany. It was released from the factory on February 18, 1994 and was delivered on February 21, 1994. This twodoor left the factory with the following equipment selfleveling suspension all around, with Adaptive Damping System (ADS) (code 216); Exquisit Radio MB (code 251); Acceleration Skid Control (ASR) (code 471); hardtop heatinsulating glass all around, heated rear window (code 592); elimination of first aid kit and warning triangle (code 639); eighthole light alloy rims (code 652); black canvas power softtop; center highmounted stop lamp (code 340); antitheft/antibreakin warning system (code 551); and closing system with infrared remote control (code 880).
The cars paint and trim are in overall excellent shape with minor imperfections, while the windows are clear and crackfree. The vehicles lights are in overall great order but the left taillight is broken. This big Benz rolls on Dayton Daytona ZR radials, size 225/55ZR16, surrounding eighthole alloy wheels (code 652).
The droptops bodywork is straight and solid, the engine bay is very tidy and the bumpers fit well to the cars body. Under that hood is a 6.0L DOHC 48valve V12 engine (code M120) with sequential fuel injection. Backing that engine is a fourspeed 4GTRONIC automatic transmission (code W4A040). The transmission is calibrated to take off in second gear to reduce creeping and provide a smoother ride. The transmission will select first gear only if the selector is in 2 or in case of abrupt acceleration. Other attributes of this gearbox include a second to third shift delay when the engine is cold in order to speed catalyst warmup. Fourth gear is a 1:1 ratio. It is considered by enthusiasts to be one of the most reliable transmissions ever built byMercedesBenz,with some examples exceeding 300,000 miles of service.
Driver convenience features include climate control, power steering, power fourwheel disc brakes with antilock, power windows, power locks, power mirrors and dual front air bags.
Inside, the Beige leather bucket seats (code 275A) are in overall great condition but there is a blemish on the passenger seat side bolster. The matching carpet and headliner also look better than average. The fourspoke steering wheel with airbag is in excellent shape, the inner door panel echo the rest of the interiors theme though the drivers door trim is broken and the glovebox does not latch but the center console looks fantastic. The mirror glass is in decent order while the shift lever is in very good condition. Rounding out the interior is a factory AM/FM stereo with cassette deck and compact disc player.
Under the body, there is a front suspension with independent damper struts, separate coil springs and gaspressurized shock absorbers, triangular lower control arms with antidive geometry and stabilizer bar.
Out back, the rear suspension is comprised of an independent fivearm multilink with separate singletube gaspressurized shock absorbers and coil springs, geometry for antilift, antisquat and alignment control and stabilizer bar.
Designed in 1984, the R129 was based on the shortened floorpan of theMercedesBenz W124 and featured many innovative details for the time, for instance, electronically controlled damping (Adaptive Damping SystemADS, optional). The R107s somewhat dated rear suspension with semitrailing arms gave way to a modern multilink axle. The number of standard features was high, with electric action for the windows, mirrors, seats and hydraulic convertible top. The R129 model was the first convertible/roadster to offer an automatic rollbar deployment in event of rollovers. The driver can manually raise and lower the rollbar if he or she chooses. This facilitates the clean look of R129 without compromising the occupants safety. That year, the car saw a minor facelift for the SL with changes to the taillamps and white turn signal indicators in the front. Introduced in 1993 as the600 SL, it was rebadged theSL 600in 1994.
Competition to this Mercedes in 1994 included Chevrolets Corvette Convertible, Ferraris 348 Spider, Jaguars XJS V12 Convertible, Lexus SC400, Panozs Roadster and Porsches 928.
