Innovation, style and looking cool without trying those are the hallmarks of this 1999 MercedesBenz SL500 here at MotoeXotica Classic Cars. This example was built in MercedesBenzs Bremen, Germany factory in November 1998 and was delivered in the United States on December 9, 1998.
Finished in Firemist Red (code DB548) the cars paint and trim are in very good overall shape with only a minor blemish on the passenger side at the front air dam. The cars glass panels are clear and intact while the vehicles lights are in one piece and hazefree. This car rolls on Michelin radials, size 245/45ZR17 at all four corners. Each tire is wrapped around fivespoke AMG wheels and both tires and wheels look great.
This cars bodywork is straight and the doors and trunk close with the usual bank vault solidity. The Javacolored powerfolding softtop (code 745) had a surprise safety extra, a popup rollbar that automatically activated if the car sensed a rollover condition The trunk is in very good order, including the sixdisc CD changer tucked away on the drivers side. The engine bay is extremely tidy and the cars bumpers fit tightly to the body. The car was consistently maintained by Auto Europa of Naples, Florida where it spent most of it's life. We have receipts in hand for tuneups, required services, fluid flush, A/C repair, seat panel replacement, water pump, top service and much more at a cost of over $25,000.00
In that clean engine bay is the M113 5.0L 24valve SOHC V8 engine with sequential fuel injection and mated to a 5GTronic electronically controlled fivespeed automatic transmission. Driver convenience features are abundant power steering, power fourwheel disc brakes, power windows, power door locks, power adjustable bucket seats with heat and memory functions, power antenna, automatic climate control, cruise control and electronic stability control. The cars power sideview mirrors are inoperable.
Inside, this Benz offers a Saffron leather interior (code 234A). The bucket seats, matching carpeting and headliner in the hardtop are all in very good overall shape. The instrument panel, with its full instrumentation, is in one piece and looks great. The factory fourspoke steering wheel is present and looks fine. The inner door panels, mirror glass, center console and gear selector are all in similar, very good order. This car comes with driver and passenger front airbags as well as sidemounted airbags. Completing the interior is a factory AM/FM stereo with CD slot and digital audio links to CD player instead of analog copper.
The SL500, or R129, was produced as a twodoor, twoseatroadsterwith an automated (electrohydraulic), collapsibletextile roof, with a shelllike, colormatched,tonneau cover. All R129s came standard with an aluminumdetachable hardtopthat was fitted by folding the canvas roof down and manually attaching the hardtop.
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) and a hidden, automatically extending rollover bar. The previous models 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.
Competition to this Benz in 1999 included Acuras NSX, Aston Martins DB7 Volant, BMWs M3 Convertible, Chevrolets Corvette Convertible, Hondas S2000 Convertible, Jaguars XK8 Drophead Coupe and Nissans 300ZX Convertible.
