A striking, low mileage pre-facelift 500SL in astral silver with grey leather. Produced early in the R129 production run, it was registered in October 1990 and supplied by Caffyns Mercedes Dorchester.
Collectors are searching for good examples of these early ‘066 chassis’ cars that avoid the wiring loom issues that blighted the later mid-production run R129s SLs. They also have the higher output V8 engine, a more robust 4-speed gearbox and more ‘classic’ pre-facelift styling.
This particular R129 also has the advantage of being ordered without a catalytic converter; modestly improving its BHP and torque, whilst removing weight and potential future expense should the converter fail.

The history with the car is extensive, including c. 50 pages of receipts and old MOTs. The documents and maintenance book show 20 services by Mercedes main dealers/ specialists, and it has had c.£5k of expenditure in the last year or so, with notable work including adaptive suspension rear spheres and front shocks.
All owner’s manuals are in their leather wallet along with 3 keys
- Last service: this month
