Vehicle description

Model history:

Shortly after the introduction of its predecessor, the R 107, Mercedes-Benz began developing its successor in 1974. However, the R 107 developed into a perennial favourite in the course of its biblically long construction period of 18 years, which is why the successor was postponed again and again and detailed work on the R 129 did not take place again until 1981. The new SL generation of the R 129 model series finally celebrated its world premiere at the Geneva Motor Show in 1989. When it comes to safety, Mercedes-Benz naturally also wanted to impress with this model series: ABS, airbag (initially optional only for the driver), an extendable roll bar and so-called integral seats at the front, in which belts and tensioners are attached to the seat.

General information about the vehicle:

In this auction, a Mercedes-Benz 300 SL of the R 129 model series, which dates back to 1991, will be auctioned. In July 1991, this roadster was handed over by the Mercedes-Benz branch in Düsseldorf to the first owner, who only used the car as a third vehicle and from 2007 only rarely drove it. According to the seller, this Mercedes-Benz has a complete service history with the VIN WDB1290611F039162, as the former owner of this roadster always had the maintenance carried out regularly at the Mercedes-Benz branch in Düsseldorf. A history is thus given and the so-called matching numbers are completely available according to seller information. After consultation with the seller, he informs that before handing over this roadster to the new owner, the TÜV will be redone.

Exterior colour/varnish/body:

"Blue-black metallic" (color code 199) carries this 300 SL as paint color - according to the statements of the seller, the car has its extensive first paint. According to the current owner of the Mercedes-Benz, defects or missing parts on the exterior are not present, and there are apparently no modifications to the body deviating from the original condition. To get a more detailed picture of the condition of the paint, the body and the general state of preservation of this vehicle on the exterior, we recommend taking a look at the telling photo series of the 300 SL.

Exterior rims/brakes/chassis:

According to the current owner, no complaints can be expressed in the area of tires or brakes, and the condition of the original Mercedes "manhole cover" alloy rims is also convincing. Modifications or inconsistencies in the chassis area are not to be mentioned.

Interior:

The well-maintained state of preservation of the exterior of this Mercedes-Benz roadster obviously continues in the interior: After consultation with the seller, there are no signs of wear or gross defects that could cloud the good overall impression in the interior. In addition to the leather seats, after deciphering the optional equipment codes, the following features are on board this 300 SL: antenna with switch for C-network telephone, airbag in the steering wheel, air conditioning, heat-insulating glass all around, heated seats. An original Mercedes-Benz car radio adorns the wood-veneered centre console.

Mileage

At present, 91,430 kilometres can be read on the speedometer of the 300 SL, which can be proven beyond doubt by extensive service records. According to the seller, all instruments and displays in the interior of the Mercedes-Benz are in service without any problems and all electrics work without any problems.

Engine

The engine compartment of this Mercedes-Benz is extremely cleanly preserved: It contains the 3.0-liter in-line six-cylinder, which delivers an output of 231 hp to the rear wheels. Power is transmitted via 5-speed manual transmission. According to service records, the last service took place in a Mercedes-Benz dealership in 2019 at KM stand 88.261.

Subsoil:

In accordance with the overall mileage and the well-kept overall condition of the car, the underbody of this R 129 is also cleanly preserved. With the R 129, Mercedes-Benz launched another dream roadster after the R 107, which impressed with elegance, luxury and safety. If you would like to appear discreet in a roadster and still want to shift gears yourself, this 300 SL with 5-speed manual transmission in black / black is recommended, which has been meticulously maintained by its previous owner.

      Ist es ein 300SL 190 ps, oder wie auf dem Kofferraumdeckel ein 300SL24V mit 231PS?

      • KICKDOWN-avatarKICKDOWN24.11.2022 09:18 (5 days)

        Wir haben noch einmal nachgefragt. Es handelt sich um einen 24V, wie auch auf der Typenbezeichnung am Heck zu sehen. Somit hat er selbstverstänldich auch die 231PS Maschine. Wir werden dies im Text anpassen.
