WITH its twelve-cylinder engine – presented in 1987 in the seven-seater E32, followed up in 1989 in the eighth E31 – BMW put Mercedes-Benz under pressure. The new S-Class of the 140 model series – presented in 1991 – was not to lose touch, nor was the C 140 coupé, which was added at the beginning of 1992. For reasons of prestige, Mercedes-Benz then also planted a V12 in the R 129: Many parts were adapted to force the large engine into the bow of the R 129, and a reinforced automatic transmission, which has to handle the enormous torque of 570 Nm, was also used. By the end of production in 2001, just over 11,000 units of the 600 SL/SL 600 of the 129 series had been produced.
A Mercedes-Benz SL 600 of the 129 model series from 1994 can now be auctioned off at this auction. Originally the roadster with the FIN WDB1290761F102871 comes from Japan, then it was imported into the United Kingdom (in 2008) before it came into the possession of a Dane – a total of 4 owners are to be listed for the car. The history of this twelve-cylinder roadster can be proven via various documents as well as an available service booklet. Matching numbers exist according to the seller statements, in addition, there is still 1 key pair. Currently, the SL 600 still has English papers.
"Brilliant Silver Metallic" is the name of the paint color of this twelve-cylinder, which presents itself in good condition without repainting. Scratches, dents or paint chips on the silver body cannot be detected, and modifications to the exterior cannot be found. All plastic elements on the roadster are in perfect condition, neither on the front nor rear bumpers can traces of a parking bumper be found. The black soft top is free of cracks, and a hardtop in body colour is also included.
5-spoke Euroline alloy wheels, together with Yokohama tyres – which are equipped with sufficient tread – ensure the external appearance of the Mercedes-Benz. The seller can describe the condition of the brakes as good, the chassis is derived from the W 201 and W 124, but is adapted to the changed axle geometry of the SL 600. In this top model, the adaptive damper system (ADS) in conjunction with automatic speed-dependent level control is also standard.
The interior of this SL 600, which is equipped with black full leather seats, is richly equipped. With the exception of a slightly stressed outer driver's seat cheek, no negative abnormalities can be seen in the interior of this Mercedes-Benz Roadster. The following features can be listed in this SL 600: leather steering wheel with sporty leather/wood design, central locking with infrared remote control, electric windows, electric seat adjustment with memory, heated seats, air conditioning, ABS, cruise control and an accessory radio with CD player and Bose sound system. All switches, levers, instruments and indicators in the interior work perfectly.
In the clearly structured cockpit, 53,610 kilometres can be read in the middle round instrument. The low overall mileage of the Mercedes-Benz can be traced and thus documented after consultation with the seller via various documents and documents as well as via a checkbook.
The 6.0-litre V12 engine with the engine designation M 120 offers exemplary smoothness and sufficient power reserves. An output of 394 hp and a torque of 570 Nm ensure considerable driving performance, a 4-speed automatic transmission transmits this sheer power to the rear wheels. In 2022, a service was carried out, in the course of which a general inspection of the car was also carried out.
In line with the low overall mileage of this SL 600, the underbody condition is evident: rust spots or improperly carried out work cannot be detected on the underside of the roadster. A V12 is the pinnacle of engine design, also at Mercedes-Benz. An SL 600 of the 129 series represents the high-end roadster of the luxury class for all those for whom a 500 is not enough. This Mercedes-Benz SL 600 offered here scores with its low mileage, classic colour combination and luxurious equipment.
