Seller offering a 1999 Mercedes Benz SL 500 with 112,000 miles for $5,950. There is something about the R129 series SL that’s hard to scroll passed – especially with the red over black leather interior and a panoramic hardtop. Although reported to be a bit heavier than the standard hardtop, the panoramic hardtop opens up the SL and owners say that it completely changes the driving experience. Tint and retractable “blinds” reportedly do a good job of managing the additional sun and heat of a large panoramic top. This example has an automatic transmission, automatic convertible top, tasteful custom wheels, and new tires. Seller says everything works and is in excellent condition.
The R129 was the first convertible to offer a rollbar that would automatically deploy during a rollover. Driver can manually raise and lower the rollbar as well. Check out some high speed accidents on the autobahn to see the rollbar automatically deploy. The SL 500 is equipped with a 5.0L V8 that produces 302 hp. Not quite the V12 of the SL 600 but much more manageable ownership costs. This Mercedes Benz SL 500 convertible is for sale in Blue Springs, Missouri.
