Launched at the 1990 Geneva Auto Show in 300SL and 500SL models, the long-awaited R129-generation Mercedes-Benz SL enjoyed instant icon status as a more than worthy successor to the outgoing R107 series cars. Designed by Bruno Sacco, Mercedes new SL featured bold new styling, higher-than-ever performance and built-in safety measures including an automatically deployed roll bar. Well-deserved praise for the new SL was instantly earned from road testers and buyers agreed, with production of the new SL sold out the first year. In the best Mercedes-Benz tradition, the R129 SL series was continuously improved and updated throughout production until its eventual replacement in 2001. Delivering outstanding road manners with long-range performance and comfort in the finest Grand Touring tradition, these very fine cars are true modern classics in every respect.
Well-known to us at The Last Detail since purchase in 2014, this final-year 2001 Mercedes-Benz SL500 Convertible is a top-quality example of this extremely desirable model. Having enjoyed the care of just 3 owners from new, it has covered just 53,849 actual miles at the time of writing. Totally stock and unmodified, it retains the original and excellent Red paint finish, with confirmed paint-meter readings. The potent 5.0L V-8 engine delivers 302 factory-rated HP in concert with a 5-speed automatic transmission and a recent test drive confirms the SL500 drives as well as it looks.
In addition to a file of service records under the current ownership, this investment-grade 2001 Mercedes-Benz SL500 is complete with the original toolkit and roadside jack in their proper locations, plus a car cover. The factory auxiliary hardtop is complete with its cover and stand for storage. Owners manuals and a 2001 Mercedes-Benz sales brochure complete this impressive offering. Benefiting from caring ownership, with low actual mileage, this 2001 Mercedes-Benz SL500 is a stellar offering with great looks and impeccable heritage.
