Chic, solid and a high number of standard features, MotoeXotica Classic Cars is pleased to offer this 1990 Mercedes-Benz 500SL (R129) Convertible. This example was made in November 1989 in Bremen, West Germany. We are selling this nice Mercedes 500SL for a local client of ours who has owned this car for the past 12 years and he mentions that the factory hardtop is also available.
Dressed in Dark Blue (code DB-904) with matching electro-hydraulic folding top, the paint and trim are in very good order, as are the windows, which are clear and intact, even the plastic rear windows. The car’s lights are in overall very good condition, including the headlights, which have their own wiper blades and washers for cleaning.
This car rides on AMG, five-spoke alloy wheels, surrounded by 245/45ZR18 tires in front and 275/35ZR18 in rear. The right front wheel has a blemish on the trim ring. Its body panels are all solid and straight, including the body-matching collapsible roof, and bumpers. Driver convenience features include security system, automatic climate control, cruise control, power steering, power four-wheel disc brakes with anti-lock, dual front airbags, power windows, power locks, 10-way power seats with three-position memory, power mirrors and power antenna.
Designed in 1984, the R129 was based on the shortened floorpan of the Mercedes-Benz W124 and featured many innovative details for the time – optional electronically controlled damping (Adaptive Damping System ((ADS,)) optional) and a hidden, automatically extending roll bar. The number of standard features was high, with electric action for the windows, mirrors, seats and hydraulic convertible top. Other exterior features were removable wind deflector and ASR (Automatic Slip Control).
Under the 500SL’s hood is a M119 5.0 L 32-valve DOHC V-8 engine. It had four valves per cylinder and variable valve timing on the intake side. The M119 offered the following features – the engine block uses asbestos-free gaskets and has better oil flow; the cylinder head was a four-valve aluminum unit with dual overhead camshafts; the connecting rods are forged and enable cooling of the pistons with sprayed oil; the pistons are iron-coated cast aluminum; an improved vibration damper system is used; the aluminum oil pan has bolted-on oil baffles to prevent foaming of the engine oil; the intake camshaft timing is adjusted hydro-mechanically up to 20°.
The M119 engine is linked to a Mercedes-Benz 5G-Tronic is an electronically shifted five-speed overdrive automatic transmission with torque converter lockup.
Other vehicle features include front suspension with independent struts with separate coil springs and gas-pressurized shock absorbers, triangular lower control arms with anti-dive geometry and stabilizer bar.
Out back is an independent five-arm multilink suspension with separate single-tube gas-pressurized shock absorbers and coil springs, geometry for anti-lift, anti-squat and alignment control and stabilizer bar.
Inside, the Royal Blue Leather (code 272A) interior is in very good overall condition. The bucket seats look fantastic. The matching carpet is in similar good condition while there is a light colored headliner that is in good order. The car comes with full VDO instrumentation and the dashboard looks great. The original four-spoke steering wheel is present and the door panels match the rest of the interior. The mirror glass, center console and shifter are all in very good order. Rounding out the interior is a factory AM/FM stereo with cassette deck.
Competition to this Mercedes in 1990 included Chevrolet’s Corvette Convertible, Jaguar’s XJ-S V12 Convertible, Ferrari’s Mondial T Convertible, Lotus’ Élan SE and Mazda’s RX-7 Convertible.
