We are pleased to present this collector-grade 1993 Mercedes-Benz R129 600SL finished in Brilliant Silver Metallic over black leather. Introduced as the top-range variant of the Mercedes SL roadster, this 600SL features self-leveling suspension with active dampers as well as a powerful 6.0 L V12 engine. This 1993 example is said to have spent time in a prominent Central California collection before its recent purchase by the seller in early 2020. It has since been treated to a major service including fluid and filter changes, a transmission and differential service, new tires, and A/C maintenance within the last 1,500 miles. It is now being offered in exceptional original condition by its seller in California with only 14k miles shown on the odometer.
The factory specified Brilliant Silver Metallic (744) finish is said to be in pristine all-original condition (detailed images are provided in the photo gallery). The factory painted hardtop is included and the original 8-hole light-alloy wheels are retained and have been dressed in new Michelin Pilot tires within the last 1,500 miles.
Inside, this SL features a luxurious black leather (271A) interior that is stated to be in brilliant condition with only minor shrinkage of the headliner. An aftermarket radio has been installed and the cabin is said to be otherwise original with its factory optioned draft deflector included. All gauges and accessories are said to be fully functional and a major air conditioning service was recently carried out including a new condenser and receiver dryer.
This SL is equipped with a robust 6.0 L quad-cam V12 engine capable of sending 389 HP and 421 lb.-ft of torque to the rear wheels through a 4-speed automatic transmission. Factory performance features include self-leveling suspension with the Adaptive Damping System (ADS) and Acceleration Skid Control (ASR). Routine service has been kept up to date including the replacements of both fuel pumps, the self-leveling suspension valve, and the resealing of the oil level sender and oil cooler lines under previous ownership at 13,563 miles. More recently under the current ownership, a major service was carried out which included the following items within the last 1,500 miles:
This sale will be accompanied by 1 remote key and 2 conventional master keys, owner’s manuals, a toolkit, an unused spare tire, some service records, the factory hardtop, wind deflector, and a clean California title. For any discerning European car collector, this beautifully preserved 600SL offers an excellent investment opportunity.
