The smooth V6 is an excellent complement to the R129 SL. Under the bonnet of this example you'll find a pristine engine bay with no signs of any damage or poor repair. All panels remain free from corrosion and all plastics appear factory fresh. The car performs beautifully on test, pulling well and shifting through the five gears exactly as required. It will be serviced upon sale for the new keeper's peace of mind.
The vast engine bay appears in excellent condition under our studio lighting. The 3.2-litre V6 idles up to temperature nicely and punches out a respectable 228hp at 5600rpm. On closer inspection the under-bonnet components appear in great shape throughout, with nothing untoward to speak of for a car of this age. Despite its low mileage the SL boasts a good maintenance record, and so unsurprisingly remains in fine mechanical fettle. It will be sold freshly serviced.
