This Mercedes SL hurts the eyes, but it’s so cool

What is the most beautiful generation Mercedes SL ever? We’ll go for the R129, which was built between 1989 and 2001, and you probably won’t agree with us. The R129 is an ’80s product, with right angles and sharp wrinkles wherever you look. Final version for sale in Alkmaar: SL 60 AMG with stunning Designo colour. It hurts the eyes, but so cool at the same time!

The Mercedes SL R129 was introduced to the market in 1989 as a successor to the R107, which has been sold for at least 18 years. Amazingly, the open sports car took second place in the Car of the Year election, right behind the Citroën XM. The R129 stands on an E-Class shortened platform and was a technical powerhouse when it was introduced. It’s fitted with an automatically folding bar, and optional adaptive dampers, and is the first production vehicle to have seat belts built into the seats.

The R129 was available with a six-cylinder (300 SL), V8 (500 SL) or V12 (600 SL) engine. Given the type designation, you might think the SL 60 AMG also has twelve cylinders on board, but that’s not the case.

AMG used a 6.0-liter V8 with 381 hp. The extremely rare SL 70, 72 and 73 AMG have a V12 engine, which will later be used for Pagani Zonda.

His nameplate is printed in large letters on the trunk lid, otherwise everyone would mistake the 300 SL as simple.

Designo Green, do you like it or not

You can’t go wrong with the color. The shade is called Designo Green. Unfortunately, you can’t see it in the accompanying photos, but the interior of the SL 60 AMG is much brighter, with black leather and many bright green details.

The unique SL is from 1997 and spans only 75,000 km. It’s not cheap, with an asking price of 99,500 euros, but the attention you get is priceless.
