2002 Mercedes-Benz SL500

The R107 Mercedes-Benz SL always had a bit of a feminine personality to it. This generation SL was certainly more luxury oriented than the W113 SL it replaced. When the R129 took the R107’s place after an impressive 18 year production run, once again a manual transmission was back on the options list. Was this a sign of changing times? While the 5-speed manual SL didn’t last that long, some AMG styling bits went a long way to give this roadster a more brutish appearance. This final year 2002 SL500 for sale in Florida is closing in on 100,000 miles but still looks quite fresh.

2002 Mercedes-Benz SL500 R129 Convertible Roadster AMG SPORT PACKAGE!!!

If you are looking for that ultimate driving experience, timeless Mercedes-Benz styling, and unmatched elegance and beauty, then this Mercedes SL500 Roadster with Highly desirable optional AMG Package is the car for you!!!

The 2002 Mercedes-Benz SL500 is a fun-to-drive luxury convertible that combines the safety and security of a hardtop, the wind-in-your-hair fun of a convertible and the European-brand cachet of a Mercedes all in one powerful and attractively styled package. The R129 model was the first convertible/roadster to offer the automatic rollbar deployment in event of rollover. The motorist can also manually raise and lower the rollbar should he choose to. This facilitates the clean look of R129 without compromising the occupant’s safety.

The R129 was also the first SL to offer a V12 engine and the first to be offered in an AMG version – both features we can’t imagine a modern SL roadster to do without. But it all started with the R129 model! The Mercedes-Benz SL500 has presence. No matter the neighborhood, an SL is a sign of good taste. It is an expression of conspicuous consumption. This beautiful Brilliant Silver Metallic over Black Nappa Leather interior Luxury Roadster comes fully loaded with all the power options one would expect in Mercedes-Benz including:

Optional and Rare AMG SPORT PACKAGE – featuring 18 inch 5 Spoke AMG Alloy wheels and a special aerodynamic front bumper designed by AMG

With R107 prices on the rise, the next logical choice for those seeking a used SL bargain would be the R129 SL. The early 300SL and SL300s are a tad bit underpowered and the V12 powered 600SL and SL600 have a thirst for petrol and are murderous on the wallet when it comes to maintenance. The 500SL and SL500 are the best bet for those looking to strike a balance between performance and reasonable running costs. If the maintenance is documented as described and it clears a PPI without anything major lurking, this SL represents a lot of style for the money. This is the kind of car you can savor now and enjoy a bit of appreciation as the years pass.
