Very rare Silver Arrow Edition, this is a definite collector! 2002 was the last production year for the R129 body style, the final 1,450 to be made were Silver Arrow Editions. This is number 802.
Same owner for over 15 years. Only 69,500 miles. Ordered with every available option, including the removable hardtop and windscreen. Almost $90,000 when ordered in 2002. Immaculate condition, always kept inside a temperature controlled garage and covered with a custom made car cover. Never has seen rain, only hand washed and waxed. Always serviced by Mercedes dealer and maintained with an open check book. Just completed 65,000 mile major service. New tires, brakes, battery, transmission fluid replaced, power top hydraulics replaced, AC serviced. This car looks and drives like brand new. Tons of documentation, books, manuals/etc.
Silver Arrow Editions were the only SL’s to come with the stunning 777code paint, it is the most beautiful color silver you will ever see, changes tone in different light. Every time you drive around people notice and want to talk about this beauty. The Silver Arrows also received custom forged wheels and two tone hand stitched interior. The dash and trim are all covered with hand stitched leathers and dark maple wood grain, not vinyl and plastic like the other SL’s. The instrument panel is surrounded by hand polished metal, the floor mats are even trimmed in silver. The R129 body style SL was by far the best model they ever made, that’s why they made them over 14 years. They are starting to rise in value, the Silver Arrows are the best and most rare they made. This Silver Arrow is appraising around $28k. Own a piece of history and watch the values soar.
More than 20 years ago, a 1996 Mercedes-Benz SL500 was purchased at the Normand of Mayfair dealership as a birthday present for a woman in England.
