For Sale: 1994 Mercedes-Benz SL-Class in Staunton, Illinois

Vehicle Description

Available now is this amazing 1994 Mercedes-Benz SL320 (R129) dressed in all white with a blue interior and wood accents throughout. This Mercedes has been meticulously cared for and is in fantastic condition both inside an out. The SL320 was powered by the M104 3.0-liter inline-six, a DOHC, 24-valve design good for 217 horsepower. It could be had with a five-speed automatic transmission or a five-speed manual with a dogleg shift pattern (it is believed only 166 stick-shift examples were sold in the U.S.). This particular example is the 5-speed automatic transmission. For 1994 the engine was enlarged to 3.2 liters, and output climbed to 228 horsepower and 232 pound-feet of torque, but the manual transmission was dropped. The six-cylinder engine would last through 1997 and has since been considered one of the best inline 6 cylinder engine Mercedes has produced. The R129-generation Mercedes-Benz SL, which arrived for 1990, was a long time coming. Its predecessor, the R107-generation SL, had enjoyed a nearly 20-year reign as the preeminent four-wheeled symbol of success, but by the end of the 1980s it was an old car. When the new SL made its debut at the Geneva auto show in early 1990, buyers were more than ready to greet it. Orders poured in, and the first-year production of 20,000 units quickly sold out. That the R129 SL was radically different from its forebear was no surprise given the age of the preceding model and the fact that Mercedes-Benz was never an automaker to worship at the altar of history. Although the new SL did retain its roadster configuration-with a soft top and a removable hardtop-as well as its six-cylinder and V-8 engine offerings, it was in every other way a truly all-new and forward-thinking design. Today, this generation SL is a remarkably modern classic in its sophistication, road manners, and equipment. And this paragon of German engineering is startlingly affordable.
