2001 Mercedes-Benz SL500 Silver Arrow Edition (R129) for sale

Silver Arrow Metallic (777) with Black Nappa Leather (231)

Throughout the 12 year production run of the R129 SL, Mercedes-Benz launched a number of special models – there are none as desirable and rare as the Silver Arrows edition of 2001.

At the very end of it’s production run, just before the R230 arrived in showrooms came the Mercedes-Benz R129 Silver Arrows edition. Just 100 were made for the European market in Right Hand Drive form, with each car having it’s own build certificate signed by none other than Stirling Moss himself.

The Silver Arrows R129 was more than just a lick of paint and a commemorative badge, it offered a comprehensive specification resulting in what is arguably the most aesthetically pleasing R129s of all.

Inside the car features electrically adjustable heated front seats, glass panoramic roof, rear seats and a premium Becker audio system.

Outside this car enjoys the full AMG styling package, along with folding rear mirrors (heated), Xenon headlights and special edition alloy wheels.

When it comes to buying an R129, the Silver Arrow has to be one of the very best cars you could choose.

An exceptional opportunity to acquire a rare SL.
