Bring a Trailer Bargain of the Week: 1991 Mercedes-Benz 300 SL | MotorBiscuit

The next-gen, all-AMG SL is just around the corner. But with convertible season coming up, some buyers might not want to wait or pay for a brand-new one. Luckily, there are plenty of used Mercedes-Benz SLs available, many at reasonable prices. And if you’re nervous about buying a depreciated modern Benz, a stalwart vintage one won’t necessarily break the bank. Case in point, the 1991 R129 Mercedes-Benz 300 SL available this week on Bring a Trailer.

A Mercedes-Benz R129 SL is “equal parts performance, prestige, and engineering excellence,” Automobile says

The SL nameplate dates back to the original 300SL Gullwing, which eventually spawned a convertible model. And the R129 SL—or, technically, the SL-Class—is the fourth-gen version that replaced the long-lived R107. Although well-loved, by 1990 the R107 was almost 20 years old and rather outdated, Hagerty reports. Car and Driver describes the R129 as “a quantum leap in design, engineering, safety, and performance.”
