We are delighted to offer this stunning, first class example onto the market. A6 MVO is one of the very best W129 series SL's we've owned and this is as a result of very careful ownership and low mileage. The car has only covered 66,000 miles from new, has been regularly serviced and garaged. The Mercedes Benz also comes with an exceptional history to include the original bill of sale, MOT's back to its first test, MB brochure and press photo, MB user guide cassette, spare wheel label, service invoices, receipts and original handbooks and leather wallet. The car also has its original tools, fire extinguisher, first aid kit, spare keys and both hard top and excellent soft top.
This 300-24 valve SL was supplied new by Rivervale of Brighton on the 11th May 1990. The car left the factory in Arctic White with grey leather and was fitted with memorable electric seats, memory steering column, wind shield, cruise control, anti-theft and rear seats. The SL was sold new for £54,026.94 and has had a total of 3 owners. A6 MVO comes with an exceptional service record and the supplying dealer Rivervale carried out the first two services. Ripley Carriage Ltd in Surrey then serviced the car at 18073, 20103 and 22253. A Mercedes Benz specialist, S.S Motors carried out a service at 23897 in 1995 and Ripley Carriage Ltd then picked up servicing again at 27398 and 30318 miles. S.S Motors serviced the car again at 35995 in 1998 and Ripley Carriage Ltd then serviced the Mercedes at 42060 and 45174 miles.

MB specialists Harbour Cars in Chichester stamped the book at 59775 miles, Chappell Sports Cars serviced at 63166 and the most recent service was carried out by the SL Shop at 65557 in April 2013. In total, including the Pre delivery inspection the service book records an impressive 23 stamps resulting in an exceptional service history.
As expected with such impressive paperwork, maintenance and meticulous owners, the car is a true delight. The body and paintwork are of an excellent standard and the attention to detail is second to none. The engine bay is beautifully detailed and polished, the door shuts are like new, the spare wheel never used and the spare wheel well like brand new. Even the hard top lever is still in its original MB packaging, every aspect of the vehicle is just superb. The wheels are excellent, the hard and soft tops superb and the inner arches are underside exceptional. It is a fantastic to see a W129 so well cared for and never neglected and examples like should only appreciate in time. Needless to say, the SL upholstery is fabulous with lovely original leather, perfect carpets. MB mats, stunning woodwork, dashboard and steering wheel.
On the road our SL is faultless with luxury, performance and quality. The car has no known faults, runs and drives perfectly and sounds fabulous. A6 MVO is not the typical W129 and is most certainly a car for the discerning buyer.
