2001 Mercedes SL500 Sport, Formula One Edition - 1 out of 20 cars constructed to celebrate the return of F1 to the US. Brilliant Silver/Silver Perforated Black Nappa Leather, 39k miles, 3 owners. Excellent cosmetic condition with some minor imperfections, performs flawlessly. New tires, battery, recent brakes, front top hydraulic cylinders done. Convertible top replaced to black - not the original ash color. Left front fender edge (where it meets the end of the bumper) has a few mm of corrosion under the paint - it is the only on the car. Has a modern pioneer high end head unit - original radio is included. Overall an outstanding example that can easily be taken to the next level if one chooses to do so.
Complete manuals, two keys, first aid kit, tool kit. All original documentation including - data card, window sticker, original purchase invoice to the first owner from MB of Manhattan. This car was owned by Mercedes Benz of North America for the first 1800 miles.
The Formula One edition with 20 cars constructed is the rarest R129 US special model produced and 3rd rarest limited edition R129 in worldwide production behind the 2000 Mile Miglia SL320 (12 cars made) and 2001 Mile Miglia SL600 (13 cars made) - both never sold in North America.
In comparison there are 1515 SL500 and 100 SL600 Silver Arrows made in 2002 for the US.
