MERCEDES-BENZ SL (R129)
PRICE RANGE £300-5000/£47,500-189,000
The engineering beneath the R129’s stylishly understated looks always sold it almost as much as its handsome styling. And today the lengthy production run ensures that there are plenty out there, from six-pots to full-fat V12s.
That said, finding any well looked-after and genuine lowmileage original car does call for patience, and solid history is a must.
