First introduced in 1989, the R129 generation Mercedes Benz SL series was a worthy replacement for its long running predecessor. Featuring a wide range of six, eight, and twelve cylinder engines and the latest mechanical and electronic innovations, the SL was an immediate success. The final production model of this series was the limited edition “Silver Arrow” as a tasteful homage to the racing successes on Mercedes in the 1930s. These editions include the specific shade of silver paint, a unique two-tone interior, two-piece wheels, and a beautiful machined aluminum dash. Only 1,550 of these were made for the US market, making them extremely rare.
