Does anyone know of another R129 SL500 in this colour?

Hi

Apologies for also posting in Members' Gallery, but that doesn't seem to get as many views as General

I recently bought this car and wondered how many there were in the UK as I've not seen another (this is a RHD import from Singapore, brought to the UK in 1999). A few pictures here:

Is there any way I can find out how many UK R129s were ordered in Rosewood?

Don't think I've ever seen one that colour ... no way to check UK numbers AFAIK. Lack of headlight washers would give it away as an import!

I'd suggest a email to MB in Germany?

Lovely colour & car. I reckon it would look even nicer & spot on if alloys were darkened down a smidge to a mid grey.

I agree, once my V5 comes thought
I'll do that. Cheers

Thanks for the replies. I've drawn a blank on the official MB Club forum too, so it'll be interesting to see what MB has to say. I know it was a rare colour as I've always noticed cars and colours since a kid (sad I know!) but have not come across this one

Really like that colour + the rims.

Personally I'd keep it just the way it is.
