Silver Arrow SL600: R129 Swansong

Special edition V-12 2002 SL a glamorous end to R129 series SL

 

May 2007

 

While hardcore students of pre-war auto racing will undoubtedly connect the words "Silver Arrow" with the Mercedes Grand Prix cars of the '30s, that name graced a pair of far more modern Mercedes' as well.

 

Ultra rare and handsome 2002 SL600 Silver Arrow.

 

When the R129 series (1989-2002) was approaching the end of its production life, Mercedes-Benz offered a limited number of specially equipped 2002 SL500/600s noted as Silver Arrow editions. Revisions were extensive and virtually every cosmetic finish differed from a standard 2002 SL. The overall package was very handsome although slightly betrayed by the excessively granular "ultrametallic' Silver Arrow paint.

Production numbers were very low with 200 SL500 and 100 SL600s constructed. We are pleased to bring you an example of only 100 SL600 Silver Arrows constructed. Some information on this glamorous SL from the ourSL.com database follows.
