Produced for twelve years, the Mercedes-Benz SL 500 (1998 model) is the creation of design engineer Johann Tomforde. The R129 (technical designation) first rolled out in 1984 (the first generation model was designed by Bruno Sacco) as a 2-door roadster with a convertible roof that came in two different variants, i.e., fabric and a manually detachable metal roof.
This car had several advance safety systems that included ADS (Adaptive Damping System), hidden roll-over bar protection, electronically adjustable seat-belt height adjustment, etc.
