The Mercedes-Benz SL R129 automobiles were produced from 1989 through 2002. They were sold under the SL-Class model names. The R129 replaced the R107 SL-Class in 1989 and was in its turn replaced by the R230 in 2003 (US).
The R129 was produced as a two-door roadster with an automated (electric) textile tonneau cover. All R129s came standard with an additional hardtop roof that could be fitted as and when desired by having the canvas roof folded down and then by manually attaching the hardtop to the body.
