Can we talk about how it is that you can order paint colors from the 80s on cars today? There should be more of this.
Too bad this isn't importable for the US, probably would have sold. Fantastic presentation and example.
Just here for all the so fresh and so clean comments. Really though, how is this such a time capsule?
Strongly agree with @unscripted - this is a lovely example of a late r129. Sport, Xenons, and that color combo makes this cool.
Are any of the 13 cars unaccounted for?
Great start to the day seeing this listed here. Curious to see where this ends up in both price and with the location of the buyer. Awesome!
How are we not talking about the interior colors on this one? Fantastic!
@RubiboundS55 over S600 for me, just my humble opinion but AMG’s seem to hold up better over time
Any statistics on how rare this AMG kit is? I feel like this isn’t a common occurrence
Clean example! Amazing to see with such low mileage!
I know there's a stigma around these "baby Benzes" but they were so much fun to drive when they came out and so good looking!
WOW! Really nice presentation here, the paint looks wonderful!
What a sleeper! Some will have to drive to appreciate how good these cars are!
These cars always feel so interesting in Petrol- wish MB would bring back the color for modern examples
This is more like it! Can't wait to see where this lands- congrats to either party!
This will be one of those I'll kick myself for not buying in the coming years. What a fantastic example.
Someone's getting a sharp R129!
Man this is cool, love the plaid!
@moonshot1 good looking example! Hows the COMAND screen? Any fading?
Wowwww. The sound from that startup video is truly something to behold. I had no idea that the stock S65 made such a glorious rumble. 😎 The exhaust note makes me want this big beautiful beast even more than I already did! GLWA!
@Saccoagreed! Takes me back to the 90's
Good luck to the seller and an early congrats to the buyer, this is a killer example!
Good show gents, congrats to the buyer! This will age nicely!
@MB5683I had an SLK in Magma that my girlfriend loved driving...maybe it's one of those puppy scenarios where you bring it home and they fall in love?
Now this is cool to see! Definitely the right time to have this one market! (Love how muscular the 221 looks compared to the 222's)
@JthompsonNot even close! It'll be a sad day when diesel commuters die out.
Wow this is clean....this was certainly someone's baby
@MB5683she'll most likely get over it in time!
Love that this will outlast almost anything else on the road in this price point or $50k. Tempted to grab it and never worry about a daily again.
Congrats @erik_amg !!
@LTbenzThose were definitely the good old days. I'd hope whoever buys this recognizes the value prop of this car as it is. Some light recon makes this a stellar 210.
@TheDanManTotally agree! Lots to enjoy about this one all things considered.
@Vlad600selYou and I will have to reconnect over a different one. Congrats @sebaf1
@Vlad600selI am and I appreciate the support. Man what a clean car...
This is such a cool spec, errmm, nothing to see here. Move along
@dean_laumbach- totally agree. These 210's just seem to have something special in the build. Too much tech has ruined that feeling.
Geez this is a cool one, perfect example of maintenance history > Mileage. Rather have one of these with records like this has all day. GLWTA!
These reman'd Becker Bluetooth units are seriously under-advertised. Had a couple in various cars from 202's to 140s, and a 107. There's something great about having the oem-look. Good luck with the sale!
@Dunfield80 Agreed on the 199-it's cool to see a 140 so clean, so many have been worn down and out in the States.
Glad to see the stock head unit in this- obsolete or not, it looks right.
