This is the best buy I’ve seen in the R129 market in some time: a low-mile example from one of the best years in the very rare color of Azurite Blue with all of the most desirable options (AMG sport package and Xenon headlights) for a very reasonable price.

Okay, I don’t love the chromed wheels, but they kind of work against the dark blue paint. In any case, they could be swapped out without too much fuss.

No mention of whether the top mechanism’s hydraulic cylinders have been replaced. If not, that’s something that will likely need to be taken care of relatively soon. An indy shop should should be able to do it for about $1500 using rebuilt units from Top Hydraulics.

All in all, still a great buy – especially if you like your R129s in rare colors.

Offered on Autotrader HERE by a private seller in the Phoenix area for $10,500.

I don’t like the chrome wheels either, but they do give the R129 that extra touch of drug dealer style.

Indeed they do, although apparently Joey Badass rolls with BBS rims…



If you get one that song has to be played once every summer while cruising downtown.
