To mark the end of the R129 series, Mercedes Benz produced a limited run of 1,400 SL500 cars. These cars were labelled the Silver Arrow Limited Edition and so named to commemorate the historic Silver Arrow Mercedes-Benz racing cars of late 1950’s. To differentiate the cars from standard R129’s each received a unique silver metallic Silver Arrow paint and 6-spoke 18-inch two-piece alloy wheels with stainless steel trim rings integrated into the rim. Other distinct exterior features included Silver Arrow badging on the fenders and special aluminum trim and polished aluminum front grille. Bi-Xenon headlights were standard as was a polished stainless steel exhaust tip and polished wind deflector surround. The exclusive interior received a variety of features including brushed aluminum instrument cluster, aluminum shift gate, and aluminum pedals. Nappa leather in two-tone silver and black adorned the heated seats, trimmed door panels and steering wheel. The shift knob and wood work were fitted with polished grey-smoke walnut trim. The seat backs received embossed logos with the Silver Arrow logo. The Silver Arrow logo also adorned the ash tray cover.
Performance upgrades included larger tires and alloy performance wheels. Braking was handled by upgraded factory cross-drilled rotors at the front and rear to aid in better braking to handle the tuned 5.0 litre powertrain.
