Mercedes Benz sl320: Is there a difference between the "sl"

This answer was rated:

Is there a difference between the "sl" being in front of the number or behind the number in the 129 series?
Hello and Welcome!
I'm Billy and i will assist you with your inquiry.
Feel free to ask if any further info is needed.

Yes there is a difference, as since the 129 series lasted for a decade or so, the older models follow the older mercedes denomination that would be 300SL or 500SL (the SL being after the number).
The newer 129 models, have the newer denomination (SL 320, or SL 500), as the newer mercedes vehicles.

Here is the detailed table:
