SL 320 40th anniversary roadster

Hello, Does anyone know if my '97 SL320 40th anniversary roadster is much more valuable than a standard model of the same year? I've been told that there were only 250 of these special editions made, but the only difference between the two is the special blue paint and blue burled walnut interior trim, along with the floormats that say "40th anniversary roadster". thanks

Because the R129s in general are still used cars and not sought after as collectibles, there is probably minimal value at this time in having a 40th anniversary special. In another 10 years, when R129s start to become collectible, then special models could bring premium prices. But only if they're in top condition, unaltered and documented.
