Curious, R129 rear suspension?

I'd always believed that R129 rear suspension was based on W201/W124 suspension but I have two Revell 1/24 scale models of the 300SL-24 which have the rear suspension depicted being die-cast alloy(going by the trellis pattern) semi-trailing arms.

They do have multi link rear ends, revell got it wrong and used the 560SEC model kit suspension.
2013 E220 CDI (Obsidian Black/Black Leather) Comfort Package & 17's
Seems to be the recuring theme of E-Class.
2014 C250 AMG (Brilliant Blue/Grey Leather) Full House with 19's
2003 ML270 CDi (Alabaster White/Grey Leather) Lux pack
3 works well enough......Untill a Thistle W126 SEL comes along.

Suspension is interesting, then you want to know.
