The Mercedes-Benz SL series started out as the top of the line sports luxury tourer that offered both performance and comfort. The third generation SL was called the R107 chassis and is one of the most recognizable Mercedes of all time. Produced from 1971 all the way to 1989, the R107 lived a long and cherished life. The United States was an extremely popular market for the personal luxury coupe and almost ⅔ of all SL's were sold here. While not as quick or pretty as their European cousins, the US market SL's still represented the cream of the personal luxury car crop. The top dog was the 560SL that was powered by a 5.6L V8 that produced 227hp and could hit a top speed of nearly 140mph. It was smooth as butter and was mated exclusively to a silky automatic transmission.
This 560 SL was owned by the original owner from 1987 until 2018. With only 24,070 miles on it, this beauty is like new both inside and out. Featuring its powerful V8 engine, plush interior and drop top enjoyment, this is really the best of both worlds and at a much more reasonable price than when it was new! From the outside, the paint looks excellent with its chrome bumper accents, chrome wheels and black top all in great condition. The interior is in great condition as well
A well documented, well serviced car, this excellent SL drives very well and is in stunning shape. It is finished in a brilliant coat of diamond blue metallic and as the values are on the rise, it pays to stand out from the crowd. Everything from the engine bay to the undersides is in tip top shape and it comes with all the original window sticker, and the factory hardtop. You won't be disappointed!
