This 1987 Mercedes-Benz 560SL is a vintage car of distinction. From the color combo, to the unique features, it shows you what V8-powered German personal luxury is all about.
The factory-correct Smoke Silver is quite a nice color to have. After all, German cars look great in silver, but this one has deeper tones for added sophistication. And this one really like to be memorable with distinguished features like the high-polish finish of the factory alloys and the upgrade to Euro-style headlights. The dark brown folding roof complements the smoke silver paint, but for true distinction, you'll probably like the color-matched removable hardtop even better.
While either roof makes this look good, we all really know a convertible was meant to be open to the world. So you'll really love driving this with the top down. The factory red leather interior is one of the most handsome and distinctive colors available. And since the odometer is in kilometers (Canadian car) this has quite low mileage. Not only do you have a stand out color, but also distinctive features. Some were from the factory, like the seat heaters (a rare sight on these 560SLs that are great for morning drives.) But others features are more custom. For example, if you look behind the rear seats, there's a full custom speaker enclosure that matches the interior. So you get the look of factory, but the superior sound of a custom subwoofer stereo connected to a modern AM/FM/CD receiver w/aux input. Plus, as a true grand touring Mercedes-Benz, you have a ton of terrific comfort features, like high-back bucket seats, power windows, power locks, power steering, cruise control and cold-blowing air conditioning upgraded to R134a. And because this is a later R107, it has some nice safety upgrades like the third brakes light and a driver's airbag.
The 560SL was the luxury convertible of choice thanks to the big 5.6-liter V8 motor. These fuel-injected powerhouses are known for being both hardy and smooth. This one runs with the kind of grace that upholds that reputation, and it shows all the right signs of good maintenance. It's more than just the motor that made the 560SL the true grand touring benchmark. The fully-independent suspension has the ideal perfect balance of elastic comfort in a tight-handling package. This was topped off with a four-speed automatic transmission and four-wheel power disc brakes for the best all-around control.
Complete with the owner's manual packet, this is the SL with all the features you love and all the custom upgrades you want. So don't miss this Mercedes of distinction, call today!
