The 500SL must be the worlds most under appreciated car and this car can best be described as a gentleman's muscle car with plenty of torque, fantastic speed and handling capabilities in the right hands.
ABOUT THIS CAR
It is built like a tank and utterly reliable, even after 34 years.
Disk brakes all round / ABS / 240bhp / these came with the updated 4 speed, silky smooth gearbox / sumptuous ride quality.
Great to use as a Sunday Classic or a daily driver - relatively trouble free model, so you should have no problems with it.
Comes with hard top and Soft top.In the summer it's a great, breezy convertible with a dark and cozy canvas hood, and in the winter it's a quiet, brightly lit coupe.
Good acceleration and lovely, sophisticated cruiser - the subtle rumble of that V8 is a source of joy - it pulls strongly from low rpm and economy is better than most modern SUVs.
Imported from Japan - border checked in NZ in 2017 - first registered here in 2019.
Chain tensioners and timing chains, and servicing done only a month ago.
Conventional, water cooled four stroke, reciprocating piston type with 8 cylinders in Vee configuration / Overhead Camshaft / Bosch electronic fuel injection system.
Good straight, rust free body - very nice original paintwork.
Original interior in nice condition throughout.
Good tires. Good battery.
The R107 generation of Mercedes SL lasted 18 years. In our opinion, this is an over engineered Classic Car, that will only appreciate in value. Its well priced and all ready for you to enjoy!
