ONLY 72K MILES, CLEAN AUTOCHECK, MINT INTERIOR, SUPER NICE CAR, 90'S LUXURY!
A timeless color combo, silky V8 power, and every luxury amenity you could want, including two roofs. This 1998 Mercedes-Benz SL500 proves you can buy instant class, and you don't even have to break the bank doing it.
The SL has a long history of being sleek, purposeful, and dignified, with a healthy dose of performance under the surface. The subtle Neve White paint seems to capture this attitude perfectly as this original application is both neat and offers a sporty shine. In typical Mercedes-Benz standards, the fit and finish is of the highest long-lasting quality. The doors close with precision usually reserved for cars with solid roofs; the body gaps are so tight you can't even fit a fingertip in them; and the color-matched bumper and rocker panel moldings makes this a fantastically coordinated total package. And that imposing grille with three-pointed star leading the way makes every highway look like the Autobahn.
The SL has earned its reputation as a luxury cruiser through a long list of desirable features. Comfortable tan leather bucket seats with memory settings power adjust in every possible direction, the wheel tilts and telescopes, and all that wood is real. But there's another side to Mercedes amenities that are always a nice bonus. This premium marque is known for engineering plenty of safety into their cars, and this can be seen on everything from the airbags (dual front and side), to the anti-lock brakes, to the roll bar that automatically pops up when danger is detected. There are other amenities such as automatic climate control, power windows, power steering, power locks, keyless entry, cruise control, and a Bose premium AM/FM/cassette stereo w/CD changer powerful enough to be heard at triple-digit speeds with the top down. And speaking of top, you not only get a nice black electric folding roof, but this one also comes with the color matching hard top that makes your roadster look like a sleek coupe whenever you want.
The engine bay is filled with V8 power. The SL500 is has Mercedes-Benz's silky-smooth 5.0-liter V8, and this one remains original to the car. It has led a pampered life, and you can really tell by the tidy and clean presentation of the engine bay. With 32-valves, dual overhead camshafts, and a robust 315 horsepower, this is a terrific powerplant that pulls hard no matter if you're at a stoplight or approaching triple-digit speeds. Plus, these later SL500s came with a five-speed automatic transmission. It's both perfect to give you better control over the powerband as well as better fuel economy when you're just out overdrive cruising. This versatility is extended to the suspension where the fully-independent setup is built to be sporting on the backroads without jeopardizing the Benz's luxury manners. Add in speed-sensitive power steering, four-wheel disc brakes, and Bridgestone Potenza tires on the factory five-point alloys, and you've got a great all-around thoroughbred for the road.
Complete with owner's manual, this SL500 is in an interesting place in the market where a Mercedes roadster that's so cherished is still well within reach. It's time to get a piece of the good life at a great price. Call today!!!
