Description

RARE GRAY MARKET EURO IMPORT, 5.0L V8, CORRECT COLORS, CLEAN CAR, NICE UPGRADES!

There was a hotter version of the R107 SL, and this 1985 Mercedes-Benz 500SL is it. This one retains all the luxury you love about a Benz, and adds extra European performance flair that most Americans never got to experience. So here's your opportunity to join a rare class of Mercedes enthusiast, and as it turns out, the dues to get into this club are quite affordable.

This is a specialty machine, and so it has a specialist look. You get all the best parts of a Euro-spec R107, such as the headlights and bumpers that are more flush with the body, and then there is plenty of added American-style flair. For example, the 500SL's deeper chin spoiler and rear spoiler are no joined by a side body kit. These elements, plus the grille, have been professionally resprayed in a deeper tone of the car's classic white. It gives this rare classic a modern and sleek feeling that stands out even amongst other 500 SLs. We also like this color because it coordinates so nicely with the brown folding roof, and for those who want even more distinction, a color-matched hardtop also comes with the sale. Best of all, those who miss the shine on the bumpers are certainly satisfied by the upgraded set of polished 15-inch Mercedes wheels.

The details are what matter on a car like this, and so we know you'll love how the pinstripe on the outside is a preview of the tan color of the interior. The front bucket seats are made from supple leather and they have grand touring comfort. Plus, the carpets, dashboard, wood grain, and center console look great for their age, so this feels premium like a good Mercedes should. And speaking of premium, this comes with all the right features, including power windows, power locks, power steering, cruise control, an upgraded AM/FM/cassette stereo, and provisions for air conditioning. You might have noticed the rear seats with seatbelts. This is likely not an aftermarket kit, but instead the more comfortable units that were factory options in Europe – just another advantage of this cool personal import.

Under the hood is a numbers-matching 5.0-liter V8. This fuel-injected SOHC unit looks quite authentic, right down to the factory decals. Those who understand Mercedes SLs know how important this powerplant is. The 500SL was the quickest version of the R107 Mercedes offered around the world, and the USA never officially received them. With less regulation on the home market (the exhaust system looks like it belongs to a muscle car) the engineers at the German plants were free to make the lighter 500SL quicker than the U.S.-spec 560SLs. The result is this is not only a better sports car, but also you get extra nods of approval from true Mercedes aficionados. Beyond the hotter engine is the ideal Mercedes fully-independent chassis that feels sporting without ever getting harsh on the road. Add in four-wheel disc brakes, ABS, and a four-speed automatic transmission w/overdrive, and this is a great classic cruiser with plenty of modern moves.

Complete with owner's manual, this is one of the best classic machines for both class and distinction. We even won't tell everyone how little you paid. Don't miss out, call today!
