95K ACTUAL MILES, 2-OWNERS, CLEAN AUTOCHECK, MAINTENANCE RECORDS, VERY CLEAN!
There's something great about going premium car shopping on our site, and this 1998 Mercedes SL500 is the perfect example. It has been cared for all its life, so its paint, interior, and big original V8 motor are all in amazing condition. In fact, the only part of this convertible that shows its age is the low price.
If you want to treat the interstate like the Autobahn, do it in a R129 Mercedes-Benz SL. It has an intimidating presence when it looms large in anyone's rear-view mirror. That's due in large part to the wide grille and massive three-pointed star, but from any angle, this car looks like unstoppable performance. While it's not a small car, it does have the sheetmetal stretched tight over the mechanicals, and few cars have ever been as densely packed with technological wizardry as this SL. Not just technology, but just superior engineering, too. You see that in how the original paint has not just survived, but it still has the kind of luster that makes lesser cars jealous. Glacier White was a bold choice in 1998, but today it gives the car a modern elegance. The lower cladding in gray contributes to a long, low appearance that totally works with the SL's image. Out back, the iconic ribbed taillights not only look good, but also they were developed as a dirt-repelling safety feature.
The blue leather interior adds a bold and sophisticated attitude against the white exterior. The R129 is a true luxury and technology machine, and you know it the moment you sit down. Those buckets seats are powered, heated, and engineered to keep you comfortable on long road trips. Of course the pair of seats is just the tip of the premium iceberg. This SL has real wood trim, automatic climate control, power windows, power locks, cruise control, a powerful AM/FM/cassette stereo w/CD changer that sounds fantastic top up or top down. And speaking of the top, it's a multi-layered tan cloth roof that raises and lowers electronically with the touch of a button. For those days you want a coupe, there is an included removable white hardtop. 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 features such as the dual airbags, anti-lock disc brakes, and roll bar that automatically pops up when danger is detected.
The 500 in SL500 refers to the 5.0 liter DOHC V8 that lives under the hood. Making a robust 322 horsepower, it gives you the freedom to choose to keep up with traffic, or easily leave all of them behind. There's a V8 bellow from the exhaust that sounds like LeMans at night, and it turns out that the engine is virtually bulletproof in the real world. This one has led a pampered life considering it has averaged less than 5,300 miles per year so far. The five-speed automatic transmission snaps to attention with the poke of the throttle. Plus, the multi-link fully independent suspension backed by Michelin Pilot tires provides impressive handling. In total, this is the ultimate roadster for the driver who wants a tight handling car for the backroads, but doesn't want to give up supple comfort or space for the golf clubs.
You could be shopping for a used hatchback or you could take home this Mercedes SL. The best part is you can show off this premium convertible with pride since it comes with documentation like maintenance records and the owner's manual. It's your chance at filet mignon for hamburger prices. Call today!!!
