The Mercedes SL inspires desire through its long-standing reputation of delivering the highest standards of luxury in a performance convertible. This 1997 Mercedes-Benz SL500 is a timeless classic that you've yearned for, and now it's at an obtainable price.

The Imperial Red paint is a great color for the right person. All SLs have a sleek, purposeful, and dignified presence, but this one goes further. If you're looking at this car, it's probably because you've seen a lot of the R129s in lighter colors. So this bold red makes for a nice distinction that's only amplified by the level of care that is evident from the moment the sunshine radiates of this luster. This car has averaged less than 1,600 miles annually, so you know it has been treated with care. That's why the same high standard of build quality still applies today with tight tolerances and doors you close with authority. The color-matched bumpers and rocker panel moldings give this precision package a very sporty flair. And the 16-inch polished factory alloys add even more attention-grabbing distinction.

The black convertible top looks terrific against the red, and it will stay that way, because this is brand new! And while it insulates you from the world better than many other convertibles, this modern classic was really meant to be open to the world. With the touch of a button, the roof goes down to reveal a great-looking tan leather interior. Low mileage means little seat time, and so the carpeting is blush, the wood is glossy, and the bucket seats remain supple. Each seat individually power adjusts for your ideal position, and there are even memory settings. This premium marque is known for engineering plenty of safety into their cars, and this can be seen on everything from the dual airbags, to the anti-lock brakes, to the roll bar that automatically pops up when danger is detected. There are other amenities such as power windows, power steering, power locks, keyless entry, cruise control, and a Bose AM/FM/cassette stereo w/CD changer. Plus, the automatic climate control means you can stay cool with the top down long into the summer.

The 500 in SL500 refers to the 5.0-liter DOHC V8 that lives under the hood. It's the original motor, and its ultra-tidy presentation is another sign of the respect this car has received from day one. Making a robust 315 horsepower, it gives you the freedom to choose to keep up with traffic, or easily leave all of them behind. The five-speed automatic transmission is ideal for quick performance downshifts as well as overdrive cruising comfort. The fully independent suspension was engineered to be just as adaptable to performance and luxury. Plus, four-wheel disc brakes and grippy Yokohama tires let this SL live up to its sporting heritage. 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.

Complete with owner's manual and maintenance records, this SL500 is about bringing a promise within reach. It's time to grab a piece of the good life at a great price. Call today!!!
