54K ACT MILES, CLEAN HISTORY, RECORDS, IMMACULATE, THE 1 YOU HAVE BEEN WAITING 4
The Mercedes SL inspires desire through its long-standing reputation of delivering the highest standards of luxury in a performance roadster. This 1999 SL500 is a timeless classic that you've yearned for, and now it's at an obtainable price.
The Medium Red Metallic 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 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 red (there's even a gold painted pinstripe for even more distinction.) In typical Mercedes-Benz standards, the fit and finish is truly impressive. The doors close with precision usually reserved for cars with solid roofs, and the gaps are so tight you can't even fit a fingertip in them. The color-matched bumper and rocker panel moldings give this precision package a very sporty demeanor. And keen eyes will catch individualized pieces like the chromed wheel arches and the carbon fiber center caps on the 17-inch alloys. But the front is the place we like the most. The imposing grille with three-pointed star is almost as good as a plow for getting slower traffic out of your way.
This SL has earned its reputation as a luxury cruiser through a long list of desirable features. Comfortable tan leather buckets with dual memory settings 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 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, cruise control, and automatic climate control. The black folding roof goes up and down at the touch of a button and can provide a level of insulation that is the envy of other luxury brands.
The 500 in SL500 refers to the 5.0-liter DOHC V8 that lives under the hood. Making a robust 305 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, but it settles into a comfortable and quiet cruiser when you just want to unwind. The five-speed automatic transmission snaps to attention with the poke of the throttle, and the multi-link fully independent suspension provides impressive handling. Plus, four-wheel disc brakes and grippy performance 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.
