AMG PACKAGE, LOADED, 22K MILES, 5.0L 302 HP, 5 SPD AUTO, NEAR PERFECT, FUN!!!
When you're in the market for a high end roadster that is packed with luxuries and performance, chances are you'll give the Mercedes-Benz SL class a first look. This 2005 Mercedes-Benz SL500 packs a stout V8 engine into a tight chassis that is equipped well enough to pamper your wife on a weekend shopping spree, or thrill you on a Sunday country road drive.
With just over 22,000 miles, this SL500 has averaged less than 2500 miles of road time per year since purchased new. That low mileage shows in the excellent looking Firemist Red Metallic paint that covers the smooth body panels. This car looks like it just about came off the showroom floor. With the AMG Sports package that enhances the styling with 18'' wheels and a body kit, this SL has seriously sporty looks. The retractable hard top goes up or down with the push of a button, and looks great either way, with a profile that has streamlined looks. Overall it's an excellent finish on a great looking car that you'll be proud to show off wherever you go.
Mercedes-Benz has long been known as a manufacturer to innovate and evolve luxuries in the automobile. This SL500 continues that practice with more luxuries and safety features than you could possibly imagine. Besides what you would expect in a 2005 model year luxury car, like air conditioning, AM/FM/Satellite radio with a CD changer, power windows, power mirrors and power seats; there is also heated and ventilated seats, warning sensors, Distronic adaptive cruise control and even a 'Mercedes' branded Motorola cell phone located in the center console with it's own charging station. The wood grain steering wheel includes phone and radio controls. And the list goes on, but you can be sure you will certainly be spoiled with comforts and conveniences in this SL. For safety, Mercedes has incorporated a powered roll bar that will raise due to driving conditions, or you can manually raise or lower it with a switch located in the center console. The interior complements the exterior well with Stone leather covering the powered bucket seats, wood grain inlayed door panels and a two-tone dash that is also accented with excellent wood grain.
Powering this Bavarian roadster is a 5.0L V8 that is capable of 302 horsepower and 340 lb/ft of torque. That's enough to get this coupe to 60 mph in about 6 seconds flat. Power travels through a 5-speed automatic transmission that sends power to the rear wheels. When you're ready to take this car on some spirted driving you can put confidence in Mercedes' Active Body Control system that will adjust suspension tuning and ride height based on driving dynamics. Those driving dynamics are assisted with power steering and power anti-lock disc brakes. Staying firmly planted to the road are 255/40/18 front and wide 285/35/18 rear Sumitomo tires. If you have a peek underneath this car it's evident that the German engineers had highway cruising in mind as the underbelly is almost as flat as the road to keep aerodynamics in check and to maintain this car stays grounded at autobahn speeds!
This '05 SL500 is the perfect car to add a fun, reliable cruiser to your stable that you can drive everyday or enjoy on the sunny weekends. After seeing the demand for older SL cars starting to sharply rise, this low mileage specimen can also present a great opportunity to lock in a future collector car in your collection. Call today!
