WELL MAINTAINED, 5.0L V8, AUTO, 2 TOPS, GREAT PAINT/INT, A/C, PWR EVERYTHING!!
There's something great about going premium car shopping. This 1992 Mercedes SL has been cared for all its life, so its paint, interior, and big 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. The white paint was a bold choice in 1992, but today it gives the car a modern elegance. The lower cladding in gray not only helps protect the bodywork, but also 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 R129 are still renowned today for their amount of technology packed into the luxurious interior. The blue leather buckets not only look amazing against the pristine white exterior, but that also are fully power adjustable. Of course the seats are 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 that sounds fantastic top up or top down. And speaking of the top, it's a multi-layered matching blue 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 315 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. You can tell by everything from the condition of the original alloy wheels to the undercarriage that this one has led a pampered life. Mercedes convertibles don't get their motors swapped like muscle cars, and so this has its original powertrain that has barely averaged 4,000 miles per year since new. The four-speed automatic transmission snaps to attention with the poke of the throttle, and the multi-link suspension 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.
This SL500 is in an interesting place in the market where a Mercedes roadster that's so cherished that it comes with its original window sticker and owner's manual is still well within reach. It's time to get a piece of the good life at a great price. Call today!!
