The Mercedes-Benz roadsters were some of the most successful cars ever produced by the German automaker. Today they remain fantastic cruisers with great performance and an iron-clad reputation for quality and durability. This incredible 1987 Mercedes-Benz 560SL is the one to own, with the biggest engine fitted to an R107, an upgraded interior, and just 6882 original miles (not a misprint).

Of course, this SL still carries the instantly-recognizable bodywork that defined almost two decades' worth of SLs, with the only noteworthy change being a tacked-on third brake light mandated by the Feds in 1986. Wearing 100% of its original sheetmetal and bright Signal Red paint, this astoundingly clean SL is exactly the kind of no-stories car you want to own. There's still a great shine to the bodywork, because you truly did get something exceptional for your money back in 1987, and there's no denying that Mercedes-Benz did put these together with extreme care; just look at the way the panels fit. And until you've slammed the door on one of these over-built tanks, you don't know how solid a topless car can be. This is quite likely the best of its kind available anywhere, and with prices marching upwards on almost a daily basis, it's a situation where it truly pays to buy the best. This car will always be in demand.

The beautiful contrasting tan interior is also entirely original, including the seat covers in original tan leather, carpets, and the real wood inserts on the dash itself. As a car that has spent most of its life with the top down, it's surprising that the sun hasn't really taken a toll, but then again, it hasn't been driven much either. As a result, the seats are supple, the carpets are not faded, and the steering wheel feels substantial in your hands. The seats have that firm feeling that only Mercedes seats seem to deliver, and all the gauges are fully functional. In fact, everything works, rare on other machines this sophisticated but not a surprise on this nearly-new example. By '87, just about everything was standard on the SL, including automatic climate control, a power passenger side mirror, power windows, cruise control, and additions like airbags and ABS brakes. Even the original Becker Grand Prix AM/FM/cassette stereo head unit is still in the center of the dash and the power antenna faithfully answers the call to action. The fully lined trunk is fitted with plush tan carpets and a spare tire that's never been down. And like all SLs, this car includes both a black canvas soft top and removable hard top.

As you might imagine on a car with so few miles, this SL is a heck of a runner. The 5.6-liter V8 engine under the hood was a big upgrade in the power department and lights off with a rumbling V8 idle and pulls hard thanks to 227 horsepower and a quick-shifting 4-speed automatic transmission. The engine bay is pretty much like new, and there's no denying that these cars have earned their legendary reliability status the old fashioned way: by being supremely reliable. SLs routinely run hundreds of thousands of miles with proper maintenance, so this one has decades of life left in it. The chassis is as clean as the engine bay and the tires are correct 205/65/15 Michelins on unmarked M-B alloy wheels.

Documented with its original window sticker, invoice, and manuals, this is a virtually new 560SL in fantastic colors. We doubt you'll be able to find a better one. Call us today!
