Description for Mercedes-Benz 500-Series 1989

This 1989 Mercedes-Benz 560SL is the one for true collectors. More than just the deep red paint that has a great sunny day shine, this comes with a large maintenance file, low 56,283 mileage (averaging less than 2,000 miles annually,) full features list, and overall fantastic presentation that lets you know this luxury machine has been treated with the respect it deserved since day one. This 560SL is from the final year for the now legendary R107 model designation. These cars are iconic because they represent an era when very few companies could build a convertible without worrying about safety regulations. Mercedes crafted their cars so robustly that the R107 exceeded these standards, and they did it elegantly without an unsightly roll bar. Today it remains elegant, powerful, comfortable, timeless, and nimble - a classic that can do everything. It was the go-to driver for celebrities, dignitaries, and the wealthy because the sleek lines hid a full size interior and usable trunk that was perfect for any road trip. This one has added value because of the immense care that has been taken to be sure the body lines and trim are pristine. The factory correct Garnet Red has been given a full professional respray in 2007 by Classic Car Motoring (one of the best in the country and $9k back in 2007) to ensure that a sunshine-friendly droptop like this showcases its best and most sophisticated tones on any sunny day. The black folding roof matches so nicely with the bumpers that this car almost has a two-tone presence. And when you want a coupe-like profile, the optional Garnet Red hardtop goes on with true German precision. The Mushroom tan leather interior has a rich sophisticated tone, and there is arguably no better color combination with the rich red exterior. Not only is it the right color, but also there's more evidence inside that the previous owners understood the significance of this final year R107. It has the kind of pampered life where the dashboard, wood grain center console, and leather seats basically look new. This is a mix on investment in new components and never being left open to the world extended periods. Even the carpets have the kind of plushness that give you pride in ownership. The 560SL was one of the most expensive cars Mercedes offered during its reign, so the features list is quite long. This includes desirable conveniences such as power windows, power locks, power steering, cruise control, provisions for air conditioning, and the correct Becker Grand Prix AM/FM/cassette stereo. There are also more modern features than most R107s, such as a third brake light and a driver's air bag. The 560SL ruled the road with a large 5.6-liter fuel-injected V8. This was more powerful than a Rolls-Royce of the time, and it delivered its performance just as smoothly. Out on the road, the fully-independent chassis has the perfect balance of elastic comfort and tight-handling. The four-speed automatic transmission also strikes a balance between performance and overdrive comfort cruising. The total package is finished off with four-wheel disc brakes that even include ABS. When you look at the undercarriage photos, this SL looks far tidier than many other cars of its age. This is because you're looking at a low-mileage, two-owner car that has 50+ pages of maintenance receipts. It's this level of consistent careful ownership that results in a car that looks so good even in the places hardly anyone ever sees. Beyond meticulous maintenance records, this 560SL comes with the original window sticker, title documentation, and the full owner's manual packet - everything you need to continue this car's exceptional legacy. It's becoming more difficult each day to find such quality with mileage like this, and so we don't expect it to stay long in our showroom. Call today!!!
