DESCRIPTION

If you're both a collector and a driver, this 1986 Mercedes-Benz 560SL is the kind of car that should get you excited. Not only does the red paint shine with distinction, but also the overall crisp presentation inside and out tells you you're getting a loaded V8 luxury machine that has been treated with the respect it deserved since day one.

The R107 Mercedes SL is iconic because it represents 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... So It's a classic that can do everything. This is a one-owner car, and it has been treated with the proper care you expect from being cherished for decades. The factory Signal Red paint received a quality respray later in life so that you get a nice clearcoat shine when the light hits the sheetmetal (exactly what you want in a sunshine-friendly convertible.) And speaking of the body panels, they retain the crispness that tells you Mercedes built these with quality, and that this one has been treated with care to retain those standards. 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 hardtop goes on with true German precision.

The Camel tan interior has a timeless look of sophistication against the red. So while we love the way both roofs look when they are in place, this one is also terrific when open to the world. The condition of the leather bucket seats and wood trim are more reminders of this car's proper care. Even the full carpeting has the kind of plushness that gives you pride in ownership. The 560SL was one of the most expensive cars Mercedes offered during its reign, and so the features list is quite long. This includes desirable conveniences such as power windows, power steering, power locks, and cruise control. Plus, the stereo is an upgraded AM/FM/XM/CD unit with USB input and Bluetooth, so you get to have the best in modern music in a vintage Mercedes. Because this was built in 1986, there are also more modern features than most R107s, such as a third brake light and a driver's air bag. But your favorite part will be the R134a air conditioning. It means this luxury convertible will keep you comfortable even when the top is down in the summertime.

The 560SL came with a big 5.6-liter V8 motor that had the power to rival contemporary Rolls-Royces. And one look at this engine bay, and you are reminded of this car's careful life. With the tidy presentation, fresh components, and even factory decals, this is exactly how you want your enduring Benz to be. On the road, an R107 has a fully-independent chassis that is 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 include ABS.

Complete with owner's manual, they say that class is not something that can't be bought, but purchasing this 560SL proves them wrong. Although "exempt" on the title, the current mileage is believed original. This is bold, robust, and absolute luxury. So don't let this prime Mercedes slip away. Call today!!!
