There's something great about going premium car shopping on our site, and this 2001 Mercedes-Benz SL500 is the perfect example. It's a loaded premium luxury machine that comes with everything from a fuel-injected V8 motor to a choice of two tops. And you get it all for one surprisingly affordable price.
If you want to treat the interstate like the Autobahn, do it in a R129 Mercedes 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 well-engineered full package. The Champagne Gold paint was a great choice in 2001, because it still is an elegant hue today. The metallic glow of the paintwork does a fantastic job of coordinating with the sheen on the upgraded 18-inch AMG five-spoke wheels. You might have also noticed in the pictures that this car comes with the desirable removable hardtop. It gives you the option of having a sophisticated personal luxury coupe whenever you desire.
The R129 is a true luxury and technology machine, and you know it the moment you sit down. Those tan leather buckets are powered, heated, and engineered to keep you comfortable on long road trips. Of course the pair of seats is just the tip of the premium iceberg. This SL has real wood trim, power locks, cruise control, power steering, and automatic climate control. That last one is great, because it knows how to keep up with a change in atmosphere, and that's what the car was born to do. When you're using the well-insulated soft top, it can power down in a matter of moments. And power windows mean that you can go from enclosed luxury, to open to the world without ever leaving the driver's seat. 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. This can be seen on features such as the dual front airbags, side airbags, anti-lock disc brakes, and roll bar that automatically pops up when danger is detected.
The 500 in SL500 means a mighty 5.0-liter V8 in the tidy engine bay. The 302-horsepower fuel-injected, DOHC unit has the ideal mix of quick reactions and smooth delivery. The five-speed automatic transmission snaps to attention with the poke of the throttle; the four-wheel power disc brakes provide excellent stopping power; and the multi-link suspension provides impressive handling. In total, this is the ultimate convertible 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.
Complete with owner's manual, you could be shopping for a used hatchback or you could take home this Mercedes SL for the same price. It's your chance at filet mignon for hamburger prices. Call today!!!
