The Mercedes SL inspires desire through its long-standing reputation of delivering the highest standards of luxury in a performance convertible. This 2000 Mercedes-Benz SL500 has a powerful fuel-injected V8, sleek looks, and a loaded interior to deliver a true modern classic luxury experience.

The Magma Red paint is a great color for the right person. All SLs have a sleek, purposeful, and dignified presence, but this one goes further. If you're looking at this car, it's probably because you've seen a lot of the R129s in lighter colors. So this bold red makes for a nice distinction that's only amplified by the level of care that is evident from the moment the sunshine radiates its luster. That's why the same high standard of Mercedes build quality still applies today with tight tolerances and doors you close with authority. The color-matched bumpers and rocker panel moldings give this precision package a very sporty flair. And the 17-inch factory alloys have the kind of clean style that add even more attention-grabbing distinction.

The black convertible top looks terrific against the red, and while it insulates you better than many other convertibles, this modern classic was really meant to be open to the world. With the touch of a button, the roof goes down to reveal a great-looking tan leather interior. You can tell the took particularly good care of the nicely sculpted bucket seats. Plus, the addition of red floor mats not only is a nice coordination with the exterior, but also they do a good job of protecting the light carpeting underneath. This is full of the best luxury amenities, including power windows, power steering, power locks, keyless entry/alarm, cruise control, and a premium AM/FM/CD changer stereo. Mercedes is also known for engineering plenty of safety into their cars, and this can be seen on everything from the dual airbags, to the anti-lock brakes, to the roll bar that automatically pops up when danger is detected. But your top two favorite features will likely be the automatic climate control and heated seats. Together, they mean you can stay comfortable with the top down no matter if it's noon in the summer or a crisp fall evening.

The 500 in SL500 refers to the 5.0-liter DOHC V8 that lives under the hood. It's believed to be the original motor, and its ultra-tidy presentation is another sign of the respect this car has received over the years. With 300+ horsepower, it gives you the freedom to choose to keep up with traffic, or easily leave all of them behind. The five-speed automatic transmission is ideal for quick performance downshifts as well as overdrive cruising comfort. The fully independent suspension was engineered to be adaptable for both performance and luxury. Plus, four-wheel disc brakes and grippy Michelin Pilot Sport tires let this SL live up to its sporting heritage. 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.

Sporty, loaded, and timeless, this red Mercedes SL is about that ideal mix of class and performance that never goes out of style. Call today!!!
