There\'s something great about going premium car shopping on our site, and this 1998 Mercedes SL600 is the reason why. It\'s one of the ultra-desirable models from the new crop of classics. After all, who can resist a sharp-looking Benz with V12 power and a panoramic hardtop... especially at this affordable price.
If you want to treat the interstate like the Autobahn, do it in a V12 Mercedes-Benz SL. Traffic parts as the wide grille and massive three-pointed star give an intimidating presence in any rear-view mirror. And from every other angle this car looks like unstoppable performance, too. The crisply defined sheet metal has an extra hint of aggression from the 600-series tastefully flared body kit and smooth AMG five-spoke wheels. This also has the unmistakable look of quality. The way the hood lines up and the doors close with such authority reminds you that a Mercedes was built to last well into its classic status. Even the paint looks attractive, with a good luster from the aptly named Brilliant Silver. The power-folding soft top looks good in black, although you will need to get it serviced for proper functionality. Plus, we are more partial to the color-matched removable hardtop that also includes the ultra-desirable panoramic roof option. Overall, this car has been driven and enjoyed, but averaging around 3100 miles annually means it has been more about pleasure drives than the daily grind. So you\'ll proudly cruise this upper-class SL. That\'s especially true now that it has passed the quarter-century milestone and begins to qualify for vintage registration and/or tags in some states that offer it.
This was a six-figure car when new, and the interior especially reminds you of that. The smooth wood trim, plush carpeting, and textured stitching on the dash make the experience pure first-class. Comfortable gray leather bucket seats adjust in every possible direction and even have dual memory settings, so it\'s easy to get in your ideal comfort position. The leather-wrapped steering wheel, tilt/telescopic column, and crisp readouts for a very sporty feeling. 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, and this classic comes with a very modern level of protection with dual front airbags, side airbags, anti-lock brakes, traction control, and a deploying roll bar. There are other amenities such as power steering, power windows, power locks, keyless entry/alarm, cruise control, and an upgraded AM/FM/CD stereo. Plus, since this is meant to be a great top-down luxury car, automatic A/C climate control and heated seats allow you to dial-in your ideal comfort setting even when open to the world.
What will always keep this a notable classic is that you have a 6.0-liter V12 engine under the hood. It is built with the well-engineered flagship Mercedes style where you can have a quiet and dignified easy cruiser around town. And then when the back roads open up, this unleashes the full power and huge torque to deliver heart-stopping acceleration. With so few miles, this one is in excellent running condition, and it was even recently given a fluid service at the Mercedes-Benz dealer. The five-speed automatic transmission, fully independent suspension, and four-wheel disc brakes all work together to give you confidence and power no matter if you\'re driving through town or approaching triple-digit speeds.
The sale comes complete with maintenance records and the owner\'s manual packet. Well-kept V12 superiority is rarely this obtainable, and so you know you want to hurry to catch this deal. Call today!!!
