There is nothing better than driving open top on a beautiful summer day, and Mercedes built the perfect cars for this purpose with their SL series.
The origin of this series was with the legendary 300sl Roadster and translated through the 190sl and the Pagodas to the 107 series. A pedigree to be proud of.
The Mercedes-Benz W107 SL earned its merits through its unparalleled build quality, and these models were nicknamed ‘Panzerwagens’ for a reason. When building these models, more and more emphasis was placed on safety, which gave the SL some extra weight. But what the car sacrificed in terms of speed and pure acceleration was more than made up for by the extra comfort they were given. That these cars were appreciated by the public was proved by almost 20 years of production, which together with the G-class is the longest model produced by Mercedes.
The 560SL is the end of the series with the heaviest engine that was placed in this model. This robust V8 was introduced especially for the American market, and was thus also only available there. This powerhouse perfectly combined comfort with sportiness, all wrapped up in a timeless classic design without any unnecessary frills.
This 560SL on offer here comes from the US and has been mechanically and cosmetically overhauled. The interior trim and seats are in beautiful original condition and not, like many other American SLs, consumed by the heat. The silver metallic paint is also still in a beautiful original condition with a beautiful shine. The Black mohair soft top has recently been renewed, which completes the look of this car.
Key on the ignition, soft top down and enjoy driving open top: this is what this Mercedes guarantees.
