We have a rather lovely Mercedes-Benz 500SL available. The car first hit the road in the USA in 1983 and has been immaculately maintained.
The bodywork is in good shape with the original thin panelwork. The bodywork has some signs of normal use commiserate with its age and mileage. The chrome bumpers and bodywork rubber are both neat. The car has a black hood in good working order, providing a good seal when down. The 500SL has its original rims shod in correctly sized rubber with ample profile. The interior is completely original and gives off an aura of fine patina. As was the rule with this generation of Mercedes-Benz models, the interior was made to last into perpetuity. Looking at the 500SL’s equipment it is clear this car was aimed at the top market segment. The car has climate control, heated seats, electrically adjustable seats, electric windows, cruise control as well as the ever-popular and rare rear bench.
Mechanically the car was also clearly aimed at the higher market segment with the 500SL being the top of the range SL at the time. The car has a 5.0 V8 engine attached to a 4-speed automatic gearbox. The engine is fitted with Bosch D-Jetronic fuel injection and develops 240 Ps. The unit is, like the interior, built to last forever. In our case with nearly 120,000 miles on the clock, we would say it is just about nicely run-in. The large bore engine always delivers more than enough torque and drags the 500SL effortlessly up to speeds of 225 km/hr. It is nice to know the 500SL also has ABS to shed all that speed. The brakes are therefore responsive and the suspension gives the car a delightfully comfortable ride together with the automatic’s silky soft gear change.
The car comes with its owner’s manual and factory fitted Sony car radio. In short, this is an immaculate Mercedes-Benz 500SL ready to be enjoyed for many more miles.
