The R230 was a huge step forward compared to its predecessor, the R129. The SL enthusiasts also call this model the Concorde moment for the SL. Someone must have thought so too when this extremely tasteful copy was ordered new in the United States.

The car was ordered in this timelessly beautiful color scheme consisting of a black metallic paint and a beige leather interior. This specific SL is also equipped with the full leather interior, so the top of the dashboard is also covered with leather. The car is also equipped with a 5.0 liter V8 engine, which in this case is coupled to a five-speed automatic transmission. The car has only 22,500 miles on the clock and is in absolute mint condition.

The bodywork looks perfect. All fits are correct and the fully electric convertible top closes just as well as on the day the car was delivered new. The black paint is in absolute top condition, apart from some very light traces of use. The SL stands on beautiful chrome-plated five-spoke rims that match the luxurious look of the car.

The engine is more than sufficiently powerful under all conditions. The V8 delivers 460 newton meters from 4,700 rpm and no less than 306 hp at 5,600 rpm. You will understand that this engine makes light work of this wonderful open tourer. The driving experience of the SL can even be described as luxurious. The SL500 is not a pure sports car but a real Gran tourer. Or as the Germans even describe it so beautifully, this car is all about the “Wohlfühlen”. The adjustable chassis contributes to this to a large extent.

There is no other way, because the inside of the car is also an oasis of luxury. It starts when you get in where the full leather interior is the first thing you see. Then you will see the Command system which was extremely advanced for the time. The counters are equipped with digital screens, which was unheard of at the time. In addition, the SL naturally has a multifunction steering wheel, heated seats, bluetooth audio, xenon, rain and light sensor, electrically adjustable seats and mirrors with memory function and a plethora of other options.

Finally, this SL500 comes complete with a full board folder and a set of spare keys. Thanks to the low mileage, you can enjoy this beautiful piece of German engineering for decades to come. Along the way, you’ll enjoy a driving experience that modern cars simply can’t offer anymore, yet is more than sufficiently modern. In short, a beautiful SL500 with a very low mileage in a beautiful color scheme.
