Description

When Mercedes redesigned its famed SL in 1971, there was a lot of equity behind it – after all, when the incomparable 300SL Coupe and Roadster were built fewer than 20 years before, they set the world on fire. The next-generation 230/250/280SL in 1963 brought Mercedes’ sports car down to Earth, replacing both the incredible 300SL and four-cylinder 190SL.

 

For the next SL, Mercedes started with the chassis of the mid-size “W114/115” model and added the motors from the large “W116” S-Class. The result was a luxurious V8 Convertible that ended up being the longest passenger car series ever produced by Mercedes to date. Despite its age, the final iteration, the 560SL, remained a prized automotive status symbol and an iconic part of the brand’s lineup, until it was finally replaced by the all-new fourth-generation SL in 1990.

 

This lovely top of the range 560SL model is finished in the highly attractive combination of Ivory with a Cognac leather interior. The SL is offered with full service history from first delivery, all relevant books and manuals, two sets of keys, and is presented in truly wonderful condition in all respects.

 

 An extremely stylish modern classic car which can be used and enjoyed throughout the whole year.
