1986 Mercedes-Benz 560SL

Description

When Mercedes redesigned its famed SL in 1971, there was a lot of equity be- hind 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 model 560SL is finished in the highly attractive com- bination of Smoke Silver metallic with a tan leather interior and comes with its factory hard top. The SL is offered with all relevant service books and manuals, and is presented in excellent condition in all respects.

A wonderful stylish modern classic car which can be used and enjoyed through- out the whole year.
