1987 Mercedes-Benz 560SL Roadster


Manufactured by Mercedes since 1954, the Mercedes-Benz SL Roadster is a great sportscar. The designation SL derives from the German Sport Leicht (or Sport Lightweight), and was first applied to the 300 SL, often referred to as the ‘Gullwing’. All updated 86-89 models have the advantages of the more modern 4 pot brakes, larger discs, and suspension derived from the W124 sedan. The body itself is built with a modern paint system designed to improve protection from rust. The 560SL was only sold in the USA, Canada, Japan, and Australia to compensate the reduced output of the 5.0L due to the stricter emission laws in these markets.

 Sold by Coys to the current owner in 2015, the car was then taken to Spain where it received regular yet sparing use by his family. Purchased with a mere c48,000 miles from new, the odometer now reads just over 49,000 miles. Offered with a hard-top, all sets of keys, extensive history file and handbook.

This is a full option car in beautiful condition; the paint is mostly original, it has never been restored, and would represent for any buyer a superb investment for the future at a relatively small outlay. A beautifully looked-after and unrestored example described by the owner to be in excellent condition throughout.

Sold For £20,250
