1988 Mercedes-Benz SL-Class FREE SHIPPING!

1988 Mercedes Benz 560SL - With V8 engines increasingly common aboard full-size Mercedes sedans during the late '60s, it was inevitable that a V8-powered SL would appear. But in 1972, few would have expected that the new SL (code-named "R107" inside Mercedes) would define personal luxury cars for almost two decades, and over that time, be powered by eight different engines. The story is that while it was under development at Mercedes, the R107 was referred to as "der Panzerwagen" because it weighed more than 3,400 pounds -- that's 300 or so more than the Pagoda, but still slightly short of a battle tank. Compared to the Pagoda SL, the R107's wheelbase was 2.5 inches longer, and it was about a quarter-inch wider and a quarter-inch lower. However, the styling, with horizontal headlights (paired round ones in North America, single squarish units in the rest of the world) and fluted rear taillights, made the new car appear much wider. Mercedes finally did something about the early SL's lagging performance for the 1986 model year by shoehorning in a new 5.6-liter version of the all-aluminum V8 pumping out 238 horsepower and a healthy 287 pound-feet of peak torque. Beyond that, the new power was routed through a new, silken four-speed automatic transmission, and the 560SL was quickly recognized as the fastest R107 yet.

It could wisely be stated the the Mercedes SL is just about the best classic car one could currently purchase. Where else can you find a well-engineered classic that has all the comforts of a late model vehicle and can be driven daily. Not to mention that they are just plain sexy and appreciate in value with each passing day. And if that wasn't enough, in just 7 short months the beauty will turn 25yrs old and will therefore qualify for highly discounted registration, inspection, and insurance. This exceptional example was owned by a non-smoker, was well maintained, and has a spotless history.
