1992 Mercedes-Benz 500-Series 500 SL 5.0 (STD is Estimated)
Pay attention to one of those few lucky times that you can fulfill a luxury and performance promise without breaking the bank. This 1992 Mercedes 500SL is a modern classic that will never leave you wanting. The SL has a long history of being sleek, purposeful, and dignified, with a healthy dose of performance under the surface. The subtle two-tone gray seems to capture this attitude perfectly. It has been enjoyed over the last quarter-century, but it still has the kind of sophistication that you can just tell it's tipping its hat to classic Mercedes-Benz machines before it. And part of this timeless elegance is from a history of taking the time to make vehicles correctly. The doors close with a precision usually reserved for cars with solid roofs; the panel gaps are so tight you can't even fit a fingertip in them; and the imposing grille with three-pointed star is exceptionally crisp. And the upgrade to 19-inch chrome wheels lets you know that this engineering marvel also has flair. This has earned its reputation as a luxury cruiser through a long list of desirable features. Comfortable tan leather bucket seats adjust in every possible direction, and they even have memory settings so that you're instantly comfortable. And a great grand touring machine also needs to fit into modern times. So this classic was ahead of its time with plenty of safety features such as dual airbags, anti-lock disc brakes, and a roll bar that automatically pops up when danger is detected. There are other amenities such as power windows, power steering, power locks, cruise control, and fully automatic climate control to keep you comfortable any time the top is down. And speaking of top, you not only get newer black electronic folding roof, but this one also comes with the color-matched hard top that makes your roadster look like a sleek coupe. The 500 in SL500 refers to the 5.0 liter DOHC V8 that lives under the hood. The consignor states this is the original motor, and with the tidy presentation, we have little trouble believing that. This multi-valve motor produces around 320 horsepower, and so it has the legs to offer extra power even at highway speeds. Mated to a four-speed automatic transmission, it gives you the choice of enjoying overdrive comfort, or leaving everyone behind with just the prod of the accelerator. Plus, the multi-link fully independent suspension and four-wheel disc brakes provides impressive handling. In total, this is the ultimate roadster for the driver who wants a tight handling car for the backroads, but doesn't want to give up supple comfort or space for the golf clubs. This is the exact way to enjoy fast with class. And we won't even tell anyone how little you actually paid to enter the upper echelon. Don't miss this deal, call today!
