THE MERCEDES-BENZ SL

Introduced in 1954, the Mercedes-Benz SL-Class represents the legendary marques Grand Touring car with sporting characteristics. The SL designation derives from the German Sportlich-Leicht, or Sporty and Lightweight in English. The original idea was suggested by American importer Max Hoffman, who perceived a market for a toned-down Gran Prix car tailored to affluent performance enthusiasts in the booming post-war North American market which remains the primary market for the vehicles today. The SL designation was first applied to the 300SL Gullwing and later Roadster, now and immortal and highly-collectible classic.

The fifth generation Mercedes-Benz SL was introduced in 2001 and remained in production until 2008. This all-new SL was referred to by the internal model code R230, and featured a clever and well-engineered retractable hardtop, marketed as the Vario Roof. Powered by an all-aluminum, 24-valve, 5.0-liter V8 engine, the SL500 became a popular sight at posh parts of the world, from Dubai to Saint-Tropez. Featuring exceptional built-quality and sprite performance, these luxurious Grand Tourers share many design cues from the long line of SL Mercedes-Benz motorcars.

THE MOTORCAR OFFERED

Completed at the Mercedes-Benz factory during May of 2005, this exceptional SL500 was delivered new to the U.S. market as a 2006 model-year car. Generously optioned and equipped with the ingenious retractable hardtop, this SL was finished as it appears today, in the classy Silver Metallic over a beige and grey interior. The new Mercedes-Benz SL500 was sold to its first owner in the Rancho Santa Fe area, near San Diego, California. According to the CARFAX report, the Mercedes-Benz remained in California until at least 2016. Today, this fine Mercedes-Benz presents in extraordinary condition with quality finishes throughout, and less 25,000 miles on the odometer. The SL highly optioned and finished in a color very suitable for the luxurious Mercedes-Benz.
