THE MERCEDES-BENZ 560SL

When Mercedes redesigned its famed SL in 1971, there was a lot of equity behind it—after all, when the incomparable 300SL Coupe and Roadster were built fewer than 20 years before, they set the world on fire. In 1963, the next-generation 230/250/280SL 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.

THE MOTORCAR OFFERED

This highly original 1989 model-year 560SL was sold new in Toronto, Ontario, by Mercedes-Benz Canada to its original owner on December 1st, 1988. A detailed caretaker of their beloved 560SL, this family would cherish this car for over 30 years while maintaining excellent upkeep of it. Today, the car presents beautifully in its original Signal Red exterior paint with a fitted black soft top and black leather interior. Furthermore, it is accompanied by its factory hardtop, and the 560SL retains its rare optional heated seats. The car has been the recipient of recent service. Four new tires have been installed and Fluids and filters have been replaced. The original tires have been preserved for provenance and will be included with the sale of the car.

This exceptional 560SL has been carefully enjoyed and preserved in its original condition since new. Accompanying this motorcar is a comprehensive documentation binder, which includes the original purchase agreement and order form, service book, metal vehicle ID Warranty plate, owner's manuals in pouch, roof tools and tool roll. The spare wheel has never been on the ground.

With less than 17,300 kilometers (10,800 miles) from new, this 560SL presents extremely well. As such, this high-quality Mercedes-Benz from the very last production year of the legendry model is ideally suited for open top touring with nearly all the power and amenities of a modern car. All the while, the R107 is uniquely elegant and stylish in a way only a classic Mercedes-Benz SL can capture.
