For sale in Dallas/Ft.Worth showroom is this 1981 Mercedes Benz-380SL. In 1980, Mercedes-Benz revamped its SL lineup of sporting luxury convertibles with the introduction of the 380SL. The 380 was an enhancement of the R107 chassis, which was first used in 1972 by the 350SL and then by the 450SL. This was an extremely popular model in the U.S. for its combination of V-8 power, refined luxury and sporty underneath carriage. The 380-SL was a lighter then its predecessor 450-SL, a 120 pounds lighter to be exact. Thus, it’s new V-8 3.8 liter engine was plenty of power for these vehicles. The new engine was designed with emissions controls in mind while the 450SL’s mill was not, which meant that the two engines were relatively equal in terms of power (155 hp in the 380SL vs. 160 hp in the 450SL) despite the difference in their displacements. Performance was similar for the two cars, as was fuel economy. This 1981 Mercedes Benz 380 SL has been family owned and passed down for over 25 years. All the paint has held up very well over the years. The interior is all original and pops with a bit of woodgrain installed in the dash. Another real stand out feature on this vehicle is those Dayton spoked wired wheels! Most certainly is going to catch anyone’s eye who sees them.

2003 Mercedes-Benz SL55  AMG

2003 Mercedes-Benz SL55 AMG


Engine: 5.5L V8 F 24V
Transmission: 5 Speed Automatic
Mileage: 86,408 ( actual )

Gateway Classic Cars of Orlando Florida is proud to offer This 2003 Mercedes Benz SL55 AMG. Though most people do not realize the Mercedes Benz company’s origins are rooted in the early racing scene. One of probably the most notorious stories was in 1934 Alfred Neubauer, head engineer at the time, directed his crew to grind off all the paint on their factory backed race cars. It had nothing to do with looks but about weight. The company has come a long way since 34 with their biggest priorities being luxury and safety. This 2003 has both but those three little letters behind it is what makes this droptop so special. This 03 has a clean AutoCheck and is ready to hit the open road. Under the hood is the hand-built Supercharged 5.5 LTR V8 that is putting out just shy of 500 ponies. Capable of turning out quarter miles times in the high 12’s this is one luxury hotrod that is as fast as it is beautiful. Of course, with that kind of speed brakes are not your average setup. The 14.2-inch rotors on the front and 13’s in the rear are drilled and vented to stay cool under pressure. The eight piston calipers increase the clamping force tremendously and bringing this droptop down to a halt in very respectable distances. Hit the button and watch as the AMG becomes a transformer, the trunk kicks up as the steel roof is lowered away. Hit the other button and watch as the hideaway roll bar comes up. The interior is full of fun stuff with the bucket seats being covered in some of the nicest leather you have ever seen. If you have been wanting to get one of the nicest fastest droptop’s to ever hit the streets but can’t justify the 6 figure selling prices on newer ones. This well-maintained example could be the right way to go. Options on this 2003 Mercedes Benz Sl55 AMG include, AC, AM/FM/CD, Power Convertible Top, Power Windows, Power Brakes, Power Steering, Cruise Control, Tilt Steering, Leather Interior, and Aluminum Alloy Wheels wrapped in Radial Tires. This 2003 Mercedes Benz SL55 AMG is for sale in our Orlando Showroom and can be seen in greater detail including 100+ HD pictures and an HD video at www.GatewayClassicCars.com. For additional information please call our knowledgeable staff at (407)771-2000 or email us at Orlando@GatewayClassicCars.com.
