Gateway Classic Cars of Charlotte, North Carolina, is proud to list this classy 1987 Mercedes-Benz 560SL. Introduced to the market in 1986, the 560SL is still considered an icon among enthusiasts. Its subdued understated elegance mixed with the most potent V8 option for the SL-Class at the time made it one of the most commercially successful Mercedes vehicles up to that point. That is not surprising after getting to know this silver SL a little better.
This beauty consistently defies its age no matter where you look. From the shiny silver paint to the plush maroon leather interior, you'll find it hard to believe how well preserved this convertible is. This car has been taken great care of and comes with maintenance records dating back to when it was new!
Weighing over 3,600 pounds, the SL feels extremely well planted to the pavement. The added weight of all that luxury is no problem for the 5.6 liter V8 that was rated from the factory to produce 227 horsepower with 287-foot pounds of torque. A smooth-shifting automatic transmission keeps that V8 happy no matter what the road conditions are calling for.
Relax while you peacefully cruise, tucked underneath the removable hardtop, or leave that top at home and let the wind blow through your hair. No worries, either way, the soft-top will always be neatly stowed away behind you if mother nature were to change her mind on the day's forecast. Here is your chance to own a legend!
