MotoeXotica Classic Cars is pleased to present this beautiful and rarely seen 20. 12 mile 1988 560SL. This European classic is one of the most iconic sports cars in history. with very little design changes throughout it's history.
The Mercedes-Benz SL Roadster is a grand touring roadster manufactured by Mercedes since 1954. The designation SL derives from the German Sportlich-Leicht. (Sport Lightweight) and was first applied to the 300SL. The 560 SL was only sold in the USA. Canada. Japan. and Australia to compensate the reduced output due to the stricter emission laws in these markets. All updated 86–89 models have the advantages of the more modern 4 pot brakes. larger discs. and suspension derived from the W124 sedan. The body itself is built with a modern paint system designed to improve protection from rust.
Finished in a beautiful Signal Red (code 568) the paint remains original & un-restored and shows extremely well. The Signal Red hard top has a an excellent fit and finish. The front bumper with bumperettes have a good fit. with excellent finish. The rear bumper with bumperettes has an excellent fit and finish that shows well too. The black Hartz soft is brand new and was only replaced due to several mouse holes from long term storage. All trim pieces are present and have a brilliant finish with no hazing and or dents that we could see. The weather stripping is still very pliable with very little shrinkage or drying. The U. S. spec headlights and taillights are in very condition with no hazing or cracks.
Inside. the rich Mushroom Tan leather (code 275) seats all look great with no major signs of wear visible. Excellent matching carpet throughout the interior. The genuine wood trim looks great and adds great style to the interior. The door panels and dashboard are matched perfectly with the exterior of the car and look fantastic. The headliner for the hardtop mirrors the rest of the cabin and completes the theme. The weather stripping is still very pliable with very little shrinkage or drying. The original steering wheel is in great condition. Also included. cruise control. anti-theft warning system. automatic climate control. paintcoat preservation. power windows. power locks. first aid kit and Becker Grand Prix AM/FM cassette radio.
This nicely represented Mercedes features a 5. 6 liter 227 hp eight-cylinder engine. Power is transferred to the rear wheels by a 4-speed automatic transmission. Driver assist features are power steering. power four-wheel ABS disc brakes. four-wheel independent suspension and limited slip differential. Silver 15 inch original Mercedes alloys with sport radial tires. Recent work within the last six months include. but not limited to; a new fuel pump. coolant switching unit. and fuel pumps with filters totaling $5. 00. 00
