The 560SL was the last in the venerable R107 series (also known as the W107), which ran from 1972–89. In 1986, Mercedes shipped only 11,631 units of its most powerful SL of the decade, and of the chassis type, to the United States. At 3781 pounds, the 560SL was also the heaviest of the SLs, but its new 5.6-liter V-8 engine—with 227 horsepower and 287 lb-ft of torque—had little trouble with the extra weight. In fact, it had a top speed of about 140 mph.
Today you have the opportunity of purchasing this stunning head turner that is sure to be the envy of your social circle. This beauty, who we affectionately refer to as "Sofia" ,is being offered reluctantly for sale.

Her interior is deep mahogany brown leather. Her exterior is a silver beige. Her body is accented with enough chrome to blind you in full sun. She has been garage kept. Both the rag top and the hard top are original and in excellent condition. The hard top has been kept on a custom stand designed specifically for the 560SL and covered. Stand is included in sale.

New door latch, truck latch. She has been well cared for and loved. She is a true luxury sedan with a sporty disposition. Asking 22k
