A good Benz convertible at this price is always a great find. After
all, this 1995 Mercedes-Benz SL500 is sleek loaded, and comes with
the right extras, including both tops. It all makes for a V8 grand
touring machine that will always make people assume you paid much
more than this value price asks.
The R129 era of the Mercedes SL is arguably its best. It takes its
predecessor's lessons of building a hardy luxury convertible, and
then it adds in a unique and sleek style all its own. But because
it keeps the bright/wide grille and big tri-star up front, it's
also unmistakable part of over a century's worth of lineage. The
two-tone black and silver is an outstanding color combo when you
want to look timelessly upper-class. Flared fenders, good-looking
16-inch alloys, and panels that retain a precision fit are all part
of a package that give this both sporty style and prestige. And
speaking of prestige, the optional color-matched hardtop give this
the distinctive look of a sports coupe. Even the power folding soft
top has a nice look as the black canvas looks good against the
black upper paint.
If you like the way either black roof looks, then you'll certainly
love this with no roof at all. That's because you also have a full
black interior. So this one has a dark sophistication no matter how
you decide to drive it. Supple leather on the bucket seats, plush
carpeting, and nice wood on the center console and doors all make
sure this lives up to your expectation for a coddling Mercedes.
Plus, there are all the best features, power seats with driver's
memory, power windows, power locks, keyless entry/alarm,
tilt/telescope steering column, rear defroster, cruise control, and
provisions for R134a air conditioning (currently needs a service)
that blows through a fully automatic climate control system. They
even upgraded the factory stereo to an AM/FM/CD unit with a USB and
Bluetooth for the best in modern driving music. This one straddles
the line between a true classic age and a more modern machine, and
so you also get the best in safety features. It includes dual front
airbags, anti-lock brakes, and a roll bar that automatically
deploys when it senses danger.
We also love these Mercedes for what's under the hood. The
5.0-liter V8 is a fuel-injected 32-valve DOHC unit, and so it's 315
horsepower has a versatile delivery that's both quick off the line
and has big legs at highway speeds. This all-around powerful player
is mated to a four-speed automatic transmission. This has been
geared for both smooth kick-downs into performance as well as easy
overdrive long-distance comfort. The fully independent suspension,
power steering, and four-wheel disc brakes are all engineered to
accompany this versatile feeling. So you're at home on both twisty
backroads and highways you want to treat as autobahns.
There's a lot to love about this loaded V8 Mercedes SL...and what
you'll love the most is the affordable price. So don't miss your
chance, call today!
