The Mercedes-Benz SL is a personal expression of luxury that
announces to the world that you are a person of wealth and
distinction. So when you can get this low mileage 2005 Mercedes
SL500 at a budget car price, the public impression doesn't
change... but now you can afford the country club dues, too.
Brilliant Silver is a great Mercedes color. It reminds us of the
German race cars and the legendary Silver Arrows. So this car has
power and prestige in the first impression. This was designed to
look sporty with the folding hardtop up or down. You see it in
everything from the overall aggressive forward-leaning profile to
the details like side air outlets inspired by the original 300SL
gullwing. The car looks quite good right now. You may choose to
take some of the leftover money from the value price for detailing
or touch-ups, but there is an undeniable fundamental attraction.
This car has averaged less than 4k miles annually and it has always
been with the same family (the history shows three owners going
between a husband, wife, and business.) So you have a well-kept car
with a fully known history including Mercedes dealer maintenance -
and that's the cornerstone of desirability in Mercedes
This SL has earned its reputation as a luxury cruiser through a
long list of desirable features. The beige leather interior
harmonizes with both the exterior color and the walnut wood on the
center console. And you will love how the power seats will remember
your ideal driving position. But there's another side to Mercedes
amenities that are always a nice bonus. This premium marque is
known for engineering plenty of safety into their cars, and this
can be seen on items such as the dual airbags, side airbags, the
anti-lock brakes, and the roll bar that automatically pops up when
danger is detected. There are other amenities such as power
windows, power locks, keyless entry, cruise control, rear wind
blocker, dual-zone automatic climate control, and an LED
infotainment system with a stereo powerful enough to be heard at
Autobahn level speeds with the top down. And speaking of the top,
the electronic folding roof was one of the best inventions Mercedes
ever put in the SL. It gives you the security and style of a coupe
when you want, and with the electronic folding roof stowed, there's
still room in the trunk for your weekend bags.
The engine bay is filled with beautiful V8 power. The 5.0-liter V8
makes 300+ horsepower. It's a dual overhead cam setup that's made
to be versatile no matter if you're getting up from a stoplight or
passing on the highway. The five-speed automatic transmission snaps
to attention with the poke of the throttle, and the multi-link
suspension provides impressive handling. The power steering,
four-wheel disc brakes with drilled rotors, and Michelin Pilot
Sport tires all work in harmony with Benz's engineering to deliver
a confident drive. It's this ability to be both powerful and
composed in all conditions why the SL500 is a timeless symbol of
Complete with owner's manual, this is the car you promised you'd
always have. Now's the time for the good life at a great price.
