For Sale: 2004 Mercedes-Benz SL500 in Ft Worth, Texas

Vehicle Description

This 2004 Mercedes SL500 is that powerful, elegant, sophisticated, and all-around sinister droptop that knows how to make an entrance. A legendary German convertible with only 35,750 miles on the clock, this SL500 has been impeccably cared for through the years, and because it's always been a fair-weather weekend car it's still in incredible shape today. All that power, luxury, and gorgeous style for the cost of a 5-year old Hyundai? Yes please!

The 5th generation R230 form offers all the precisely refined German engineering and style you could possibly want, and a combination of great care and shelter over the years (this car has never left sunny NV and TX) has yielded some definite benefits, leaving this amazing SL looking about as close to 'like new' as you'll ever see in an 18-year-old car. The Pewter Metallic Silver shade is in very clean form, showing a super nice, miles-deep shine and no signs of any major mishaps to detract from its appearance. In fact, other than a very small dent in the hood (probably the result from a squirrel clumsily dropping its acorn on it, but regardless, it's a minor imperfection even a novice PDR professional could pop out in 5 minutes) and the usual minor road debris at the front end, we really haven't found anything to complain about on this Merc. Take a look from up front and you'll see that the headlights sit behind clear lenses - always a good sign of having been spared from exposure to the elements - and the universally recognized Mercedes badge is sharp and unpitted as it rests in the center of the front grille. The exterior alignment on this SL500 is in top form all over, in fact - you won't find an uneven gap between panels or anything off kilter anywhere, and the doors shut with that typical German 'THUD' we've come to expect from these up-market cars. Mercedes mastered the retractable hard top (marketed as the Vario Roof) as few other manufacturers have, refining their engineering to arrive at a finished result that raises and lowers without issue, seals well and is free from the random noises that often plague its competition.

The gorgeous black leather interior provides a very nice contrast with the silver exterior, and as you might already expect in such a low-mileage car, it's in great shape too. There aren't many signs of wear on the leather surfaces of the contoured power bucket seats, nor on the center console sitting between them, and even the carpet lining the floor looks like it has been treated with respect since new. Mercedes never was a company to cut corners as far as comfort and convenience features are concerned, and this SL500 is no exception - you'll find a navigation system inside the multi-function LCD monitor, cruise control, power locks/windows/seats/mirrors, and cruise control on board, as well as dual-zone air conditioning that's blowing strong and cold. Pretty much, every single power option and luxury you could get in 2004 is in tow, and all that woodgrain you see on the door panels and center console is real, not the faux applique that plasters so many new cars today. The interior's level of functionality is impressive - all of the gauges in the instrument cluster function as intended behind crystal clear lenses, as do all control knobs and switches, and the cockpit is laid-out in a very driver-centric orientation. Out back, the trunk area looks to be in good order, with clean gray carpeting lining its floor and walls, and even though there's not a ton of space back there it's more than you'll typically find in a 2-seat roadster.

A powerful 5.0 liter V8 sits underneath the hood in a very clean engine bay and it's a potent performer that provides plenty of acceleration - Mercedes equipped it with 302 horsepower and 339 torque, which is quite a bit for a roadster with relatively light curb weight. The powerplant starts up easily and runs smoothly - it's been regularly serviced so it's at the top of its game - and it teams with a 7-speed automatic transmission to provide a great driving experience. The SL500's low profile and finely tuned Active Body Control suspension combines with its smooth power steering and driveline traction control to make it a blast to take through turns, while its ABS 4-wheel disc braking system brings it to prompt stops when called upon. This sharp looking German drop top rides on a set of 18-inch AMG wheels outfitted with staggered 255/40/18 front and 285/35/18 rear Continental Extreme Contact tires.

This 2004 Mercedes SL500 features a combination of style and performance that's sure to bring a smile to your face, all at an incredibly reasonable value. Call today!
