For Sale: 1999 Mercedes-Benz SL500 in Lithia Springs, Georgia

Vehicle Description

There's something great about going premium car shopping on our site, and this 1999 Mercedes-Benz SL500 is the perfect example. It's a loaded premium luxury machine that comes with everything from a fuel-injected V8 motor to a choice of two tops. And it has a long service history that is always desirable. Best of all, you get the full package for one surprisingly affordable price.

The R129 Mercedes SL has an intimidating presence when it looms large in anyone's rear-view mirror. That's due in large part to the wide grille and massive three-pointed star. But from any angle, this car looks like it has unstoppable performance. The precision fit of the body panels has the kind of smooth but sturdy style that a proper Mercedes sports car can provide. And this is the Sports model with desirable upgrades like the 18-inch AMG five-spoke wheels. The Glacier White paint is the factory application, and it remains stylish. This is a highly original example, and so you will find signs of responsible use over the years. But when a car has averaged under 3,100 miles annually, you know it wasn't part of the daily grind. In fact, we have thousands $$$$$ in receipts documenting the right car over the years. It includes over $4k on a new top installed and supporting top parts replaced recently. And the crisp/clean nave blue against the white paint really gives this one an elegant look. There's also a color-matched hardtop that comes with the sale for those times when you want a coupe-like profile.

While this looks great with either roof in place, the appeal of an SL is that you can open it up to the world. So the creamy beige interior makes sure to show off a premium sense of style. Those tan leather bucket seats are powered, heated, and engineered to keep you comfortable on long road trips. They even remember your ideal individual position. The premium feel continues on the real wood trim, power locks, cruise control, power steering, and automatic A/C climate control. That last one is great, because it knows how to keep up with a change in atmosphere, and that's what the car was born to do. When you're using the well-insulated soft top, it can power down in a matter of moments. And power windows mean that you can go from enclosed luxury, to open to the world without ever leaving the driver's seat. 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. This can be seen on features such as the dual front airbags, side airbags, anti-lock disc brakes, and roll bar that automatically pops up when danger is detected.

The 500 in SL500 means a mighty 5.0-liter V8 in the tidy engine bay. The 300-horsepower fuel-injected, DOHC unit has the ideal mix of quick reactions and smooth delivery. And the ultra-tidy presentation of this engine bay - right down to the wires and belts - is another reminder of the level of thoughtful maintenance in this modern classic. The five-speed automatic transmission snaps to attention with the poke of the throttle; the four-wheel power disc brakes provide excellent stopping power; and the multi-link suspension provides impressive handling. In total, this is the ultimate convertible for the driver who wants a tight-handling car for the back roads, but doesn't want to give up supple comfort or space for the golf clubs.

The sale comes complete with the owner's manual and maintenance records, as well as rarely-seen nice extras like the first aid kit and a new spare key. It's time to get a piece of the good life at a great price. Call today!!!
