Vehicle Description

2004 Mercedes SL 500

Why This Vehicle is Special

The Mercedes SL 500 that we have here at Skyway Classics is a sinuous, sensuous roadster with dramatic styling. Slide into the cockpit, belt up, press the button on the console and, 16 seconds later, its retractable power steel roof changes it from the open-air fun of a convertible to the quiet comfort of a luxury coupe.

Our SL 500 is packed with every bit of automotive technology that Mercedes has perfected over the past dozen years, and that's a lot of technology. It does everything well and has ultimate power, smoothness, and exclusivity.

The SL500 has more standard equipment than just about any other two-seater in the world today. The SL500's 5.0-liter V8 engine develops 302 horsepower and came with the electronically controlled, magnesium-housing 7G-Tronic 7-speed automatic transmission, the world's first, with closer ratios for quicker acceleration, instantaneous downshifting and higher fuel economy.

To drive a Mercedes SL is to experience a level of driving performance and technical sophistication found in few other cars at any price. Best of all, this sophistication can be enjoyed without having to consult the owner's manual. Just put it in Drive and let the systems work their magic.

The V8 engine in the SL500 is strong, smooth and quiet. Acceleration performance is rapid for a 4000-pound car with 300 horsepower as it is capable of accelerating from 0 to 60 mph in about 6.1 seconds.

The SL roadster is packed with electronic wizardry that works amazingly well: electronic throttle control, antilock braking with electronic brake force distribution, electronic traction control and electronic stability control.

The engine sits in a factory stock appearing engine compartment with all the correct as-came-with parts including the engine cover assembly and other factory parts.


The interior design of the Mercedes-Benz SL is different from the CL coupes and very different from the Mercedes sedans. Two large round instrument pods carry the primary instruments and the instrument panel and center console are well organized and feature the Mercedes COMAND screen that operates the sound system, navigation system, and telephone, with redundant controls on the new steering wheel.

The leather-covered seats that come with the car are superbly comfortable for grand touring and are larger and more sumptuous than those in previous SL models.

Behind the bucket seats are twin lockable storage compartments and putting the roof down is a 16-second process,


The Mercedes SL 500 is surely one of the most beautiful cars in the world and ours is painted in the factory silver from the jutting chin of its front bumper to the four-eyed headlamps to the traditional front fender air intakes to the shoulders over the rear tires to the five-spoke alloy wheels.

The air inlets in the front fenders were inspired by the original 300SL. The narrow, wing-like chrome gills are reminiscent of the first SL Roadsters and are echoed in the hood. The four-eye headlamp pattern has the two lamps on each side melding into one another.

The silver finish looks rich and the styling features a sloping hood that is highlighted by quad round headlamps and a small grill, which blends nicely into the high rear end.

The result is a shape that draws many looks and compliments with the top u or down, and watching it retract is quite a treat in itself.


The Mercedes-Benz SL500 we have here at Skyway Classics is a superb high-performance sports car that takes the place of what was previously considered a sporty car, and there's a big difference between sports and sporty.

The 2004 Mercedes-Benz SL 500 is a technological masterpiece dressed up as a slick German roadsters. They are an affirmation of the company's dedication to maximum performance and a 50th anniversary present to the fortunate few who own one.
