GR Auto Gallery is pleased to offer this 1987 Mercedes-Benz 560SL
for your consideration. The top dog of the SL line was the 560SL
that was powered by a 5.6L V8 that produced 227hp and could hit a
top speed of nearly 140mph. It was smooth as butter and was mated
exclusively to a silky automatic transmission.
The 560SL also featured a revised rear suspension and a
limited-slip differential to better handle the added torque and
power. Mercedes also added anti-lock brakes, leather upholstery,
and an alarm system. Today, many enthusiasts gravitate towards the
560SL as it retains some of the original lines of the pagoda SL's
while carrying with it all of the R107's advances.
This example is finished in Signal Red and features accenting
chrome throughout the exterior. This 560SL comes with a removable
hardtop and a soft top. The hardtop is in good condition and is
surprisingly easy to remove.
Inside the vehicle is a black leather interior with comfortable
seating for two. It features automatic climate control, factory
instrumentation, power windows, power locks, factory Becker radio,
and power mirrors.
The Mercedes-Benz SL series started out as the top of the line
sports luxury tourer that offered both performance and comfort. The
third generation SL was called the R107 chassis and is one of the
most recognizable Mercedes of all time. Produced from 1971 all the
way to 1989, the R107 lived a long and cherished life. The United
States was an extremely popular market for the personal luxury
coupe, and almost ? of all SL's were sold here. While not as quick
or pretty as their European cousins, the US market SL's still
represented the cream of the personal luxury car crop. They are
elegant, stylish, sporty, performance-driven and for the time
being, relatively affordable. There isn't a better way to enjoy
summer than in this 560SL Roadster. According to the selling owner,
this example has undergone restoration at a shop in Palm Beach, FL.
