Vehicle Description


Please call Greg directly at 513-200-9226 with any questions about this car.

Seven Hills Motorcars is very proud to offer this beautiful 1999 Mercedes Benz SL500 in excellent condition with only 85,780 original miles. It looks spectacular, runs great, and is an excellent driver. The Mercedes is finished in the beautiful and desirable color combination of Silver over Grey interior. This is also the correct and original color scheme. This SL500 comes with both the power soft-top and auxiliary hardtop. The original manuals, books, 2 keys and remotes, tools, jack, and spare are also still with the car. The original mileage is also verified not only by the condition of the car, but also by the clear Ohio title, pictured in this ad, showing the mileage as "Actual."

We have driven this Mercedes almost 1,000 miles in the past couple months. During that time the car was completely reliable, had no issues, and was a true pleasure to drive.

There is also a copy of the AutoCheck report in this ad. The report is totally clean, shows no accident history, and verifies the low mileage. Many in the classic car industry are saying that this body style Mercedes SL, the R129, is the next classic generation of Mercedes that will start going up in value. One could easily buy this car now and sell it for more than the purchase price in years to come. Please peruse all of the photos, video, and other information in this ad to get a true sense of clean and nice this SL500 really is.

As a side note, this Mercedes is not a dealer auction vehicle. We hand pick each car after careful inspection. Our classics come from owners who expect their cars to go to someone that will give the vehicle the same care and attention as they did. We invite and encourage you to examine the car in person or have the car inspected. Please take the time to scrutinize each picture. We photograph each vehicle to the greatest extent so you can feel confident about your purchase. If you have a question about the SL500, just give us a call.


The Silver exterior is in fantastic condition. As one can see in the photos, the paint has a brilliant gloss, deep shine, and smooth finish. Both doors open and shut nicely; it has that solid Mercedes touch and feels like a vault door closing. The car exhibits nice body panel fit overall. The original alloy wheels are in great shape with a brilliant finish and no curb rash. The tires are literally brand new with less than 10 miles on them and are correctly sized 245/45R17. There are no major imperfections that have been intentionally excluded from the photos. As one can see in the many photos of the underside, this SL500 is very clean underneath. We have also included specific photos of the rockers, lower front and rear quarter panels, and other areas on the car most prone to rust to show how nice it looks.


The Grey leather interior of the SL500 looks absolutely fantastic. The seats are great condition and look just as nice in person as they do in the photos with no split seams, holes, or excessive wear. The seat is not overly worn in the typical area on the bolster where the driver gets in and out. The wood grain throughout the interior looks awesome with no delamination. The carpet looks great with no stains, rips, or holes. All of the gauge faces are crisp and clean the lenses are crystal clear. The door panels look wonderful with no cracks or splits, and both door pulls are solid. The black convertible soft-top is in great condition. The rear windows are clear with no yellowing or fogginess. The dash is in excellent condition with no cracks, fading, or sun fading. The original radio work well and gets good reception. Most importantly, the dash has never been cut or modified for an aftermarket installation. Please note the power antenna works as well. This car has never been smoked in; there is no aroma of cigarettes what so ever and no burn marks. The trunk is very clean and nicely detailed with the original Mercedes tool roll, Mercedes first aid kit, spare tire, rim, and jack.

The excellent condition of this interior is a huge testament to the meticulous care and attention this Mercedes has received throughout its life and another great verification of the low original mileage.


This SL500 appears to be in very nice mechanical condition and it is ready to be enjoyed. As stated above, we have recently put almost 1,000 miles on this Mercedes with no issues at all. The engine starts right away every time and idles smooth. It is an exceptional driver that feels great on the road and at highway speeds. In the video one can observe the car accelerating on the highway up to about 70mph, shifting through all the gears, braking to a stoplight, and going through some curves. Please note that it runs great, there are no strange noises or vibrations, and the car performs quite nice overall. The brakes are responsive and do not pull to one side or the other. There is no blue smoke when starting or driving the car. It runs cool and does not overheat. Also, the engine bay is clean, nicely detailed, and correct as one can see from the photos.

Please note in the video the dash warning lights; they light up when the key is first turned on and then go off when the engine is started just as they should. There are no "check engine" lights that stay on. The horn works as do the fog lights, headlights, brights, turn signals, interior lights, indicators, dash lights, wipers, power locks, power seats in all directions, power mirrors in all directions, heated seats, roll bar, rear window defroster, and blower. The a/c works and blows cold. The power convertible top works properly and the entire operation of raising and lowering the automatic power top can be viewed in the video in this ad. All of the gauges work and the clock keeps time. This Mercedes has lots of power with the 5.0 liter V8 engine. Not enough can be said as to how much of a pleasure it is to drive this car, especially with the top down on a beautiful day.

Overall Condition

Overall, this 1999 SL500 is in excellent condition and is a true bargain at our asking price. This car is a premium example; it is very clean with low miles and a clean history with no accidents. This Mercedes is a great value and will only appreciate over time. Someone could easily enjoy this vehicle for several years and sell it for more than the purchase price with minimal effort.

Thank you for looking and please do not hesitate to email or call with any questions.
