Description

Here's a luxury European hot rod that doesn't become available very often. This 1984 Mercedes-Benz 500SL has everything you come to love from the R107 convertible, and it gets even better with the hot V8 of this Euro-spec model.

Yes, you read this right, it is the desirable 500SL! This model designation of the R107 Mercedes-Benzes was never officially sold over here, so it's a rare sight on our side of the Atlantic. It has the European bumpers that hug the front and rear of the car much better than the U.S.-spec models. The flush-fitting headlights really form a nice front end. And the rear spoiler is a cool piece that Mercedes gave these true sports models. But more than just an interesting personal import, this car is desirable for its upgrades. For example, the high-polish Lorinser 17-inch wheels add to this car's speedy flair. This was also changed to a vibrant red later in life with a high-gloss professional application. The color looks nice with the high contrast black folding roof and with the matching red hardtop.

For the same reason why the black soft top looks so sophisticated is why there is no better look than the black leather interior. Beyond just the ideal color combo, this Mercedes is desirable because it has received the right kind of care. The seats, door panels, sun visors, and carpeting all look nice. The 500SL was one of the highest status symbols in Europe, and it's a quality built that feels good loaded with features. You get modern conveniences such as power windows, power steering, provisions for factory air conditioning (will need servicing), and an upgraded AM/FM/CD stereo. Plus, as a true euro-spec model, you'll love showing off features the factory only offered outside of the USA, like the rear seat package.

Under the hood is the 5.0-liter fuel-injected SOHC V8. Those who understand Mercedes SLs know how important this powerplant is. The 500SL was the quickest version of the R107 Mercedes offered around the world, and the USA never officially received them. With less regulation on the home market (the exhaust headers look more like a muscle car) the engineers at the German plants were free to make the lighter 500SL also more powerful than the U.S.-spec 560SLs. The result is this is not only a better sports car, but also you get extra nods of approval from true Mercedes aficionados. Beyond the hotter engine is the ideal Mercedes fully-independent chassis that feels sporting without ever getting harsh on the road. Add in four-wheel power disc brakes, a four-speed automatic transmission w/overdrive, and BF Goodrich ZR-rated tires, and this is truly a luxury and sports machine built for the grand tour.

The sale comes complete with nice features like the owner's manual and a car cover. You're looking at a classic luxury drop-top that has added speed and distinction. So this European star won't wait long at this value price. Call today!!!
