SUPER CLEAN SL500, METICULOUSLY MAINTAINED, EXCELLENT CONDITION, A MUST SEE CAR!
Beyond the smooth V8, two tops, low mileage, great upgrades, and plenty of custom touches, this 2001 Mercedes-Benz SL500 shows an exceptional car in every detail. In fact, we all would easily pay extra for the piece of mind that comes with knowing the previous owner loved it as much as you will. Which is why the affordable pricing makes this one irresistible.
The moment you laid eyes on this one you knew it was like no other SL you've ever seen before. This is a two-owner car, whose latest possessor actually made his mark on the automotive world creating one-of-a-kind Corvettes. For his personal car, he decided to go for a premium touch with a Mercedes, but he still did not lose the individual spirit. The Firemist color is in showroom-worthy condition, which makes for the perfect canvas for the owner to paint his masterpiece. You can see the custom work the moment the car comes into view. Details like the painted grille and 10 karat gold surrounding the Mercedes tri-star make this one attractively distinctive. This same gold/silver combo is repeated in the custom AMG wheels. In the rear the custom Mercedes logo is also present, and it's joined by a custom rear spoiler. So no matter if you are looking at this one from the front, side, or rear, there is a uniform and premium appearance.
It's hard to find a better color combination with the deep exterior burgundy than a tan leather. This convertible is made for individual luxury, and you know it the moment you sit in the heated bucket seats that are power adjustable for perfect comfort. The ultra low mileage would mean you would expect only minimal wear from minimal seat time. But this one looks even better than expected because the owner rotated the seat bottoms to minimize any signs of use at all! With this level of care in the seating it should be no surprise that places like the leather wheel and real wood center console are just as exceptional. More than just comfort, Mercedes is known for engineering plenty of safety into their cars, and this includes dual front airbags, side airbags, anti-lock disc brakes, and a roll bar that automatically pops up when danger is detected. There are other amenities such as keyless entry, power windows, power steering, power locks, cruise control, automatic climate control, and an AM/FM/cassette/CD changer stereo powerful enough to be heard top down on the highway. And speaking of top, you not only get a nice tan power folding roof, but this one also comes with the color matching hard top that makes your roadster look like a sleek coupe.
The custom and cared for attitude even continues under the hood. You'll love the details like the Mercedes logo on the engine cover painted just like the exterior ones. There's even a pristine hood pad so you can always give the big 5.0-liter its best presentation. The fuel-injected, DOHC V8 makes robust 302 horsepower, it gives you the freedom to choose to keep up with traffic, or easily leave all of them behind. When you do let this one loose, the addition of a Magnaflow exhaust to add a little attitude without losing its Mercedes composure. It has led a pampered life considering this original motor has averaged around 3,400 miles so far. The five-speed automatic transmission snaps to attention with the poke of the throttle, and the multi-link suspension provides impressive handling. In total, this is the ultimate roadster for the driver who wants a tight handling car for the backroads, but doesn't want to give up supple comfort or space for the golf clubs.
This is a highly documented one-of-a-kind Benz convertible, and it even comes with a performance chip if you want to make the most out of the motor. With this must distinction at an affordable price, we know this one will be going quickly. Call today!!!
