This 1988 Mercedes-Benz 560SL is a highly original example of one the best-recognized symbols of opulence and class. So when it comes with everything from the beautiful paint to cold A/C with an obtainable price, you know this is a quite a deal. People take notice when a 560SL arrives. It's a long-established symbol of distinction, and this one plays into that advantage quite well. The motor runs great and is happily married to a newly rebuilt transmission. The interior is in great shape for its age, very little wear is shown on the seats and dash. This makes a great highway cruiser as this car was built with high speed cruising in mind. The tight independent suspension, comfortable interior, torque monster 5.6L engine and 4 wheel disc brakes make the SL560 an amazing driving experience. 

History:

In 1988, Mercedes-Benz shipped its most powerful SL of the decade to the U.S. in the 560SL. The car was also the heaviest of the 1971-89 R107 SLs body style that Mercedes produced. The new 5.6-liter V-8 engine’s 227 hp did a fine job of mitigating that fact. Top speed was much improved (from 110 mph in the 380SL to 130 mph), and the car was quicker from a standstill to 60 mph by about 4 full seconds. The engine was much torquier, too, which greatly improved the cars’ dynamics. Likewise, the car received a new rear suspension and a limited-slip differential to better handle the added torque and power. Mercedes-Benz also added anti-lock brakes, leather upholstery, an alarm system, and an air bag, all of which better suited the car’s $48,000 price tag. The 560SL sold well with average annual sales exceeding 12,000 units.
