The Autobahn is the federal controlled-access highway system in Germany. The official German term is Bundesautobahn (abbreviated BAB), which translates as "federal motorway". The literal meaning of the word Bundesautobahn is "Federal Auto(mobile) Track". German Autobahnen are widely known for having no federally mandated speed limit for some classes of vehicles. However, limits are posted (and enforced) in areas that are urbanized, substandard, accident-prone, or under construction. On speed-unrestricted stretches, an advisory speed limit (Richtgeschwindigkeit) of 130 kilometers per hour (81 mph) applies. While driving faster is not illegal as such in the absence of a speed limit, it can cause an increased liability in the case of a collision (which mandatory auto insurance has to cover); courts have ruled that an "ideal driver" who is exempt from absolute liability for "inevitable" tort under the law would not exceed Richtgeschwindigkeit.
For consignment, a rare Mercedes Benz with 2015 being the only year this car was produced, and even then, a mere 400 were made. We give you the 2015 Mercedes Benz SL550 White Arrow. This car is capable of whisking you from Berlin to Cologne with seemingly unlimited power and on road nimble behavior. This is courtesy a 4.7 liter twin turbo V8. Comfort is also emphasized with Nappa leather, driver assistance package and many other features that go along with this White Arrow edition of the Super-Leicht 550.
Designo Diamond White bathes the sculpted steel, aluminum, glass and composite materials that make up this sports car. A large 3 pointed star is within the rakish grille that offers two tiers of openings for extra air to flow freely into the engine bay. Our consigner has added 3M Protector which seamlessly protects the hood, front bumper, and mirrors. This swept back look continues for the windscreen which is neatly tucked in behind the dual vented hood. More black venting can be seen on the sides of the front fenders, and some sporty chromed fins run through these along with nearby White Arrow badging. 19 inch AMG twin 7 spoke wheels in mint condition, never curbed, are wrapped in well heeled rubber, and show the large disc brakes within their design. On top a smoked glass panoramic roof which magically can retract into the rear of this car, offers plenty of light to enter when this top is in the up position. On back a nicely rounded rear deck has a V shaped tail light wrapping around each corner of the rear quarter, and within the rear roll pan which is black, dual chrome tipped exhaust exits reside. All this gives us an excellent visual performance with nary a dent or ding allowed to happen by a very particular consigner.
Bedecked with plenty of bells and whistles and a use for all of them, beautifully designed door panels welcome us inside. Nice usage of chrome accenting, white Nappa leather and black molded vinyl, house power windows, seats, mirrors, and even an illuminated door sill to aid you in a night time access or egress. Inside MB designers made sure you will be in ergonomic heaven with all the controls available at your fingertips or feet. Like new black and white Nappa leather covered high back and extra bolstered seats which are nice and wide, cradle you in this cabin. These seats are heated, cooled, and offer a massage for those longer jaunts on the A7. A beautiful center console which starts behind the buckets with a tamboured storage area, then races forward between the seats with more storage, the shift lever with the various mode selections taking place right next door with a wheel styled “mouse” which controls the 7 inch display and all the features available. A few of which are active blind spot assist, active lane keeping assist, Bluetooth connectivity, navigation, back up camera and digital sound system displays all in one screen. Chromed eyeball vents with a 4 pointed star inserts pepper the dash which features deeply set digital display instrumentation within a padded white stitched leather dash with a unique MB design. In the top center of the dash is a hooded chronograph clock which tells you you need to press the accelerator if you want to be on time! Bang and Olufsen provide the sound and a shout out to the roof where the roof's glass panel which has Sky Control which acts like an expensive pair of sunglasses and darkness as it gets brighter outside. Black piano lacquer trim can be seen throughout as well as black carpeting flooding the floors, all in excellent pristine condition.
The 4.7-liter twin-turbo V-8 in the SL550 whips out 429 horsepower, up strongly from the prior car's normally aspirated base V-8. More astonishing is the torque, which escalates from 391 pound-feet to 516 lb-ft. Power's capped at a 6300-rpm redline, but most of it is available at 1600 rpm, giving the SL 550 extremely powerful acceleration. Mercedes pegs 0-60 mph times at 4.5 seconds, almost a second quicker than the previous year's edition, and top speed in this model is limited to 130 mph in the USA. For the shifting a 7-speed automatic 7G Tronic Plus with padded shifters gets things going in a hurry. The driver can choose from manual, eco, or sport-shift modes. A 2.65 final drive makes this powerful car also very efficient on the high test only petrol front.
Typical of German engineering, smooth ground effects panels cover most of the inner workings of this car. Independent, coil spring suspension is all around as are power disc brakes which have a pre safe braking mode.
Because our consigner requested we do not put any additional mileage on this car, we need to take his word for the drive-ability section. We can say he drove it here so it runs! (but of course!). We assume in present condition all functions were working just perfectly. Our photographer loved the soft close doors function, and as noted many driving modes are available.
Definitely the crème' de la crème' with reference to a classy sports car that puts on oodles of convenience factors, awesome power, and comfort which is unsurpassed. Low miles and a real looker, the German engineers got it right for this 1 year off beauty. Schnell! Schnell!
