1999 Mercedes Benz SL500 Roadster
The Mercedes-Benz SL-Class is a grand touring car manufactured by Mercedes Benz since 1954. The designation SL derives from the German Sportlich-Leicht, which translates to lightweight sport. With unlimited speed limits prevalent in Europe, individuals who owned such cars could quickly travel from point A to point B. This is the true definition of grand touring, meaning traveling in luxury and style at high speed.
This 1999 very nice condition sport version has been meticulously documented with regards to service, and upkeep. A hardtop, convertible top, and electrically operated top down give the owner 3 different cars to choose from. All full of options, and conveniences, wrapped in red.
Enveloped in beautiful red, the exterior of this car looks like it just came from the showroom. Included is the optional hardtop, which is electronically released and re-locked on with the touch of a button. Upon its removal, you have the convertible which is sight unseen when folded electronically behind the driver and passenger. Mercedes 5 spoke alloy wheels are on all 4 corners, and the exterior package is completed with simply stated elegance.
Leather light yellow bucket seats, with plush padding and stitching allow the driver and passenger an almost endless array of recline, height, temperature and stiffness options at the touch of a button. There a storage area behind the two bucket seats, as well as a wonderful fully lined trunk in light yellow Velour. Doors are lined with a tasteful mixture of light yellow leather, cloth, and highly lacquered burl. This burl can also be seen in the center console housing the stereo, CD player, window controls, top actuator as well as the shifter. The dash is a beautiful complimentary green and brown leather. Analog gauges keep you informed of all major functions. A leather wrapped sport steering wheel can be adjusted to ergonomic alignment for the driver, no matter what's size they are.
A 302ci 5-liter V8 drinks from an electronically controlled fuel injection system. The smooth as silk 5-speed automatic transmission can whisk you efficiently, or sporty down the highway. McPherson Strut front suspension, and independent rear suspension, provide a ride that fools you into exactly how fast or slow you are really traveling. 4-wheel disc brakes stop this luxury sports car on a dime.
A fine example from 1999 Mercedes Benz engineering, that has remained timeless. Plenty of options, and conveniences adorn this car, and the color combination with the contrast of the exterior red, and the wonderful mixture of materials all in the light yellow/light brown color way. Upon looking at the records the consigner kept, you can be assured exactly how well this car has been cared for.
