1986 Mercedes Benz 560 SL

one of the best all-original 560 SLs available . . . stunning
J. J. Best Banc & Co.

Based on the venerable R107 platform, the Mercedes-Benz 560 SL was first introduced in 1986 exclusively in the United States, Japan and Australian markets. It offered the most powerful engine in any SL during the 1980s, a 227 hp, 5.5-liter V8. This enabled the 560 SL to achieve a top speed of 130 mph and accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in 6.5 seconds, both slightly faster than previous SL models despite its increased weight. That same model year, the rear suspension and limited slip differential were improved to meet the requirements for the increased power.

In addition to performance, the 560 SL offered a level of safety and luxury fitting the Mercedes Benz nameplate. It came standard with anti-lock brakes, leather upholstery, alarm system and airbag. These features were not cheap, as the 560 SL had a retail price in excess of $48,000. This hefty figure did not deter many potential buyers, and the 560 SL proved to be one of the best-selling Mercedes Benz models of the late 80s with annual average sales exceeding 12,000 cars.

In March of this year, a 1988 560 SL sold for $92,500 at an auction at Amelia Island. Granted, it only had 3,000 original miles on the odometer and was in great condition, but this classic Benz with 68,000 miles on the odometer is just as straight and the interior is just as nice.

This car has always been driven in good weather and is completely rust-free. There are a few blemishes on the exterior, but no dents or scratches.

It comes with a new black convertible top, and the hard top is like new since it came off just after the original owner purchased it. All gauges and lights work perfectly, and the A/C blows ice-cold. The radial tires have approximately 7,000 miles.

This lovely classic has been used on a regular basis on nice days for the past two summers. It’s one of the best all-original 560 SLs available, and it would be difficult to find another in such great condition with these original miles.

In fact, you won’t find a more stunning car.
