what makes this car special?

Introduced at the Geneva show in 1980, the 500sl was the flagship Mercedes Benz convertible of its time and the fastest car in their entire range. However, it was user friendly and temperament free and therefore was a huge success for Mercedes Benz. Improvements over the 450sl included:

 

  • An all alloy overhead camshaft 5l V8 producing 235 BHP
  • More powerful with better fuel consumption
  • Shorter wheelbase
  • Front and rear spoilers added
  • Improvements to the independent suspension
  • Improved brakes

 

This example was registered in South Africa in 1982 and spent the bulk of its life in the Johannesburg area. It is a solid example but during our technical inspection a few items were identified that require attention. The asking price has been adjusted accordingly and a copy of he technical report is available for inspection
