1989 Mercedes-Benz 560 SL

[ translate ]

Chassis No.

Chassis No.: WDBBA48D1KA093577
Documents: Italian Libretto

The Sport Leicht portfolio by Mercedes-Benz can trace its roots directly to the zenith of sportscars, the 300 SL. The Gullwing entered production in 1954 and, with the Roadster that followed, the 300 SL platform set the mould for the following generations of SL cars. The Paul Bracq-designed “Pagoda” roofline signified the second-generation W113 platform, while the SL was reinvented again in 1971. The C107 was introduced in coupé form while the R107 was a two-seat convertible featuring a removable hardtop.

Mercedes-Benz devised multiple models under the C107 and R107 umbrella, all wearing similar body styles with names set by engine displacement. The European market welcomed the 2.8-litre 280 SL and SLC as the entry level models, while options for the rest of the world were offered on a greater scale. The 560 SL topped the range, powered by a 5.6-litre V-8 engine, and built between 1986 to 1989 model years for the Australian, Japanese and US markets.

The 560 SL offered here was delivered new to Florida in October 1989, where it stayed for two years until it was acquired by its next owner in Baldwin, Long Island, New York. The car left the Sindelfingen factory finished in Black over a Palomino Leather interior, the colour configuration it retains today, and was specified with automatic climate control with Thermo King air conditioning, a Becker cassette player, and a steering wheel-fitted airbag. Exported from the United States in 2009, the car is believed to have since received a replacement odometer showing in km/h.
