Mercedes-Benz 560 SL 1988


Specifications


Description

CAR DESCRIPTION

The legendary 560SL earned its unique niche in the motoring world by blending two rich automotive themes: the lure of a lithe and eager top down sporting machine and the reassurance of a strong, secure, supremely livable Mercedes Benz.

Related to the 300SL, the famous Gullwing racer, which in its day was the fastest production car ever, the 560SL goes a step further. It is a more mature and sophisticated automobile.

First introduced in 1971 the 107-series became one of Mercedes-Benz's most successful and enduring models with a production life of almost two decades and approximately 300000 examples sold. Although upgraded mechanically and given larger engines over the years the well-proportioned styling remained largely unchanged as right from the start it was and is timeless and elegant.

The 560 SL comes with a unique style that can't be found in new cars. It came out with the biggest engine available - a grunty V8, that delivered 0-60 miles in 7sec with a top speed of about 130mph.
