The perfect way to describe Mercedes-Benz and its grip on the automotive industry is sheer dominance on many fronts. Their convertible and roadster offerings, the R107 SL, played a big part in the market for a convertible for 18 years and was even Mercedes-Benz's 2nd longest ever running series made by the manufacturer. With prices soaring and good examples being harder to find, this 1986 Mercedes-Benz 560 sure is your ticket into the golden years of Mercedes-Benz roadsters. With a reported 66,000 miles on the clock, your Sunday cruises are now made more exciting.
Over its 18 years of production, the design of the R107 SL and other roadsters barely changed. Not that anyone wanted it to change back in the day as the car captured that Mercedes-Benz charm and made for one good looking cruiser. This 1986 Mercedes-Benz 560 sports a beige exterior. The hardtop is in the same color, with a soft brown top reportedly included in the sale. The body is in great shape, with the US-spec bumpers and other exterior trim looking brand new. The vehicle rides on the original Mercedes-Benz chrome wheels. Matching the exterior of this 1986 Mercedes-Benz 560 is a brown interior that just screams 80s. While the interior of the car is primarily original, the aftermarket Sony sound system neatly nestled in the car's dashboard ensures you have some great tunes ready at all times. Included in the sale is the owner's manual.
The most potent version of the SL was the European spec 500. But none of them ever made their way to the US. However, what did make their way with demand surging is the even bigger 560SL. This 1986 Mercedes-Benz 560 is powered by the behemoth sized 5.6L V8 engine which was capable of pushing out 237hp when new. Power is sent to the car's rear wheels through a four speed automatic transmission. A Coil-spring independent front suspension and an independent swing axle with coil springs at the rear iron out road imperfections and provide a smooth ride. With this car's four-wheel power hydraulic disc brakes, stopping power is adequate too.
