The Mercedes-Benz SL sits at the top of the Stuttgart automaker’s sports car and grand tourer offerings, being a stalwart of the range since its origins in 1954, with the gorgeous 300SL Gullwing. Over the years, the SL has remained a showcase of what Mercedes-Benz can do in terms of cutting-edge technology, wrapped in a stylish two-seat body. The R231 generation ran between 2012 and 2020 before the latest R232 entered this year. That makes this 2013 Mercedes-Benz SL550 a fantastic low-mileage example of the R231 generation, with just 36,700 miles on the clock and is said to be a high-optioned car as well.
A party piece of the R231 generation SL is its electrically folding metal roof, also known as the retractable hardtop. This allows you to enjoy the best of both worlds, namely the freedom of open-topped cruising, coupled with the strength and security of a metal roof over your heads when required. That’s what this 2013 Mercedes-Benz SL550 packs, and it’s a panoramic glass roof too. The car wears a Tenorite Gray Metallic paint job and rolls on a set of 20-inch Vossen wheels with new Michelin tires. Bi-Xenon headlamps with active curve lighting ensures that night driving is much safer, and the AMG Styling Package with front spoiler and side skirts lends this SL some sportiness, aided by the Sport Package that’s been specced as well. The outside rear view mirrors are electrically folding as well, but that’s to be expected on a car at this level of luxury, comfort, and price. The interior features a red color theme with leather, nappa and semi-aniline, as well as Ash Tree wood trim. The Dynamic Seats have been specced, together with a premium sound system, ambience illumination, rear view camera, active park assist, and climate control, making the cabin a very pleasant place to be.
This 2013 Mercedes-Benz SL550 is powered by the automaker’s M278 BiTurbo V8 that displaces 4.7L and puts out 429hp and 516lb-ft to the rear wheels via a Mercedes-Benz 7G-TRONIC seven-speed automatic transmission. It’s reported that this car has received a resonator upgrade, as well as a chip upgrade, meaning that the power output is likely higher than stock.
