The return of the 560SL has been one of the most popular classic cars to gain traction within the last year. The simplicity of the Roadster brings an even more surprising price point for any starter or experienced auto collector. Depending on the region on the country that you live, this car can go as far as becoming a daily driver. Mercedes is known for it's reliable mechanics, and being that it only has under 74,000 original miles it has only average just over 2 thousand miles per year.
The exterior on the 560SL is what draws most car collectors to it. What is lacks in size, it makes up for in style. All 560's came with an easy to use soft top, but also has a neat opportunity to add a hard top for harsher conditions and a different look. The Cherry Red paint gleams in the sunlight attracting attention just as much as the large iconic Mercedes emblem that the grille showcases. A look at the interior shows creature comforts such as power windows, air conditioning and a recently upgraded radio.
Only producing 227 horsepower, this car is made for a Sunday cruise with the top down. The 560SL comes with a 5.6L V8 motor that gives enough power to use on the highway, yet not over powered in any way. It's more impressive asset is the combination of the extremely smooth shifting automatic transmission and tight handling suspension. With this all added together, it leaves a much more reliable classic car when compared to the commonly collected convertibles of previous generations.
