"The 560 SL convertible was the latest in Mercedes-Benz's long and much loved line of luxury sports cars. Launched in 1983 it could trace its lineage back to the 230 SL of 1963. The 560 SL was powered by a 5.5 litre, overhead camshaft V8 engine producing 227bhp, an output good enough for a top speed of 220kmh with 100kmh reachable in around eight seconds. There were improvements to the running gear in the form of anti-dive, anti-squat rear suspension, a limited slip differential and revised steering geometry. The 560 SL has a high level of standard equipment, included leather upholstery, anti-lock braking, an anti-theft alarm system, stereo radio/cassette, leather trimmed steering wheel, gear lever and an improved climate control system.
This attractive Mercedes-Benz presents well in the colour combination of blue with a blue interior. Recently imported from the USA, this handsome Mercedes is now UK registered. This impressive cruiser comes with both a soft top and factory hardtop. Offered to auction with the original owner's manual, various bills and receipts, a V5C registration document and an MoT test certificate valid until 26th March 2020. This 560 SL is a high quality Mercedes-Benz full of elegance and style ideally suited to open top touring."
