According to the car’s factory data card, this 560 SL was completed in March 1989. Shortly after, the car was sold new via Mercedes-Benz authorized dealer Star Weber Motors in Toronto, Ontario, on 21 April 1989. Its original owner, Mr. Fedele, maintained the car for the ensuing 31 years, meticulously caring for his 560 SL and always servicing it accordingly.
Presented in its original Signal Red exterior paint, black soft top, and black leather interior, the roadster is accompanied by its original matching hardtop. The paint quality remains near flawless along with the superb chrome brightwork and the excellent original exterior trim. The undercarriage, suspension, and engine bay show in like-new condition. Finally, the interior leather is supple, and the wood trim presents as new. In November 2019 the 560 SL underwent a full service, which included replacement of all fluids and filters. Additionally, a brake-fluid flush and spark-plug replacement were completed, all of which is supported by service receipts available on file.
Offered with a full host of original documentation, this 560 SL has been enjoyed and preserved in its original condition. The tool roll, featuring a full set of tools, has never had its plastic removed, nor has the spare ever been used. Further items accompanying the car include the original purchase agreement, buyout agreement, service history, original service books with stamps, vehicle manuals, original blue build sheet, original metal data plate, spare master and valet key, clear pouch, roof tool, jack, spare, and first aid kit.
Offered with less than 18,100 original kilometers (11,246 miles), this 560 SL has been maintained under single-family ownership since new. One would be hard-pressed to find a more pristine final-year 560 SL roadster.To view this car and others currently consigned to this auction, please visit the RM website at rmsothebys.com/en/auctions/am20.
