Car description

Up for Sale is a 1986 Mercedes-benz 560 sl for sale with 121. 00 miles. This car has a 4-spd automatic. 8 cyl 5549 cc v-8 227 hp. It has both the hard and soft tops. The owner is in his 80s and the car has been garaged with a cover over it. The soft top has not been out of the boot for four years. The present owner just bought a new car and is out of garage space. This is a fast and beautiful touring car. In 1986. Mercedes-benz shipped its most powerful SL of the decade to the US in the 560SL. The car was also the heavies of the 1971-89 R107 Sls that Mercedes produced. but the new 5. 5-liters V-8 227 hp did a fine job of mitigating that fact. Top speed was much improved (from 110 mph in the 350SL to 130mph). and the car was quicker from from a standstill to 60 mph by about 4 full seconds. The engine was much torquier. too. which greatly improved the cars dynamics. Likewise. the car received a new rear suspension and a limited-slip differential to better handle the added torque and power. Mercedes-Benz also added anti-lock brakes. leather upholstery. an alarm system and an air bag. all of which better suited the cars $48. 00 price tag. The 560 SL sold well with average annual sales exceeding 12. 00 units. which outpaced the 450SL and 380SL. Nonetheless. Mercedes retired the R107 chassis in 1990. introducing the firat all-new SL in 18 years. Today. many enthusiasts gravitate towards the 560SL as it retains some of the original lines of the pagoda Sls while carrying with it all of the R107s advances. It remains a popular choice for those enthusiasts who value verve and build quality for a low price.
