Launched in 1971, the Mercedes-Benz R107-series SL models built upon the success of the 230/250/280 SL lines and took pride of place as the definitive sporting luxury convertible of the 1970s and 1980s. Fittingly, this beautifully preserved 1989 560 SL marks the ultimate expression of the R107 series from the final model year.

Sold new in California, this 560 SL retains its original paint finish, handsomely complemented by a virtually impeccable leather interior. It is highly equipped with amenities including air-conditioning, power steering and windows, cruise control, premium audio with cassette, dual front air bags, alloy road wheels, fog lights, and a rear-window defroster. This SL is complete with both hard and soft tops, and the vehicle is tidy, correct, and impressive in its overall presentation.

Accompanied by service records from new, this 560 SL also benefits from a recent major service performed in July 2015. Original factory accessories accompany the sale, including original operation and user manuals, booklets, a reserve master key, Becker cassette, top wrenches, the jack and unused spare, the first aid kit, the original interior hanging instruction tags, and more. As such, this wonderful 560 SL is simply exceptional and stands ready to provide an incomparable open-air driving experience for an enthusiast who appreciates a well-preserved modern classic.
