and on the showroom floor is a brand new 500SL Roadster in the
very best color combination—Imperial Red with Parchment Leather, a red
hardtop and the black Mercedes soft top…that is the car you have a chance to
have parked in your garage….
If your into cars you know that used, low mileage Mercedes Benz 560SL’s that were
made in the 1980’s are bringing $25,000 to $50,000 at collector car auctions. The
mileage and condition is what determines the price.
In 2018, just a few months away, this Mercedes will be 20 years old…and the price
will dramatically escalate in value.
You have the rare opportunity to own a “Showroom New Condition” 500SL for
about 1/3rd of what it cost new in 1998.

in person and it drives just like it looks….PERFECT.

owner always put large towels on both seats and the floor to protect the seats
The soft top has never seen the sun or rain….it’s still brand new!
Everything works….no warning lights of any type.
