2007 sl55 designo Pricing?

Looking at a 07 with 62k miles
Designo white and black interior
pretty much every option
Diamond white exterior
What are these cars worth, people tell me you will spend more than the car is worth if you have to replace motor? Great looking cars, just seems like the market is soft right now, they are asking 43k with no dealer service records.

If a brand new Mercedes engine from a crate is installed it would be cost more than almost any 7-8 year old Mercedes is worth especially if it is an AMG engine.
The value ranges from $31k to $41k. Most roadsters fetch less in states that get hard winters so the mid $30k range would be fair for your part of the country.

The car from Miami right? I was looking at this car on eBay 2007 SL55 AMG and the seller also posted it on Craigslist. The guy probably got it for less than $33K and trying to sell it for $43k. Not sure if it's a designo. carfax: CARFAX Vehicle History Report for this 2007 MERCEDES-BENZ SL55 AMG

I haven't heard for years about anybody having to replace MB engine just because.
But S class is not famous for cheap repairs and AMG even less.
Coming to designo, some books have it listed for added value. I used to have ML55 with the option and even I bought the car mostly because of it, it did not bring me better resale value.
All designo I have seen had 2-color seats.
