Our Mercedes Benz 500SL AMG 6.0L comes with every option imaginable and specialty tuning performed by AMG. This vehicle runs great and has very low, well cared for 103,000 kilometers.
This is a very rare car, exclusive to Mercedes/AMG. The 500SL AMG 6.0L car was built in very low numbers and is a true bargain for the collector or enthusiast. One of only 40 cars built by AMG this year.
The motor is the M119 (V8 DOHC) that has been factory bored out to an amazing 6.0L (6000cc) and has an astonishing 381ps/5500rpm. The motor is extremely responsive and is much smoother than the stock SL500, there is a world of difference.
The interior is in fair shape. Very serviceable. The car has some light scratches on the front bumper and rubbing on the drivers fender. It could certainly use a paint job, but does not "need" one. It still turns heads and I get a lot of thumbs up while driving.
Here is the VIN: WDB1290661F005247
The car is well maintained and very drivable. I drive it regularly every weekend. I am offering on this site in hope that someone out there would want to restore the car to it's original condition and just enjoy driving it. This is in lieu of trying to trade the car in and being quite offended at what a dealership would offer me for the car.
Asking $10,000 CAD. I live in Vancouver, BC.
Give me a call if you'd like to ask any questions or have any specific requests for pictures. For some reason I can't attach any pictures. I had posted ones on this site from 2007, when I bought the car and it was imported from Japan. I just searched and couldn't find them by my handle: retiringinmind. The car looks essentially the same now, with only 10,000 km added in 5 years.
