FS: 2003 Mercedes SL500R AMG Designo Edition $15900

2003 Mercedes SL500R AMG Designo Edition $15900.

Located in the SF Bay Area peninsula.

This is not the cheapest SL500, but it is the best. If you just want the cheapest one and are prepared to deal with the many 4-5 digit repair bills that will come with it, please look at other cars. I am selling a no-worries, fully functional car in close to perfect condition.

This is a clean title, dealer maintained (on schedule) since new, fully loaded roadster in limited Designo Launch Edition ($9,300 factory option). Engine is clean and everything is working as it should, no weird noises, transmission shifting is very smooth, engine pulls strongly, doors close with a solid clunk, no rattles or stories. Drives like a dream, has plenty of low end torque and power from the V8, handles very well, and makes you feel like you're sitting in a $100,000 car (because it is). The car is completely stock and still has the original new car smell, despite the 112k miles.

It has all the accessories it should have, including spare tire, compressor, complete tool kit, complete owners manuals with case, jack and both keys.

Either spend the money up front to enjoy a properly maintained and 100% healthy car, or spend it over the next year towing a cheap one to the shop every month. Interior is 10/10 and exterior is 9.5/10.
Never been in an accident, never been painted or had body repairs, other than a few very minor rock chip touch ups.

All maintenance has been carried out by Mercedes dealers, except the recent ABC suspension overhaul, which was carried out with a Porsche race technician friend of mine.

Fully loaded with these options and more:
Designo Launch Edition:
1 of 2300 Units
Designo Metallic Silver Exterior
