PPW Motorcars is pleased to offer this beautiful 1989 Mercedes-Benz 560SL, which was exquisitely ordered in the extremely rare Dark Blue (non-metallic) with a beautiful and brand new Dark Blue soft top over a powdery, supple, and Brand New Palomino Full Leather Interior! It is our opinion that this is the most beautifully ordered example we have ever come across! The stunning and timeless colors are both period correct and still fashionable today! Whether you are in New York City, The Hampton’s, or Monaco, this example will stop traffic and turn heads more than a new SL65.

What makes this vehicle truly worth owning is the level of detail and hand assembled craftsmanship that is present in no automobile currently produced. This magnificent motorcar was produced in an era when owning a Mercedes-Benz meant something significant. There was no such thing as a $299 a month lease on a new C-Class; ownership was reserved for just a select few. With the factory window sticker showing an MSRP of $61,630 before options ($133,414 when adjusted for inflation) this vehicle was one of the most expensive and best overall vehicles available during its time. It combined the road holding ability of a sports car with the opulent appointments of the finest luxury cars. This was a vehicle for the most discerning individual to whom sacrificing any virtue of the vehicle for the sake of another was unacceptable.

This particular example has been ordered with every option available; fitted with ABS Brakes, Ice Cold Air Conditioning, Cruise Control, Power Windows, Hardtop, Full Leather Interior, Power Steering, and Factory Alarm. We are proud to offer what we believe to be one of the finest examples of the coveted 107 Body Mercedes available today; this is an opportunity of a lifetime to own one of the best!
Making this example even more collectible is the incredible condition and restoration work that has been performed, making it the single best value in the 560SL market. Often you will see these vehicles in average condition. The collectible examples are usually somewhat original and if they are very low mile, can be all original. That has become a desirable trait in the collector car market and for good reason, because restoration of vehicles is incredibly expensive and especially on lower end cars, is not economical to do well, so ‘average original’ on a 70-90,000 mile 560sl is as good as you can reasonably do. This example however, was owned by an engineer for Chrysler with multiple patents. Cost was not an object to him, nor was there any shortage of skill. He, the second owner, enjoyed working on his cars and would do most of the work himself. This allowed him to do things with this vehicle that would otherwise be completely uneconomical to the average person and again, cost was not a concern. The vehicle has received much tinkering and fresh components over the years to make it drive as well as it looks. Cosmetically is where this vehicle most shines, with a gorgeous trim off, glass out repaint in the original Dark Blue, which is a non-metallic that is one of the most dynamic colors we have ever seen. It shows as near black in the evening but in the day lightens up and shows various tones of blue with just a hint of periwinkle to round it out. Google photos of the color on a 560SL to see all the various ways it can appear depending on lighting. Of all the 560SLs we have had, this is bar none the most handsome. If I were building a collection for myself, this is the car that would be in it. Further, it received new seat leather, full carpet kit, soft top, refinished wheels, new tires, and still retains all the original bits and pieces, which are in great condition like the dash pad and exterior trim. This vehicle started out as an above average 560SL and found its way into the skilled and capable hands of an engineer with the means to take it to the next level. Offered for the true collector, investor, or enthusiast who understands and appreciates the investment potential of this extremely rare, gorgeous, top of the line, and exceptional Mercedes-Benz 560SL! Bid with confidence-you will not be disappointed in this truly magnificent motorcar!
