After being launched in the mid 1980s, Mercedes-Benz‘s 560 model in its SL line became one of the decade’s most popular cars. The top-end model was faster than its predecessors, with a 0-60 speed of 6.5 seconds and a top speed of 130 mph. Nowadays — more than 30 years after the first model released — the car typical sells for around the $50,000 USD mark, however this 1988 version is set to reach almost double that amount.
The $70,000 USD to $90,000 USD estimate is down to the car’s pristine condition, with only 2950 miles recorded since it was purchased 30 years ago. The 560 SL’s “Blue Green Metallic” color scheme with “Cream Beige” leather interior is also still perfect, with the seats remaining covered since 1988. Similarly, the car’s black soft top has never been used. Take a look at the Mercedes-Benz 560 SL above, with the car set to go on sale with RM Sotheby’s on March 10.
