The car is finished in Glacier White (143) and features the desirable SL1 AMG Sport package which includes an AMG front spoiler, side skirts, and a rear apron along with factory 18” chrome AMG wheels. This example also features an electric black soft top, xenon headlights, fog lights, and a highly desirable and valuable panoramic hardtop. The color matched factory panoramic roof is in excellent condition and wears tint on the glass as seen in the photos. The front bumper has a crack on the lower passenger side which is viewable in the gallery and the selling dealer reports minor paint chips which have also been documented in the gallery below. The Carfax shows a minor damage report from June 2021 to the front driver's corner which is stated to be purely cosmetic.
Factory staggered 18” AMG chrome wheels are wrapped in new Michelin Pilot Sport A/S 3+ tires showing 2020 date codes. The tires measure 245/40 up front and 275/35 in the rear. The wheels appear free of any significant rash, curbing or peeling.
The cabin features seats trimmed in Grey (248) leather with a matching dashboard, gray carpets, and burl wood veneer accents on the center console and door panels. Amenities include power-adjustable heated front seats with position memory, automatic climate control, a wind deflector, a factory cassette stereo, and an auto-dimming mirror. The LCD screen on the factory head unit shows some liquid crystal bleeding but is reportedly fully functional. The seller reports that the A/C does not blow through the center vents but does operate fully through the side vents.
A leather-wrapped steering wheel frames a 160-mph speedometer, 7k-rpm tachometer, and clock along with gauges for fuel level, instant economy, coolant temperature, and oil pressure. The digital odometer indicates just over 117k miles, approximately 500 of which were added by the selling dealer.
The 5.0-liter M113 V8 was factory-rated at 315 horsepower and 347 lb-ft of torque. Power is sent to the rear wheels through a five-speed automatic transmission. Recent service includes a new crank position sensor, spark plugs, cabin air filter, brake system flush, new valve cover gaskets, transmission output shaft seal, transmission oil pan gasket & filter, windshield washer tank, soft top service & lubrication, 90k-mile major service, mass air flow sensor, new a/c lines and seals, a/c hose assembly, blinker switch, and an airbag switch.
