This 2007 Mercedes-Benz SL550 shows one owner from new with registration reported in California and 90k miles on the odometer. Finished in Storm Red Metallic (541) over Stone Beige Nappa Leather (251), power is provided by a 5.5-liter V8 mated to a seven-speed automatic transmission driving the rear wheels. Factory equipment includes a power-folding hardtop, Bi-Xenon headlamps, Keyless-Go, heated and ventilated multicontour seats, dual-zone automatic climate control, a 6-disc CD changer and a Bose audio system. Recent maintenance included new front lower control arms and ball joints along with a new radiator and upper radiator hose. The original window sticker is included showing an MSRP of over $100k. This 2007 SL550 is now offered by the seller on behalf of the original owner with the original window sticker, manufacturer's literature, a Carfax report, and a clean California title.
The body is finished in Storm Red Metallic (541) and features a power-folding hardtop which folds into the trunk. Exterior features include automatic Bi-Xenon headlamps, corner-illuminating front fog lamps, a mesh wind deflector, power door mirrors and Keyless-Go. The Carfax lists damage in 2013 and 2016 to the front and rear of the car with the seller noting only minor paint chips and scratches currently visible in the paint.
The 18” 10-spoke alloy wheels are fitted with a set of Michelin Pilot Sport All Season tires which measure 255/40 front and 285/35 rear with date codes reading 2019 and 2023 respectively. Signs of curb rash are present on the wheels. The Active Body Control suspension provides driver-selectable ride height and stiffness with records showing a front accumulator being replaced in 2021.
The cabin is trimmed in Stone Beige Nappa Leather (541) with matching beige floor mats and carpets while Chestnut wood trim lines the center console, steering wheel and door panels. Both seats are heated and ventilated with multicontour adjustment and position memory. Additional interior amenities include a dash-mounted digital clock, a COMAND infotainment system with DVD navigation, a 6-disc CD changer, dual-zone automatic climate control, push-button start and an 8-speaker Bose audio system.
The wood leather steering wheel fronts analog instrumentation consisting of a 160-mph speedometer, a 7k-rpm tachometer and gauges for fuel level and coolant temperature. The digital instrumentation shows the current odometer at 90k miles, all of which have been added by the original owner.
This R230 is powered by a 32-valve 5.5-liter naturally-aspirated V8 which is rated for 382 horsepower and 391 lb-ft of torque. Power is sent to the rear wheels through a seven-speed automatic transmission. Maintenance was performed by a Mercedes-Benz dealer through 2016 with later service performed by the selling dealer. The included records show the replacement of the transmission valve body, a new starter, new front lower control arms, a new radiator, a recent oil change and more. Recent service records are viewable in the gallery.
The Carfax report shows one owner from new with registration reported in California along with linear mileage updates. This 2007 SL550 is now offered by the selling dealer on behalf of the original owner with the original window sticker and a clean California title in the original owner’s name.
It doesn’t get much more iconic than a Mercedes-Benz SL with the top down. Through the ages we’ve watched the 300SL, the Pagoda, the R107, and R129, all steal the show in their own rights from silver screen stardom to pop culture flash. We like to think SL550’s like this Storm Red example have identified a way to capture the SL’s legacy through unique styling cues, soft lines, and classic color combinations. Owned and cared for by its original owner, this SL550 shows an exceptional condition and comes with nearly seven years of detailed maintenance addressing any and all issues throughout its life. Given its California pedigree and unique color combination, this R230 is sure to provide many more years of joyous top-down driving.
