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 example have identified a way to capture the SL’s legacy through unique styling cues, soft lines, and classic color combinations. This 50th Anniversary Edition is one of only 550 examples produced and does an excellent job of maintaining the heritage of the famed Sport Licht with a striking color combination. The interior color alone is one of the most striking and attractive offerings from Mercedes. This is open-top motoring at its finest and we’re confident the next owner will be enjoy plenty of smiles per gallon in this limited edition example.
