This 2007 Mercedes-Benz SL550 was originally sold at Mercedes-Benz of Chattanooga, TN in April 2006 and is one of 550 cars produced to commemorate the 50th Anniversary of the SL. It is finished in Pewter Silver Metallic (723) over Cognac Brown (227) leather and powered by a 5.5-liter V8 paired with a seven-speed automatic transmission. Additional equipment includes a power-retractable hardtop, bi-xenon headlamps, Keyless-Go, Active Body Control, heated and ventilated multi-contour front seats, a Bose sound system, and COMAND infotainment with navigation. The car was first registered in Tennessee and spent time in North Carolina, Alabama, Georgia, and Indiana prior to its arrival in Florida in 2021. This SL550 has 44k miles from new and is offered by the current owner with an original window sticker, service records since 2014, a factory VMI, two keys, manufacturer’s literature, a clean Carfax report, and a clean Florida title.
The car is finished in Pewter Silver Metallic (723U) and equipped with a power retractable hardtop, fog lamps, bi-xenon headlights with cornering illumination, twin exhaust tips, and a roll bar designed to automatically deploy in the event of a rollover. The seller reports only a few small rock chips on the front of the vehicle. Photos of exterior available in the gallery.
Split-spoke 18″ wheels are mounted with Michelin Pilot Sport A/S 3+ tires with 2019 date codes and 7/32 depth at all four corners. Braking is provided by four-wheel discs with cross-drilled front rotors and the car is equipped with Active Body Control. The seller reports wheels are straight with no alignment or balance issues and notes that there is minor curb rash on the front right wheel and a ding near the center of the left rear wheel.
The cabin features seating upholstered in Cognac Brown (227) leather with a matching lower dashboard and door panels along with a contrasting black upper dashboard and carpeting. Amenities include ash wood accents on the center console and steering wheel, heated and ventilated power-adjustable multi-contour seats, cruise control, COMAND infotainment with navigation, Keyless-Go, Bose audio, and automatic climate control.
The multifunction steering wheel frames a 160-mph speedometer, a tachometer, and gauges for fuel level and coolant temperature. The digital odometer indicates 44k miles.
The 5.5L M273 V8 was rated at 382 horsepower with 391 lb-ft of torque when new. Power is sent to the rear wheels through a seven-speed automatic transmission. The seller reports recent service history which includes an oil/filter change, front and rear brake pads and rotors, battery, and a new starter.

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. This is open-top motoring at its finest and we’re confident the next owner will be enjoying plenty of smiles per gallon in this limited-edition example.
