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. While we expect most cars to have been maintenanced regularly throughout, this particular SL550 has done so at Blue Ridge MB just outside of Atlanta, GA. Known for their expertise and quality of work, we have the upmost confidence in the reliability and service history of this R230. This is open-top motoring at its finest and we’re confident with how few miles this car’s seen in prior years, the next owner will be enjoy plenty of smiles per gallon.
