A walk-around video has been provided by the seller below.
A few years ago, the market was baffled by a relatively low demand for the SLS AMG. Articles talking about their affordability hailed it as the time to strike and the perfect position for a future-collectible AMG... boy were they right. The SLS AMG as a complete model has since seen a significant increase in values across the board, but these coupes can still command $100k+ more than their topless brethren. As the first fully-AMG engineered car of the modern era, the SLS has only gained value, respect and somehow become even more strikingly beautiful. Combine the experience with low production numbers, a dry sump V8, and a hint of 1950’s styling cues of the infamous 300SL and a winner was born. Finding a clean example in something other than black or white makes this an even more desirable find. Rest assured this one will not stay price-stagnant through the years... it’s an excellent investment that will pay dividends in both dollars and donuts.
