This low-mileage R230 roadster is offered with two-keys, factory literature, and a clean Carfax report showing no accidents or other damage and linear mileage updates over the car’s lifetime.
2004 marked the second model year of the R230 generation SL and this SL500 represents the classic SL experience with its red paint, garage queen low miles and a smooth naturally aspirated V8. With an original starting price of $88,500 before options in 2004, many R230's of this caliber were not used as daily transportation and more likely a second (or third, or fourth) car. This particular SL500 benefits from the classic Red over Beige combination and comes well-optioned with a stunningly low 3,830 miles creating a very desirable piece for any enthusiast. For every R230 that has been neglected and put on aftermarket wheels, there are ones like this, tucked away inside climate controlled garages in vacation communities from Palm Springs to Boca Raton. While AMG models like the SL55 and SL65 offer more sheer horsepower, a relaxed red boulevard cruiser is truly what the SL nameplate is all about.
