2003 Mercedes-Benz SL500
Convertible Car for sale by Black Dog Performance Cars in Lincolnshire, Illinois 60669
After an 18-year hiatus, BMW has revived the 8 Series name with the BMW Concept 8 Series. The automaker's new flagship model could help the manufacturer compete against Mercedes-Benz, which overtook BMW last year as the world's largest luxury automaker.
Given that the 21st century has seen a sort of return to the roots aspect for the Mustang, it was probably only a matter of time before the Boss 302 made a return. Over the last few years there's been steady and growing interest in the concept of a new-age Trans Am Special.
Classic Car Overview
For sale at Blackdog Performance Cars is a gorgeous 2003 Mercedes-Benz SL500 with a panoramic vario-roof. The vario-roof is a highly sought-after option on the retractable hardtop, it features tinted polycarbonate that allows the passengers to see the world above during their driving experience. This Bright Red SL500 features all the goodies you can ask for in 2003, including heated seats, GPS navigation, and a 6-disc CD changer. Powering this 2003 SL500 is a 5.0L, 302 horsepower, V8 engine that is mated to a 5-speed automatic transmission. Notable upgrades include 18-inch, aluminum/alloy AMG wheels, drilled and slotted front rotors, and an AMG style front grille. With just under 41,000 miles, this 2003 SL500 is barely broke in and ready to roll.
The all new redesigned 5th generation SL, or R230, had a production run from 2001 to 2011. The retractable hardtop was the biggest news for the R230. It had been featured on its little brother, the SLK, since 1997, and many were excited for its arrival on the SL. Gone were the days of needing help removing the auxiliary hardtop, or only using the soft top in order not to fuss with the hardtop. The problem was the car looked so good with the hardtop on. Now you finally get the best of both worlds, a car that looks great with the hardtop up, or with only the push of a button, you get to enjoy the sun in your face and wind in your hair.
