Description for Mercedes-Benz 300SL 1990

Pay attention to one of those few lucky times that you can fulfill a luxury and performance promise without breaking the bank. This 1990 Mercedes 300SL is a modern classic that will never leave you wanting.The Charcoal Gray Metallic gives this convertible a different level of presence. It's an understated level of luxury that has the appeal of a dark tuxedo at night and a great metallic sparkle in the sunlight. This is the original paint to the car, so it has been enjoyed, but the quality reminds you instantly of why these were $75K cars when new. And this level of quality remains throughout this droptop. The doors close with precision usually reserved for coupes, the gaps retain their precision uniformity, and the big tri-star leading the way is as bold and bright as ever. Plus, being treated with respect from day one means you are looking at a highly original example, right down to the 16-inch factory alloys.Inside, the black leather with gray carpeting is the perfect complementing interior color combo with the exterior. After all, this SL needs to look its best with the top down, because these were made to be open to the world. The bucket seats have been engineered to be all-day comfortable, and the dual memory settings means it always power adjusts back to your favorite position. But more than just comfort, there's another side to Mercedes amenities that are always a nice bonus. This premium marque is known for engineering plenty of safety into their cars, and this can be seen on everything from the dual airbags, to the anti-lock brakes, to the roll bar that automatically pops up when danger is detected. There are other great features such as power windows, power steering, power locks, cruise control, factory stereo, and automatic climate control to keep you feeling comfortable even when the top is down in the summertime. And speaking of top, you not only get a nice black folding power roof, but this one also comes with the color matching hard top that makes your roadster look like a sleek coupe.Power comes from a 3.0-liter DOHC inline-six. It's as silky as a turbine and torquey enough to make the droptop feel quick and light on its feet. It's also legendary for its durability, and thanks to proper maintenance throughout its life, it still fires up with the kind of vigor that makes far newer vehicles jealous. The engine bay is extremely clean and it runs with a soft purr from the exhaust that's befitting a vehicle of this stature. The four-speed automatic transmission is the perfect companion to flex its German muscles when it wants, and then settle back into overdrive luxury immediately. The fully independent suspension makes this the perfect grand touring machine for the backroads. Plus, the power steering and four-wheel disc brakes only heighten this experience.Complete with owner's manual, it's amazing that something so complete and prestigious is also so affordable.
