1988 560SL Mercedes coupe 5.6 litre engine

The 560 SL was really designed by Mercedes for the US market. However, a few Right hand examples were produced that ended up in Japan and Australia. None went to Europe. In Australia we see the 500 SL that in essence is the same car with a smaller less powerful engine. This makes the 560SL quite desirable to collectors, probably worth double what a 500SL brings. This particular car has covered 130000 klms and was delivered new in Sydney in 1988.
