West Coast Classics are proud to present an absolutely exceptional example of this one owner 2013 Mercedes-Benz SL550 rare 'Designo Edition' roadster in the highly desirable and striking color combination of original factory 'Black' color paint with a 'Light Brown' 'Designo' leather interior, with the retractable power steel roof and with 19" multi-spoke alloy wheels and with only 1,574 (yes one thousand five hundred and seventy four) original miles!


The 2013 Mercedes-Benz SL550 Roadster features classic sports-car proportions. Its long nose with massive hood vents is flanked by large HID headlamps with LED accents and flows over the optional 19-inch five-spoke wheels. The passenger compartment seats two under its low-slung, abbreviated roof line. The convertible top is a power-retractable hard top that lowers in about 6 seconds.


The car boasts an observed 159-mph top speed (Mercedes claims an electronically limited 155). With a 429-hp, 4.7-liter twin-turbo V-8 lurking beneath its hood, the 4138-pound SL550 posts some impressive acceleration numbers; 4.1 seconds from 0 to 60 and the quarter in 12.5 seconds.


The car has a weight saving aluminum unibody and luxurious interior trappings and this particular example boasts dealer upgrades including the $4,900 Premium package (rearview camera, power trunk closer, active parking assist, ventilated seats, and keyless entry and start); the $4,500 Designo Leather package; illuminated door sills ($350); analog clock on dash top (a very attractive worthy accessory at this deal of an affordable price - $250!); wood/leather steering wheel ($590); special order multispoke 19 wheels ($750); this car wore a sticker reading a princely $117,745.00 in 2013!


The car may be German, but speaks the international language of wealth and privilege most fluently :)


Overall, the 6th generation SL550 was a techno masterpiece masquerading as a slick German roadster and a terrific offering from Mercedes to the fortunate few. Mercedes-Benz had launched a totally new sixth generation SL roadster in 2013 featuring a unitized aluminum body - the first mass produced body shell from Mercedes-Benz. In comparison to the previous generation SL the aluminum body weighed some 275 pounds less whilst providing even more crash safety enhancements and improved ride control.


The SL is Mercedes-Benz most storied and revered model, with more performance than any of the others, since 1954, with the launch of the legendary 300SL! This 2013 latest 6th generation model, the SL maintains this legacy of playing double duty as both a GT cruiser and sports car, whilst ensuring the most luxurious of appointments for its discerning owners.


The SL550 replaced the previous 5th generation model and it was a technological tour-de-force, improved in virtually every way from the previous generation's model. The all new aluminum unibody design was dramatic and still boasted a retractable steel roof which instantly converted the car from being a sleek sports coupe into an open-air fun roadster.

Purchased by it's original and only owner at 'Mercedes-Benz of Beverly Hills', CA, and always primarily serviced there and otherwise at 'Mercedes-Benz of Miami', FL, when stored at the owners FL home. Obviously always garaged since new with no accidents and with the original and beautiful 'Black' color factory color paint still in absolutely exceptional condition. The original 'Designo Light Brown' leather seats are also in absolutely beautiful condition with no signs of any wear as is the original dashboard and wood veneer interior - obviously always garaged from the elements! The car's service records show that at no time was any expense spared on this particular car's preventive maintenance.


This a very striking and desirable rare 'Designo edition' SL550 which has a clean CARFAX report to confirm both its mileage and history and looks and drives exactly like such a well maintained and serviced ultra low original mileage Mercedes should and must be seen and driven to be truly appreciated! This is obviously a collector quality or museum worthy example.


You will look long and hard to find a lower mileage or as well maintained and beautiful and always garaged example in this very striking color combination available anywhere else - it is virtually as new with a new car smell to boot!
