vehicle description

 


Seven Hills Motorcars is extremely proud to offer this absolutely stunning 2003 Mercedes SL500 in nearly flawless condition with just over 14,900 original miles. We acquired this Mercedes from the original owner who purchased the car brand new in 2002 at of price of nearly $90,000. This is an excellent opportunity to own an almost brand new SL at an unbeatable value. The original owner was a woman who is close with our dealership so we have known this car since new; we actually purchased this SL and a 2005 E500 with 21,780 miles from her. So she owns a number of Mercedes, all purchased brand new, all with very low miles, and all impeccably maintained by the dealer. This SL500 has never been used a daily driver or taken out during the winter months. The car has never had any kind of accident history or paint work. It is a great benefit to purchase a vehicle with an unbroken ownership history and to know the entire past of a car, especially something as high end and specialized as this SL. Any and all service to the car has been preformed exclusively by the dealer and the service records are included. Also included with the car are all the original manuals, books, window sticker, tools, both sets of keys, and even the full set of navigation DVD's. Please peruse all of the photos and video below to get a true sense of exceptionally nice and clean this SL500 really is.

Exterior

The Magma Red exterior is in magnificent condition. This Mercedes has had no paint work or accident history of any kind. As one can see in the photos the paint has dazzling gloss, deep shine, and smooth glass-like finish. The body is straight with no notable dents, bumps, or dings. This Mercedes basically looks in person just as it does in the photos. It has always been kept clean and professionally detailed and it shows in the great condition of the paint now. These SL's are notorious for accumulating rock chips on the low front end. The front end of this car is very clean with almost no chips as one can see in the photos. We have also included specific photos of other areas of the car prone to damage and rock chips such as directly behind the tires. There are no major spots or blemishes that have been excluded from the photos. The only imperfection on the car that we are aware of is a small piece of trim that covers some of the convertible top mechanism when the top is down, which has popped off. The piece is still with the car and should not be that difficult to have reattached.  The convertible hardtop operates flawlessly and effortlessly as one can view in the video. The wheels are in excellent condition with a nice finish and no curb rash with the exception of a small spot on the left rear.

This SL500 looks just as good in person as it does in the photos.
 

Interior

 

The Stone Two-Tone Leather interior of this Mercedes looks spectacular. The seats are in excellent shape with no cracks, splits, or excessive wear. They are not overly worn in the typical area on the side bolster where the driver gets in and out; there is also a specific photo of that area below. The carpet looks great with no stains, tears, or holes. The door panels are in excellent shape with no scuffs; the arm pads on the door panels are not cracked or split. Both power seats work in all directions as one can see in the video. All of the gorgeous wood trim looks superb with no peeling or delamination; the wood trim was and option (SL1 Wood Package). The only blemish anywhere inside the car that we could find is a very tiny chip right above the gauge cluster, which was almost too small to shop up in photos. This car has NEVER been smoked in and has no aroma of cigarettes whatsoever. Also, one can see in the photos that the lighter has never been used and the ashtray is perfectly clean.

 

The interior looks just as good in person as it does in the photos.


Mechanical

This SL500 is in excellent mechanical condition and is ready to be enjoyed. As one can observe in the video there are no warning lights and literally every function on every component we tried operated properly. The windows move down slightly when a door is opened as they should. All of the suspension and ABC Sport settings work correctly and as well as the height positions; one can see a segment in the video of the suspension raising and lowering. The power hardtop operates smoothly and with no binding as one can also observe in the video. All of the lights, gauges, and many electrical accessories all work, and the a/c blows cold. There are no immediate issues with the drivability of this Mercedes. The car starts right away every time, runs well, and idles well. There is no smoke when starting or driving the car. The car is smooth on the road and at highway speeds. The transmission shifts well throughout the power band. There really isn't too much to say in this section of the description; this SL500 runs, drives, and works basically like a new car with no faults or issues. The 5.0 liter V8 engine is rather powerful and this car is actually quite fast. Not enough can be said as to how much of a pleasure it is to drive this Mercedes, especially with top down on a beautiful sunny day.

This Mercedes runs, drives, and functions just as well as it looks.


Overall
Condition

This SL500 is nearly perfect both cosmetically and mechanically and virtually like a new Mercedes. Everyone who sees this car loves the striking Magma Red over Stone color combination and it gets a good bit of attention going down the road. Most SL's are silver or black and this bright red is much more rare and desirable. The pictures reflect how the car really looks in person. Convertible Mercedes are highly collectible, make excellent cars to drive, and are wise investments. There was a recent article in the magazine Sports Car Market about the rising collectability of the SL model. We, as always, would encourage you to take the time to view the car in person if possible or have the car inspected. We have nothing to hide, that is why we include so many photos. If there is anything unclear or if you have any questions please email or call.

 

Thank you for looking and please email or call with any questions.
