About Mercedes-Benz 560SL

As a model of the Mercedes-Benz SL-Class, which is one of the most recognizable automotive icons of the last half-century and successor to the Mercedes-Benz SSK and Mercedes-Benz 540K, Mercedes-Benz 560SL was built by the Daimler-Benz from 1986 to 1989 as a sports car. Originally introduced as a model of the third-generation SL-Class, 560SL was only sold in the USA, Canada, Japan and Australia. But after being available for only four model years, the 560SL was discontinued when the whole W113 SL-Class was replaced by the R129 SL-Class in 1989.
Mercedes-Benz 560SL (R107) made its debut for the 1986 model year when the SL-Class was in its third generation. It was offered in only one body styles, 2-door roadster and came in only one trim level. Built based on the Mercedes-Benz R107 platform, 560SL was a member of the second longest single series ever produced by Mercedes-Benz, after the G-Class. As a 2-seat car with a detachable roof, 560SL also took the chassis components of the mid-size Mercedes-Benz W114 model. To meet the unique U.S. regulations and to comply with the U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration regulations, Mercedes-Benz 560SL was designed to compensate the reduced output of the 5.0 L die to the stricter emission laws. During its whole lifetime, 560SL had been powered by a 5.0 L V8 rated at 227 horsepower and 287 lb-ft of torque and power was sent through a 4-speed automatic transmission to the rear wheels.
