This is a 2005 SL500 Roadster. This is stil the current (though slightly modified) version of the Mercedes SL, since 2003. This is a Roadster/Convertible with the fully automated steel roof that stores in the trunk, with the super reliable Mercedes 5.0 V8, mated with the steady and trusty 7 speed automatic. It is Pewter Silver metallic (very much like traditional Mercedes Smoke Silver) with Charcoal  leather. 

My wife has been driving this for the last couple of years, but she needs to move on to an MPV. I have kept it up with an open checkbook. By the time you reached 2005, these cars were quite trouble free with no major issues. It has only 73k miles, fantastic for a 14 year old car, and has years worth of fun and happiness still left in her. It makes a great appearance inside and out, and I have recently spent some time making sure all the cosmetics were nice. Call me, and I will wlak you around each panel. 

In addition to the great miles and appearance, the car has the AMG Sport package. This was a roughly $4500 option, and includes more agressive front nd rear bumper covers and side skirts, and the nicer 18" staggered wheels. You also get a nicer steering wheel and better loking exhaust outlets. This car also has navigation that still works well, nice Bose audio with a CD changer, heated AND cooled seats, and the Panoramic glass roof built into the steel roof section (another $2k or so option). If you're looking at others, take note: Cars without Sport Package afer FAR less deisrable and harder to sell, even if they are way cheaper. 

It has a good set of Continental tires, both batteries are up (it has 2), and I just did a small serivce, wiper blades, and an AC check and service (it had a new AC compressor) last year. Te top has no issues and all the hydrolocks are good, I just replaced the front center one, which we have just recently lfound out can be troublesome after 10 or 12 years. I also just replaced the two aluminum trim pieces on the hardtop which ALWAYS peel and look bad, and she has the Mercedes carpet mats as well as the MB all weather mats too. I have the wind deflector, two master keys and the books, as well as the Mercedes dealer service history, and all the receipts from my ownership. 

This is a tremendous amount of car for the money, It was right at $100k new, and most people have no idea that you can own this for this kind of money. This is not the kind of car you want to buy from some car hack, but from someone who can show you how to enjoy and keep one. Folks at the gas station will think she is a year or two old, and will give you a big thumbs up in the fall weather with the top down. This is a great value in a pre-opwned Mercedes, and you are getting it from a guy who knows the difference.

Meet Allen

For over 30 years, Encore Motors has been providing individuals with unique, rare cars that have been hand-picked by Allen and his late father, RC Akin. They were constantly queried about what cars to buy, how to keep them looking so good, and where friends could find cars like theirs. To use their banker’s term, Encore Motors was founded to “legitimize” their car hobby, and Encore still continues to promote the concepts of honesty, integrity and fun in the buying, driving, and maintaining of fine cars.
