This 2005 Mercedes-Benz SL600 is finished in Brilliant Silver Metallic with an optional panoramic glass roof and has 87,131 miles. The car has spent its life in Southern California, and was purchased by the seller’s father-in-law with one previous owner a year ago. He has added approximately 7k miles since, and the car is described as stock aside from an aftermarket front grille. Power comes from a twin-turbocharged 5.5L V12 paired to a 5-speed automatic transmission. This R230 SL600 is now being offered by the seller on behalf of his father-in-law with factory books, a clean Carfax, and a clean California title.

Per the seller, the front grille was replaced with an aftermarket version purely for cosmetic preference. The car is not known to have had paint or bodywork, and the included Carfax does not indicate any prior accidents or damage. Cosmetic blemishes include some scuffs on the rear bumper from loading luggage, and a cracked third brake light housing, which will reportedly be replaced for the next owner. A front license plate bracket is also included.

The twin-turbocharged M275 5.5L V12 was factory rated at 493 horsepower and 590 lb-ft of torque, and sends power to the rear wheels via a 5-speed AMG Speedshift automatic. According to the seller, a general inspection and brake fluid flush were completed in September 2018, and the car passed a California emissions test during the same month.
