An iconic combination of Signal Red and Palomino Leather, coupled with the rear spoiler delete and exceptionally low mileage make this 560SL a mouth watering proposition.
The leather interior in this car is named ‘Palomino’. This nomenclature is derived from horse breeding, meaning a colour of a ‘diluted’ cream over a chestnut base. When combined with Signal Red, the result is a style synonymous with high specification export market cars.
The 560SL was never available in European markets, and in export markets like the USA where fuel is cheap, often these cars covered astronomical miles. This example has covered just 59,000 well cared for miles.
Coming from Nevada originally, the large American ‘impact’ bumpers and quad round headlights have been given the complete European specification conversion. Converting an American car to Euro spec is an expensive and time consuming job that must be done correctly, but the end result is a fine looking machine that was never available to buy in the UK.
American cars often have little details that are not found on European models. This car has an attractive gold pinstripe running the length of the vehicle, a feature that suits the Signal Red paintwork and Palomino interior.
Although not shown on the build sheet this car also features matching rear seats – yet another feature of this high specification car that proves it is ready for your European road trip.
The perfect car for some continental touring.
