This 1989 Mercedes-Benz 560 SL roadster was sold new on 8 May 1989 to its original owner Mr. Berlijieri. An incredibly detailed caretaker, Berlijieri made sure that his Mercedes was regularly serviced and properly maintained. Presented in its original Astral Silver Metallic (735) with black soft-top (740) over a black leather interior (271), the 560 SL is accompanied by its original matching removable hardtop. The car was originally purchased with both Canadian build options 460 and 491, denoting the more powerful heat exchange unit and KM/H gauges.

Offered with detailed documentation, this 560 SL has been carefully enjoyed and preserved in its original condition as it was delivered and remains completely stock and without modification. Accompanying the SL is the service history, including a clean Carfax report, along with the original service books with stamps, owner’s manuals in clear vinyl pouch, metal identification plate, spare master/valet key, jack, spare wheel, tool roll, first aid kit, and its matching removable hardtop with roof tool. This 560 SL roadster was the recipient of a recent service in November 2019, which included removal and replacement of all fluids and filters. Additionally, a brake fluid flush and Ontario Safety Inspection were completed, for which the invoices are included on file. Furthermore, four brand new tires just installed.

Presented with 49,356 original kilometers (30,600 miles) from new, this 560 SL shows incredibly well throughout. As the final year of production for the iconic chrome bumper SL, this 1989 560 SL represents the end of an era for many Mercedes-Benz enthusiasts.
