Last month an original Mercedes 190E Evolution II sold for an outstanding $220,000 at auction, followed by a Mercedes Mclaren SLR for $675,000 and in December we sold our Mercedes CLK DTM Coupe in a record 60 days after having an incredible amount of interest from collectors across the US. The month prior we sold our 2008 Mercedes CLK63 Black Series in 1 week and our 2012 Mercedes SLS AMG Black Series in 1 day.
Lets face it, with the introduction of the new Mercedes-AMG Hypercar Project One and Mercedes AMG GTR all things related to Mercedes AMG are HOT. When we recently got called on a 1989 Mercedes 560 SL AMG, built by AMG North America, we had to pursue the lead.
1980s were undeniably special. Radio waves were ruled by pop artists Madonna, Milli Vanilli and Bobby Brown and NBC aired the television series Miami Vice for 5 seasons, until May of 1989. Meanwhile, German tuning company, AMG, rocked the automotive world with its luxury 200mph Mercedes rockets.
Ordered new from Mercedes Ontario, its first and only owner sent our 1989 Mercedes 560SL car directly from the dealer to Missouri, home of AMG North America. Supplied with a specific AMG SL ordering sheet, the original owner spent over $8,000.00 on AMG options and accessories. Including, AMG wheels, side skirts, European headlamps, a telephone and even an AMG spec limited slip differential.
What’s remarkable about this car is not only is it arguably the nicest 560 SL we have ever seen, its that the original owner kept every envelope, document and brochure from AMG. In addition to being so well documented and babied since 1989 with only 24,000 miles, how many SL’s were modified by AMG? Our guess? A handful. How many left? Not many.
While not the most absurd thing to come out of the 1980s, our 1989 Mercedes 560 SL AMG is a piece of automotive history un-paralleled. One owner, 24,000 miles and documented from AMG.
