2008 Mercedes McLaren SLR Roadster Listed on eBay – Original MSRP $514,690 – Reserve Price on eBay Just $288,777

Mercedes McLaren SLR Roadster for sale

This low mile, one owner 2008 Mercedes McLaren SLR Roadster in Crystal Galaxite Black with Silver Arrow 300SL Red Leather interior with black stitching and trim was just listed on eBay. Click this link to go right to the eBay auction.  My motivation behind listing the car on eBay… as usual, is an attempt to reach the widest audience possible. Over the past year or so I’ve shipped cars to Brazil, Peru, England, Germany, the Czech Republic not to mention countless cities across the United States. I’m secretly hoping this one gets shipped off to Dubai or the UAE where a 17 year old kid might enjoy street racing it against his friends in their Lamborghinis and Bugattis… I guess we’ll see

This example of the rare SLR Roadster has just 943 one owner miles on its odometer, originally from California, Sears Imports acquired this car from an online dealer auction, it had previously been in the car of Symbolic Motor Car Company in La Jolla, CA.

As you can see by this piece of the original window sticker, this is a highly optioned SLR Roadster, the special red leather interior is itself a $9,950 option. This SLR, like the others, has body panels constructed entirely of carbon fiber… it’s almost as much spy plane as it is super car. The 5.5 liter supercharged engine built by AMG pumps out 617 horsepower and more toque than most people will know what to do with… legally anyway.
Used SLR McLaren Roadster
The doors of the McLaren SLR might be the most recognizable feature of the car, while not ‘Gullwing’ doors like the 300SL cars of the 50s or the newer SLS AMG cars, the ‘scissor’ type doors on the SLR attract a lot of attention when you open them up, they aren’t like doors on a Lamborghini, they have a mechanism all their own, only found on the McLaren SLR.

Mercedes GL450 Heated Steering Wheel

2009 Mercedes Benz GL450 Highly Optioned w/ Premium 2 Package, KEYLESS GO, Rear DVD, Heating Package, One Owner Just Traded In!

Mercedes GL450 Heated Steering Wheel

This is a one owner, low mileage (just 20,839 miles) 2009 GL450 that was just traded in here at Sears Imports. In fact, this is the GL450 trade in that I drove back from The Dells, WI after meeting the buyer of the lightly used 2012 SL550 halfway between our dealership in Minneapolis and his home in the posh North Shore Chicago Suburb of Highland Park. You may have seen the video I made driving that SL to meet him in this GL that was posted on the DaveKnowsCars.com blog last week.

Low miles GL450 Mercedes

Just over 20,800 one owner miles!

In any case, this is a wonderfully equipped GL450 in Iridium Silver over black leather interior. The gentleman who traded this GL in was the first and only owner. In addition to this car, he also owned an S550 4matic, this wasn’t his only vehicle, hence, the low miles for a 2009 model. This GL450 is very well equipped, I have included a scan of the original window sticker below for your reference. It has the Premium 2 Package (P2 Package) which gives you things like Navigation, Keyless Go, Bi-Xenon headlamps and PARKTRONIC among other options. It also has the rare Heating Package which includes heated front and rear seats as well as a heated steering wheel. Add a trailer hitch and the rear DVD system and the original MSRP of this GL was over $73,000. (see original window sticker, just below)

The Carfax does show an accident. The person stopped behind the GL was rear ended, they then bumped into the GL. As a result of this light impact, the GL received a new rear bumper cover and new trailer hitch, as the smaller car went under the GL during the collision.

This is a non smoker car, in excellent condition, inside and out. We just installed a brand new set of tires. IT is ready to roll today, although I’m not sure exactly what we are going to be asking for the vehicle price-wise, I imagine it will be int he mid $40,000s range. This is sears Imports’ stock# 20247A, give me a call today if you want more info.

Dave Knows Cars Road Trip Video! 2012 Mercedes Benz SL550 Trip to The Dells, WI – Driver Impressions – Ya Mon!

2012-Mercedes-SL550-video

On Wednesday of this week I drove 3 1/2 hours from Minneapolis to The Dells, WI… about the halfway point between Minneapolis and Chicago, to meet the new owner of this lightly used (just over 5,000 miles) 2012 model Mercedes Benz SL550. It’s the longest single stint I’ve put in behind the wheel of an R230 series Mercedes-Benz SL (2003 – 2012). The 2012 model is the last of that series, the most highly evolved of that series, and an absolute joy to drive. Click the YouTube screenshot above or think link to watch the Road Trip Video! (commentary begins at about second 20).

2012-Mercedes-SL550-road-test

The car in the Sears Imports photo booth a few days before my road trip. AMG 19″ wheel package, black exterior, Nappa Leather Interior.

Despite what some people say, what might be printed in the marketing material, these aren’t really ‘sports’ cars in the true sense of the word, not like a Porsche 911 is a sports car or a Ferrari 360 Modena is a ‘sports’ car… sports cars are brutal, uncomfortable things, impractical for every day use, but absolute perfection on a race track. The Mercedes-Benz SL is a grand touring car… it handles beautifully and has plenty of power, but it’s a much more civilized machine. You can get in this car and tool around town at 25 – 35 mph comfortably or you can get on the highway and cruise at 75 mph all day in complete comfort.

You can adjust the Active Body Control suspension to be extremely tight and responsive if you want to really take to the twisties, you can use the steering wheel mounted shifter paddles if you want to decide when to shift gears (even though you’ll never be as quick or smooth as the computer controlled automatic transmission in Sport mode). This is a car to throw an overnight bag in the back of and cruise to a vineyard, the lake house or wherever else you might want to go.. the further away, the better.

The 3 1/2 hours I had behind the wheel of this car were comfortable and fun. I tried to find excuses to get off the highway, just to have another chance to apply the gas, liberally, as I cruised up the on ramp to re-join traffic. I kept the cruise control set at 74mph the whole time, a brisk pace, but I certainly wasn’t the driving faster than everyone on the highway. As I would cruise up on someone going slower, in the fast lane, they would see this low slung, black car with huge the huge three pointed star in the grille, bi-xenon headlamps on and immediately get over in the right lane… even though I was only going a couple of miles per hour faster, I think the car is perceived by other drivers to be going a lot faster than it really is. It is certainly capable of a lot faster… it just looks fast when you see it, but it’s the smoothness of the car that’s so amazing. Heavy and steady as you cruise down the highway.

Starting with the 2009 model year, SL class cars got all the latest electronics from Mercedes-Benz along with a cosmetic refresh. Sitting in the driver’s seat of a 2009 and newer you can’t help but notice the bulges in the aluminum hood, they do add a mystique to the view out the front windshield, and, I suppose, do something for the airflow over the hood, as Mercedes-Benz engineers never do anything without a real functional purpose behind it.

Interior enhancements for 2009 and newer cars include the hard drive based system that runs the navigation, music register, iPod connector, voice control… all the latest stuff, so, I hooked up my iPod, put on some Bob Marley, activated the Harmon/Kardon Logic7 Surround Sound system and daydreamed about green little Caribbean islands, I just watched  a great documentary on PBS about the history of Reggae in Jamaica, so I have been on a bit of a Marley kick the past few weeks.

2012-Mercedes-SL550-road-test-tobin

Nappa leather interior… a great combination with the black exterior.

Perhaps the most amazing thing about this SL road trip was that I was easily achieving just shy of 25mpg with the cruise control set at 74mph. The 382HP engine was much more fuel efficient than I expected in real life. The EPA window sticker says you’ll get considerably less than 25mpg on the highway in this car. While going through a couple of construction zones I reset the cruise control to 60mph… average fuel economy went to 26.2 mpg at that point… so decent gas mileage is certainly possible.

2012-Mercedes-SL550-gas-mileage

Notice the 74mph cruise control setting on the left side, 24.8mpg average on the right, 62mph average (due to some exits and on ramps).

So, I met my customer from Highland Park, IL at a McDonald’s restaurant in The Dells, WI where he bought me a cup of coffee and I laid out the paperwork for the transaction. He signed everything, gave me his check and the keys to the 2009 Mercedes-Benz GL450 he was trading in… this was my ride back home to Minneapolis. The GL450 is certainly a comfortable ride, safe, great visibility… but it’s quite a change from teh fighter plane like handling and low seating position of the SL…. it took some getting used to on the return trip.

We have already seen the first of the R230 cars fall below the $30,000 mark on the used car market. Since the 2013 models have already been release, the new body style, we will soon see the R230s drop in price even further from where they are today. They are very modern cars, light years ahead of the R107 models and much more advanced than even the R129 series SLs from the 1990s and early 2000s. As my customer and new found friend from Highland Park left the McDonald’s parking lot with a wave and a smile I thought… everyone ought to own a Mercedes-Benz SL at some point in their lives… and if you’re going to get one… the R230 series are some of the best.

2012 Mercedes Benz C300 4matic Sedan… Three Autoweek Editors Give High Marks!

2012-Mercedes-Benz-C300-4Matic
I was happy to see these very positive reviews that three Autoweek Magazine editors gave the 2012 Mercedes-Benz C300 Luxury model. I’ve been an Autoweek subscriber for almost 15 years now, it’s a great car magazine, a real mix of industry information as well as consumer info.
When these kinds of car guys review cars, so often it’s nothing but complaints unless they’re in the newest Ferrari or a Porsche GT3, handling is never good enough, nothing is ever fast enough, but I was happy to see these very positive reviews of the C class.
Like I always say about the C300.. it’s a great, all around car for every day use. If you want to go to a racetrack, take the BMW 3 series, it’s a better car for that, it’s lower, faster, and handles more like a race car, but for everyday comfort and very good handling, the C class is a great choice. The back seat is no S class, but for every day safety, reliability, good gas mileage and a little fun too… the C300 Sport or Luxury Sedan is a great choice in the crowded entry level luxury sedan segment.
The Autoweek article from autoweek.com:
By: Wes Raynal on 7/11/2012

EDITOR WES RAYNAL: Personally, I think the 2012 Mercedes-Benz C300 is a class act. It’s well built, feels solid like a tank, is fast enough (barely), has good grip with AWD—overall it’s a nice smallish car. I have not driven the new BMW 3-series yet, so at present this is my favorite small German sedan. Perhaps the 3-series will change my mind, but if it rides on BMW’s dreadful run-flat tires, I doubt it.

The car felt fairly nimble considering that it has AWD. But it really shines out on the freeway, where it charges forward so smooth and steady and sure-footed (for a small car), the next thing you know you’re going a bit too much over the speed limit. It’s the solidity and smoothness; it drives like a much bigger car. Does that mean it’s a little soft? A little wafty? Perhaps, but at my advanced age I find I like that more and more.

My only beef is that back-seat room is a little tight. With five-foot-eight-inch me in the driver’s seat and a teenager behind me, legroom is tight back. For short trips it’s fine. On longer ones, I’d probably here some whining.
2012-Mercedes-Benz-C300-4Matic-interior

EXECUTIVE EDITOR ROGER HART: This C-class was a joy to spend some time with. The overall comfort level is quite high, and the only ones who might complain would be those stuck in the back seat. As a daily driver used for commuting to and from the office, this car is perfect. I didn’t find the AWD to really hamper the handling or feel of the car, and in fact, if one was using this as a daily driver anywhere in the snowbelt, having it would be confidence-inspiring. The 3.0-liter V6 is adequate; you won’t win many light-to-light drag races, but the benefit is average fuel economy in the mid-20s.

This car seems a bit stouter than the previous-gen car, a little more robust. That should give buyers some confidence that the thing will last. Previous-generation Cs had some issues with that (see our final report on a long-term C-class wagon as just one example), but this thing is tight, with excellent panel gaps all around and an interior that is simple and straight-forward—once you get the hang of operating the COMAND system.

I was surprised that this car didn’t have a backup camera as it has the standard navigation/infortainment screen, and as far as options, that was the only thing missing. For a car priced in the low $40,000, I think this represents real value in the entry-level luxury segment, and I’d love to have a Baby Benz in my garage.

ROAD TEST EDITOR JONATHAN WONG: The C-class coupe was a new addition to the lineup for the 2012 model year, but the sedan also enjoyed a light update. From a driving standpoint, the seven-speed automatic transmission was updated to be more responsive, more fuel efficient and quieter, and it does perform well. When teamed with this V6, it offers crisp shifts and cracks off downshifts almost immediately after you squeeze the throttle to speed up.

Past C-class cars were a letdown in almost every area, but I’ve become a fan of the current model. Build quality in the interior is much better, with nice materials, and the exterior styling is handsome and clean.

It’s also become a decent handler, displaying respectable grip in corners and decent steering feel and response. One thing Mercedes still needs to work on is the brake-pedal feel that is still too squishy for my liking. In C300 form, this car is still more of an around-town cruiser than a corner carver, which is fine. It’s very comfortable for daily use, with a suspension that absorbs bumps beautifully and a cabin that is well isolated from unwanted noises.

This car still doesn’t have the reflexes of a BMW 3-series, but it has closed the gap a whole lot, and it’s something that you can still have a fair amount of fun with if you throw it around. I just wish Mercedes still offered a manual transmission as it used to back in the old days. That’s about the only thing I miss about the old C-classes.

Mercedes S500 or S55 AMG with 80k – 100k Miles, Crazy Idea for a Daily Driver? Not Entirely.

I got an email from Dave Knows Cars Blog reader ‘Steve’ in South Florida a couple of weeks ago. He was looking for a late model Mercedes Benz S class in the 80,000 – 100,000 mile range to use as a daily driver for his 40 mile round trip commute for under $10,000, his questions was simple,  Is this a crazy idea. Well, read on and you will see my answer.

It isn’t an entirely crazy idea, you just have to make sure you find the right car… and he did, as I got an update from him this week, the photo accompanying this post (below) is Steve’s black 2004 S430 that he purchased from a Mercedes-Benz Dealer in Miami just the other day. Congratulations Steve! It looks like you paid up for a very good example that should be a good car for you for many years to come.

Here is Steve’s original email to me:

Hi Dave
 
I was considering buying a 80-110k mile c 2001 S Class S500 or S55 for under $10k. I will drive it around 40 miles a day, 5 days a week. Is that a crazy idea?
What should I look for or do before I buy?
 
Thanks
Steve

Hi Steve,I don’t think it’s a completely crazy idea. I would pass on an S55 though. They’re just wound so tightly, such high performance engines will never last as long as the solid 500 V8 and they’re just that much more expensive to fix.

An S500 of the vintage you’re talking about, even under 10k can still be a very good car. I don’t think there’s anything more comfortable and they’re as safe a car as you can buy.Every once in a while we’ll get that 2002 or 2003 model with 50k or 75k miles… maybe it was an old guy’s second car or something, those are great finds and never last long at dealerships, as there’s a huge market for these cars once they get to be so cheap, but you have to find a good one.I wouldn’t necessarily run from a 90 – 110k car… it just has to be a nice one, well maintained.

There are plenty of one or two owner cars that have been well cared for, dealer serviced by the old guy who brings it in when it needs something, but might keep his cars for 8 – 10 years.We have a lot of those kinds of folks at our dealership.

I don’t know where you live, but if you go to the ‘old money’ dealership… more cars like this show up as opposed to the dealerships in the new money areas that lease more cars than they sell.. if that makes any sense to you. You might need to do some demographic research, or find a car guy like me at one of your local dealers, and just kind of ask him about those kinds of guys. They’re out there… you just need someone to call you when they trade in their car for a new model.

With a car of that age and mileage, lots of stuff will have been replaced and repaired on the car, so you can’t get scared about seeing ‘cam seals replaced’ on a Carfax or vehicle history, or ‘transmission fluid leak’ or something like that, they will have all had such problems and will have had things like that replaced.If you try to buy from a private party, ABSOLUTELY have a pre purchase inspection done, even if you’re buying from a dealer, do that… you can take it to a dealer or reputable indy shop that knows the cars. I’d check with someone in your local MB club chapter, call the president, tell them what you’re considering and ask if he would recommend an individual in the club who you could talk to you about finding a place…. they might even know someone with such a car.

I would try to find a very clean car, cosmetically clean, inside and out.. first impressions mean a lot to me when I’m looking at a used car. if it’s clean, inside and out, chances are it was well cared for… and when I mean clean, I don’t just mean, not dirty… but look at the door sills and jambs for wear, look at the buttons on the dash.. are they all work off, the lettering and icons? are the carpets worn and matted from being wet and dry and wet and dry.. or was this the kind of person who put all season mats on top of the carpet mats to protect them?

You’ll want to make sure the suspension is good… bushings and springs are one thing, but the airmatic shocks in these cars can be quite expensive.

They’re going to have chips and imperfections outside at that mileage… but you’re accepting of that I’m sure… but there are cars that have been better cared for than others, you can just tell. Curb rashed wheels are a tell tale sign of a drive / park by feel… I never like those cars.

Those are some of the things I would look at… I have sold S500s with 175k miles on them… they can be good cars for a long time, but hopefully, with the help of a tech and a ppi, you can get one that doesn’t have a ton of immediate needs. I shipped one to a limo service in Colorado, it was an S430 (just as good as a 500), I shipped another old S class to a guy in AZ. People do travel to get these, or use nationwide searches to find them.

I would find a good indy shop to maintain it for you long term, someone who really knows the cars an is trusted by the local MB club. They will be a great resource. Dealership maintenance at that point can be expensive (of course I didn’t just write that, you didn’t hear that from me).

I always say…. and I say this to customers all the time… In the end.. all old cars are like hand grenades without pins… they all blow up eventually… but with proper maintenance, and if you start with a well cared for, decent example, it might not blow up on your watch.

Don’t be afraid to pay up for a really nice example, remember, ‘there is nothing more expensive than a cheap Mercedes-Benz’

Thanks for the question, thanks for reading the blog. Let me know how it turns out.

Dave

Steve wrote me again this week, with the results of his search.. .and this happened faster than I would have imagined, but when the right car like this comes along, you can’t wait around.

Hi Dave
 
Picked up my 2004 S420 today. Bought from Miami Merc dealer. I’d been to see him and he said he would call when a good one came in. Sold by them in 2004. 2 owners. Trade in against E 350 Perfect carfax report. They did the brakes, ac, full service, wax etc before I picked it up. 91000 miles. $14,200. 90 days warranty. I narrowly missed it being shipped to Colombia but they couldn’t get the cash fast enough!
 
It’s silent on the road. Auto box is smooth. Engine makes a great purr. Interior spotless. Spare tire never used. Stereo is amazing.
 
Thanks for your help

That’s how easy it can be… and how funny is it… that Colombians in Miami couldn’t come up with the money fast enough!? I guess I was just a big Miami Vice fan when I was a kid, the Colombians in Miami ALWAYS had the cash!

1995 Mercedes E320 Convertible

Mercedes Benz Young Classic and Future Collectible! 1995 Mercedes Benz E320 Cabriolet Polar White w/ Oyster Beige Leather Interior Just 38,000 Miles!

1995 Mercedes E320 Convertible

I don’t use the words ‘Future Collectible’ very often when it comes to modern Mercedes-Benz vehicles… read on…. We just acquired this 1995 Mercedes Benz E class Convertible, E320 Cabriolet to be precise, from a local finance company. It is in excellent condition, inside and out.
Mercedes E320 Cabriolet

There are very few modern Mercedes-Benz vehicles that have any real chance of future collectability, mainly due to the fact that so many of each model are actually manufactured. Most Mercedes-Benz experts an aficionados can agree that one of the few cars with the possibility of future appreciation are the E class cabriolets from the early and mid 1990s. Chances are it will be another 25 years before any real appreciation is seen, but look at the 280SE cabriolets from the early 1970s… a good one is well over $100,000 today, they are the most valuable cars of their era… easily out valuing any sedan and even the SLs of the period.
Mercedes E320 Cabriolet

E class cabriolets like this one were very expensive and quite rare in their day. Low mileage examples, like this one, are out there… the best survivors today are those cars that led charmed lives under the care of wealthy individuals. They were driven sparingly and were often third or fourth cars in the garage. This happens to be one such example.

Mercedes E320 Cabriolet

Driver’s seat and rest of interior is in excellent condition.

The clean Carfax vehicle history report of this car shows one owner who moved around to several Western states with the car during the first ten years of its life. In 2006 it was leased to its most recent owner through the finance company we bought the car from. It has been driven occasionally during Spring and Summer months in Minnesota since it arrived in the state in the Spring of 2006.
1995 Mercedes E320 Cabriolet

The pain on the outside of the vehicle is extremely nice, shiny and dent free, clearly garaged its entire life. The interior is incredibly nice, there is almost no wear on the seats, there is no excessive cracking or creasing on the seat bolsters, like you see on so many other examples. This car is clean, clean, clean, inside and out.

Mercedes E320 Cabriolet

Legitimate back seat, the car easily holds 4 people.

I drove the vehicle this morning and am happy to report is performs like a new car. The air conditioning blows ice cold, despite the very high temperatures outside today. The transmission shifts smoothly through all gears, the 6 cylinder engine performs perfectly. This E320 engine was the engine used in most Mercedes Benz vehicles through the early 2000s. It was installed in most E classes, high end C class vehicles and eventually int he M class SUVs when they appeared on the scene in 1998. It’s a ‘bulletproof’ engine that will serve its new owner well for hundreds of thousands of miles if maintained properly. I have several friends in the Mercedes-Benz Club with these cars with in excess of 100k miles on them.
Mercedes E320 Cabriolet

The wheels on this car are not original, they are later wheels, probably from a newer CLK. The tires are in good shape, if you’re a stickler for originality, a set of used, original wheels for this car could easily be sourced for just a few hundred dollars.

Mileage on this particular example is just 38,777… this is the kind of cream puff everyone looks for. I expect to list it on eBay Motors this afternoon for the national market. Call today to put a deal together on this rare survivor. Price new was over $80,000 back in 1995! Our price today is $17,477.

Mercedes SL Capri Blue Color

The rear badge says its an SL550, it IS NOT, SL550s didn’t come out until 2007, the previous owner changed the badges.

I have included a copy of the original equipment list below for your reference.. remember though… SLs in ’06 were standard with heated and ventilated seats, navigation and all the other goodies.
