1985 Mercedes-Benz 500SEL 

For sale is a nice piece of mid 1980s luxury.  This car new in '85 sold for over $50,000!

Vehicle runs and drives great.  Starts right up, shifts easy, very fun to cruise around town.  Would make a great collector car, or a daily driver either one.

Has factory driver Airbag and Anti-Lock Brakes.

Has the desirable sunroof which works fine.

Has heated front and rear seats.

Automatic transmission.

Central locking system works great (No keyless entry in '85, but use the key to lock/unlock either front door or the trunk and all the other doors and trunk automatically lock/unlock).

Trunk is clean and shows little sign of use, and spare tire, jack and accessories are all still there.

Paint and emblems look excellent, especially to be a 28 year old car.

Radio works fine, and antenna goes up and down as it is supposed to.  The car has a button that allows you to choose the length to extend the antenna to.

Heat and air seem to work fine.

Couldn't get Cruise Control to work.

Emergency/Parking brake works well. 

Has a little wear in seat part of driver's seat (in photos) and a crack in the dash, but other than that interior is in great shape.

Vehicle has no rust.

Feel free to come by and see it in person or take it for a test drive.  Vehicle is for sale locally, so I reserve the right to end the auction at any time. 

If you have any questions or concerns at all, PLEASE ASK BEFORE BIDDING!   

Being sold AS-IS with no warranties.  No refunds or returns. 

Thanks for looking and good luck bidding!

Next Mercedes-Benz GLK to get AMG variant? Not likely...

Fri, 15 Mar 2013 09:13:00 EST

If you think Mercedes-Benz will slap an AMG badge on anything with wheels, think again. Word has it the German manufacturer will not offer buyers a performance version of the GLK, with Tobias Moers, director of AMG vehicle development, saying that he doesn't see a market for the car. That's not to say the picture won't change in the near future, however. According to CarAdvice.com, AMG is keeping a close eye on the arrival of the Porsche Macan.
"Maybe there will be a change in the market when the Porsche [Macan] comes up," Moers said, "but right now, no."
The real hitch in the giddy-up seems to be cost. Moers says developing the machine into something worthy of an AMG would represent "a huge investment." We can't exactly argue with that. Fortunately, AMG buyers have plenty of Mercedes-Benz models to choose from.

Mercedes-Benz S-Class presentation leaked, debuting in May

Fri, 22 Feb 2013 16:58:00 EST

WorldCarFans was reportedly sent what looks like a dealer presentation on the coming V222 series 2014 Mercedes-Benz S-Class. There have been hints for years as to the kinds of technology the world's best-selling large luxury sedan will contain, and it appears those hints had some foundation. To be shown in Germany on May 15 before a launch window that runs from September to November this year, the evolutionary design will be built of aluminum and steel, using that lighter material for the front end, roof and "detached body parts."
Among the new options buyers will be able to choose are the Rear Seat Package with rear seatbelt airbags and active buckles that extend, a Warmth and Comfort Package with heated seats front and back, heated armrests and side panels, and power rear seats with active ventilation and memory function. There's a chauffeur seating option that comes with 10-way adjustable rear seats, an extendable footrest and folding tables in the front seatbacks.
Blatant technology will be on display via two 12.3-inch screens, one for the dash cluster and one for the COMAND infotainment screen on the instrument panel. The third generation of Nightview Assist Plus will be able to detect animals as well as humans, and the next generation of Surround View will provide high-res views all around the car. A touchpad and a color head-up display will arrive in 2015. It will be the first Mercedes-Benz to utilize LED lighting everywhere, inside and outside the car.

XCAR marks 20-year anniversary of Senna's passing with Mercedes 190E Cosworth

Thu, 01 May 2014 12:45:00 EST

While the automotive world is focusing on the twentieth anniversary of Ayrton Senna's death, there was much, much more to the legendary driver than his untimely passing at the 1994 San Marino Grand Prix.
XCAR has the story of a younger Senna, who, by a stroke of luck, found himself matched up against a veritable dream team of nine Formula One champions, not to mention a cadre of German touring car aces. A "probably still pissed (drunk)" James Hunt, hard-driving Niki Lauda and future champion and rival Alain Prost, were in attendance for the one-off, spec race, which was put on by Mercedes-Benz, in honor of the opening of the Nürburgring's Grand Prix circuit. And Senna was on hand with the explicit goal of besting them all.
Each driver was handed a lightly modified, but brand-new 190E 2.3-16 Cosworth, a car that can best be though of as the distant ancestor of the lovable C63 AMG. As for the race itself, well, it was sort of like an introduction of what the sport could come to expect from the Brazilian.
