1989 Mercedes 560 SL Convertible for Sale. 5.6L V8 engine, automatic transmission.

The 560 SL was the highest displacement 107 model produced in the 18-year run of the model. The 5.6 Liter engine was only produced for the North America market from 1986 through end of the run in 1989. The 560 had quite a bit more power and was quite a bit faster than the earlier 380. In fact, the 0-60 time was almost 4 seconds faster and top speed increased from 110 MPH to 130 MPH, a huge improvement. Nonetheless, the 107 has been an iconic piece of automotive history offering luxurious touring enjoyment with timeless style and sophistication. The 560 SL offered here has been in long-term family ownership and has been driven and enjoyed for countless summers. The car is all original and garage kept, it starts, runs and drives very nice. This car does show some cosmetic flaws that I have tried to include in the pictures. This car is priced to sell, ready to be your summer driver. Additional features and options include; Both Tops with factory storage stand, 5.6L V8 Engine, Auto, A/C, PS, PB, Cruise Control, SRS Airbags, Chrome Mirrors/Bumpers/Grill, Power Windows, Rear Defrost, Fog Lights, Cloth Floormats, Woodgrain Interior Trim, Owners Manuals,Tire Tools, Full Spare Tire. 101K miles. This classic Mercedes runs as good as it looks!

Volvo S60 Polestar concept plays in the snow with Mercedes C63 AMG

Thu, 24 Jan 2013 19:58:00 EST

Chris Harris took to a snowy stretch of tarmac to get a fingertips-on-the-wheel feel of the Volvo S60 Polestar concept. Harris says the turbocharged sedan with 508 horsepower and 424 pound-feet of torque - and a manual transmission - is "a study to see if Volvo can get back into the fast-car market." The Polestar S60 concept, one of which was already purchased for $300,000 by a private buyer, is still making the publicity rounds because even Volvo's Chinese owners realize that, as Harris says, "Volvo sold more cars because it made fast cars" like the old 850 T5 Wagon that stormed the British Touring Car Championship in the 1990s.
For reference, Harris compares the blue wonder to the Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG and its 487 hp and 442 lb-ft. The question is, were Volvo to get the price of a production version of the S60 Polestar to climb way down from its 200,000-pound sticker, could it be worthy competition to the established giants?
You can watch Harris divine the answer via a lot of drifting through the snow and a drag race in the video below.

France formally moves to ban Mercedes vehicles using contested refrigerant

Wed, 31 Jul 2013 18:00:00 EST

That didn't take long. Shortly after a French administrative court gave the French government a ten-day window to reconsider its ban on registrations of Mercedes-Benz A-, B- and CLA-Class cars using the prohibited R134a refrigerant, the government cited an EU directive to formalize banning the sale of the cars. The country's environmental ministry said that registrations "will remain forbidden in France as long as the company does not to conform to European regulations," meaning so long as they do not use the approved R1234yf refrigerant.
Daimler had won the administrative court decision by challenging France's application of a "safeguard" provision in which the EU allows a country to block sales of cars that would "seriously harm the environment." In spite of Daimler's victory, France has cited that very provision as basis for the continuation of the ban.
Daimler got permission from Germany's KBA federal motor authority to keep selling cars with the coolant banned by EU politicians, and is using that national permission as the right to sell the cars throughout Europe. Meanwhile, above that battle, German politicians are asking the EU to let Mercedes sell the cars in France while the KBA does more testing, at the same time as the EU is threatening Germany with repercussions if it doesn't bring the KBA and Daimler into line.

Mercedes-Benz GLA45 AMG spied in Sweden

Wed, 16 Jan 2013 15:00:00 EST

We've spotted the all-new Mercedes-Benz GLA testing a couple times in recent months in getting closer to production form and shedding camouflage, but now it looks like we're see our first look at the AMG version of this compact crossover. The low ride height might trick some into thinking that we're just seeing the already-confirmed A45 AMG out testing, but the unique beltline, rear doors and side windows confirm this is some version of the GLA-Class.
What makes us so confident that this is the AMG model? Well, for starters, this prototype has beefier brakes with cross-drilled front and rear rotors and bigger front calipers, but it also sports dual exhaust outlets poking through the rear fascia and a suspension that has been lowered considerably. Our spy shooters said that this car's exhaust note made it almost certainly an AMG model.
Just to be clear, the GLA AMG will not be powered by a 4.5-liter engine. The closely related A45 AMG will carry the "45" in its name to celebrate the first 45 years of AMG, and our sources seem to indicate the AMG version of the GLA will do the same. We're expecting this sporty crossover to produce as much as 350 horsepower from its AMG-tuned four-cylinder engine, and like the all-new E63 AMG, it could very well come standard with 4Matic all-wheel drive.
