GR Auto Gallery is pleased to offer this 2003 Mercedes-Benz SL500 for your consideration. This wonderful Mercedes-Benz convertible is powered by a 5.0L V8. The naturally-aspirated 5.0-liter M113 V8 was factory rated at 302 horsepower with 339 lb-ft of torque when new, and sends power to the rear wheels via a seven-speed SpeedShift automatic transmission. Finished in Diamond Silver Metallic, the exterior looks classy and will be well received in any situation. Complementing the silver exterior is a black leather interior that features some of the softest and luxurious leather found on a car. While sitting inside the car, one can use the center-mounted switch to raise and lower the power hard-top in mere seconds. So if you are in the market for a clean convertible this is the car for you! Please call or email us today for more information.

Mercedes-Benz did not announce what the abbreviation "SL" meant when the car was introduced. Leicht is either "easy" as an adverb or "light" as an adjective in German. Defining a car it has to mean "Light".It is often assumed that the letters stand for Sport Leicht. One car magazine in 2012 declared that the abbreviation "SL" - "securitized and personally signed by Rudolf Uhlenhaut " meant Super Leicht. This contradicts "Mercedes-Benz 300 SL" of Engelen / Riedner / Seufert, which was produced in close cooperation with Rudolf Uhlenhaut showing that the abbreviation meant Sport Leicht. Mercedes-Benz used both forms until 2017. It was even called Super Super. On the company website, it was called Sport Leicht until 2017 and then changed to Super Leicht. For a long time, it was unclear what intention the company had at the time when assigning the letter combination. It was not until the beginning of 2017 that a chance finding in the corporate archive clarified that the abbreviation SL stood for Super-Leicht.
