Those who can afford anything choose the Mercedes-Benz SL500 R230 grand touring roadster.

That’s the premise of the cinema-quality Lucky Star commercial that introduced the Mercedes-Benz SL500 R230 in 2002. Mr. H, who always gets what he wants, attracts the attention of intelligence agencies for his impossible luck in gambling and the stock market. When they pursue him by car and helicopter, he makes a clean getaway with his beautiful girlfriend and a little luck in the Mercedes-Benz SL500 R230.

The 2-door convertible Mercedes-Benz SL500 R230 is so incredibly attractive that it became a favorite among the rich and powerful during its 2002-2008 production run and remains a coveted status symbol today. Its beautiful head-turning body contours were perfected through intense development involving a supercomputer and 10 designers from Germany, California and Japan. Few cars project good taste with such confidence and finesse.

Sculpted exterior perfection is complemented by a comfortable interior with handsome, flowing lines and just about every imaginable amenity. Multiple seat and steering wheel adjustments ensure finely tailored driving comfort and the ride is supremely quiet even after retracting the hardtop into the trunk with the flick of a switch. You can hold clear conversations with your traveling companion without raising your voice except at very high speeds whether traveling on the German autobahn, a California freeway or an expressway in Japan.

Acceleration is extraordinarily smooth and powerful thanks to a 5.0-liter SOHC aluminum V8 engine with 24 valves, Bosch Motronic engine control and fuel injection. It generates 302 horsepower at 5,600 rpm and a remarkable 340 foot pounds of torque that spreads all the way from 2700 to 4250 rpm — propelling you from 0 to 60 mph in 6.1 seconds and attaining an electronically governed top speed of 155 mph. This very satisfying balance of smoothness and sportiness is one of the many reasons SL500 owners tend to continue buying SL500s.

Handling is also smooth and precise, courtesy of rack-and-pinion steering and a semiactive suspension that continuously adjusts spring rates to reduce body pitch, roll and dive. ALB and computer-assisted electrohydraulic braking also ensure highly controlled deceleration.

This used 2003 Mercedes-Benz SL500 is in immaculate condition with only 6,830 km on the odometer. It features a rear spoiler, spoked 20-inch aluminum wheels and a dark gray interior with tasteful wooden accents. Immensely satisfying to drive, it is also guaranteed to demand respect from hotel valets and service station attendants in the country we export it to.

Whether you seek a secondhand German luxury car like the SL500 with right or left hand drive, an Italian supercar or JDM sports car rarely seen outside of Japan, contact Japan Car Direct and take advantage of our unrivaled experience and connections in the Japanese used car market.

We help you find the secondhand car of your dreams from individual owners, specialty dealers and used car auctions around Japan; arrange for the best price and a third-party inspection; and have your vehicle shipped to your country without delay.
