This is 2003 Mercedes-Benz SL55 finished in Obsidian black metallic over a DESIGNO Mystic red two-tone leather interior. The SL55 is currently located in Niagara Falls Ontario, Canada and is listed by a private seller. The seller acquired it approx. 3 years ago and has added approx. 3k-kms during this time. The included Carfax report shows registration history in the provinces of New Brunswick and Ontario and there is no history of any accidents or insurance claims. The car is powered by a supercharged 5.4-liter V8 paired with a five-speed automatic transmission.


For US bidders, this SL55 is importable after a compliance letter from Mercedes-Benz has been obtained. For more information on transport in Canada/USA and import, please visit our Transport/Import page here.



The car showcases an elegant obsidian black metallic finish and boasts a power-folding convertible hardtop. Among its impressive features are bi-xenon headlights, front and rear parking sensors, fog lights, fender air vents, and AMG bodywork that includes a revised front spoiler, side skirts, and quad exhaust outlets.

The car's sporty aesthetics are further enhanced by 18" AMG five-spoke wheels, fitted with Continental ExtremeContact DWS06 Plus tires measuring 255/40 in the front and 285/35 in the rear. To ensure a smooth and responsive ride, the vehicle is equipped with Active Body Control (ABC) suspension, along with an Electronic Stability Program (ESP), Automatic Slip Control (ASR), and an AMG High Performance Braking System featuring cross-drilled rotors. The combination of these features delivers an exhilarating driving experience while maintaining excellent control and stability.


The front seats of this vehicle are a luxurious combination of heated and ventilated power-adjustable seats, elegantly upholstered in DESIGNO Mystic red two-tone leather. Complementing the seats are embroidered floor mats protecting the black carpets. The cabin exudes a refined atmosphere with contrasting upper surfaces featuring black stitching, enhanced by aluminum trim accents.
A range of convenient amenities is at your disposal, including dual-zone automatic climate control, cruise control, a high-quality Bose sound system, and an aftermarket touchscreen head unit equipped with Bluetooth connectivity.
The leather-wrapped steering wheel frames essential gauges, including a 330-kph speedometer, a 7k-rpm tachometer, and gauges for coolant temperature and fuel level. The digital odometer indicates 103k-kilometers of usage. A notable feature is the electronically toggleable speedometer, allowing you to switch between Kph and Mph readings on the same gauge face.



The hand-built supercharged 5.4-liter M113 V8 engine boasts a factory rating of 493 horsepower and 516 lb-ft of torque. A special touch of craftsmanship is highlighted by a plaque bearing the builder's name. Power from this impressive engine is efficiently transferred to the rear wheels through a five-speed automatic transmission, ensuring a thrilling and dynamic driving experience. In April 2023, the seller notes he had Mercedes conduct a comprehensive inspection during the oil change. Tires have 7mm tread depth all around, front brake pads measure 7mm, and rear brake pads show 8mm. Visual checks of valves and line cylinders with the roof in the service position presented no issues. No ABC leaks were found at that time as well.
