2003 Mercedes-Benz SL55 AMG

Love, hate, or indifferent, red cars draw eyes. Sometimes that is a bad thing, like when you are doing 87 mph in a 70 mph zone on the highway. Other times it is a good thing, like when you are selling a car. I think the term “resale red” does carry a lot of weight because consumer studies have shown that people who drive red cars are looked at differently. Red is fast and aggressive, while the earth tones are a little bit more subdued and conservative. Only makes sense, but when push comes to shove, are you willing to actually pony up the cash for a red car? You can see where I’m going with this with today’s car, a 2003 Mercedes-Benz SL55 AMG up for sale in Florida. Just 30,000 miles and looks like it is dripping wet just sitting there. Anyone brave enough for “arrest me red?”

2003 Mercedes Benz SL55 AMG

Very Rare Magma Red over Charcoal Leather interior

Only 30k Original Pampered Mikes

This SL55 was sold new in KY and made its way to south Florida. This SL55 is equipped with Panoramic Roof which is also rare.

3 Keys, Books, Window Sticker, MB Trickle Charger and a folder full of service records!!!

No Accidents, Clean Carfax and Original Paint

Kudos to this dealer, they know how to take a photo and edit them as well. This rare Magma Red SL55 basically jumps off the screen at you. Even on the inside, it looks extremely clean for a 2003 and has the rare panoramic roof as well. No mention of service or condition which is always disappointing as even as a strong a combination this is, the suspension can fail and give you headaches and a giant bill to sort it all out.

Nearly $26,000 is on the higher end for this car, but it is for sure one of the nicer ones for sale at the moment. I don’t think it is a great deal at all, but if you would buying this as a really long term hold, I’d think you’d do fine. As long as you can keep your speed under control, nothing to dislike about this one.

  1. In this time period choosing Firemist Red was a better choice. Flashy and classy.

  2. Great color combo!!

  3. I recently purchased a Mars Red CLS55, one of only one or two in the world. When the seller, a friend, told me it was red, I almost didn’t want it. Since he’s a trusted friend I figured I’d prefer to buy his over any others. I did some digging to find out this car was custom ordered in this color. I mean, you couldn’t just walk into a dealer in 2005-6 and order a Mars Red CLS. The dealer had to work with the factory in Affalterbach to have this done. A little bit like Porsche’s PTS. Amazing stuff!

    I love it now. Considering RWD for other cars, even…
