This 1,100-Mile 1992 Mercedes-Benz 500SL Was Stolen Off the Showroom Floor, And Now It's For Sale



Should this post go under SL Talk or car for sale??

Every salvage auction lot has a story. Some are odd and funny, like a bunch of new dealership inventory that's been pummeled by hail. Some are darkly tragic, like this 2007 Lincoln MKZ that still contains half the previous owner's blood. And some just downright intriguing, like this 1,100-mile 1992 Mercedes-Benz 500SL that was reported stolen off the dealership's showroom floor, lovingly cared for over the last two and a half decades, and recovered by authorities in Pennsylvania late last year.

The time-capsule car showed up on Co.part last week, standing out as a flawless survivor on a website that usually specializes in chunks of metal bearing only a passing resemblance to the cars they once comprised. Bidding ends Tuesday at 5 p.m. eastern. The R129 Mercedes-Benz SL Class launched in 1989 as Daimler's most advanced luxury roadster, and the 500SL stood as the apex model with a 5.0-liter, 322-horsepower V-8 engine.
