2008 SL55 value database

I have located a total of 67 VIN numbers out of the 464 SL55s produced for model year 2008. Data sources are from various on line classifieds and are a combination of asking and selling prices. Here are the results so far:

Average mileage: 54,095
Highest mileage: 137,699
Lowest mileage: 16,500
Average asking/selling price:$35,623 (does not include 2 vehicles listed as "salvage"
Highest asking price: $109,000 (Lorenser rebuild from salvage)
Lowest asking price: $17,500 (137,699 miles)
Highest number of owners: 6
Dominant exterior color:
Black-63%
Silver-(various)- 24%
White-6%
Steel Grey-4%
Red-3%
Other facts:
Almost half the cars logged so far are located in either California or Texas.
I was only able to confirm 2, 1 owner cars
The majority of the cars are being offered for sale by dealers as opposed to private sale.

If you would like to add your 2008 SL55 to this database, post your VIN #, Int/Ext color, Location, mileage, and the value you would place on your car if you offered it for sale. I'll provide updates periodically. At some point, I'll post the entire data base when I get at lease half accounted for. 2008 models only please.

Smithwn55,
Thanks for the info. You are the 109th 2008 SL55 in my database. However you did not specify the interior and exterior color. Need this info to complete the listing.
Regards,
J.Chip

Hey Joe
Sorry, thought you were using VIN decode.

It's Black/Black for Interior/Exterior.

Have a great day.

Bill

Thanks Bill. Added you're info. You are among the top 20 in low mileage (#19) in my database. Based on the average value for this group, I'd say your car is worth closer to $40K assuming its condition is in keeping with such a low mileage car. Enjoy the Beast! Never selling mine either.

Far away.

If you ever get the itch to drive down and experience VIR (VA Int'l Raceway) let me know. That would be a hoot!

No, just tracking the 2008 models since they were the last year of production and produced in limited quantities (464)

Gotcha Russ. To complete the data, please provide your opinion of its value or what you would ask if you wanted to sell.

Thanks

Greg,

Tried to reply reply to your PM but not sure I did it right.
In any case, I simply started a spreadsheet in Excel that lists the following info: VIN# Ext color Int color Mileage Date data was collected (mo/yr) Location Asking Price/Value Comments I casually research cars for sale from various websites (Car Guru, Ebay, Auto Trader, BAT, etc.) but add only those that provide a VIN #. The comments section may contain number of owners (If stated), accident history (if any), or any other useful info that may impact value. I sort the list by mileage and plot the results (mileage vs value) which gives a pretty good indication of of market values along a trend line. To date I've captured 111 VIN numbers or 23.9% of all 2008 SL55's made for sale in NA. BTW..You'd be surprised how many cars resurface for sale over and over. When they do, I update the info associated with their VIN and resort the list. J.Chip PS: have a similar list for my 1991 560 SEC with over 200 VINs!
