1986 560SL cost new?

Somewhere I saw a post that this car cost $58,000 new. Seems high - could that be in today's dollars?

Bill,
According to MBNA's price lists, the prices of the 560 SL were as follows.
As of November 1, 1985:
560 SL, Price, East and Gulf Coasts: $48,200 560 SL, Price, West Coast: $48,600
There were only three options at extra cost:
Orthopedic Backrest, Right Manual: $75 Orthopedic Backrest, Left Manual: $75 Heated Seats: $385
As of February 18, 1986:
560 SL, Price, East and Gulf Coasts: $51,000 560 SL, Price, West Coast: $51,420
There were only three options at extra cost:
Orthopedic Backrest, Right Manual: $80 Orthopedic Backrest, Left Manual: $80 Heated Seats: $405
As of May 15, 1986:
560 SL, Price, East and Gulf Coasts: $53,300 560 SL, Price, West Coast: $53,730
There were only three options at extra cost:
Orthopedic Backrest, Right Manual: $85 Orthopedic Backrest, Left Manual: $85 Heated Seats: $420
If you take a West Coast price from the May price list and add all options, you'll get $54,420. After taxes, $58,000 doesn't seem that unreasonable.
Best regards, Danny
