Most Fun For Your Buck
By Sacha Prins on
Vehicle1992 Mercedes-Benz 500-Class 500SL 2dr Convertible
ReviewI recently bought myself a second hand
silver-grey '92 500SL Mercedes-Benz as
my 'summer vehicle'. I already was a
Mercedes fan (reliability) for some
years, and since we have a '89 560SL in
the family I knew it was a fun vehicle.
Well, it sure is! I've been driving it
for a couple of months now and I'm very,
very impressed with the comfort it
provides, especially for a (now) 11-year
old car. Being 11 years old I reckon I
will have some expenses to keep the car
in optimum condition, but in contrast,
the price of purchase was one-fifth of
the original sticker price.
Best FeaturesThe 5 liter - 8 cylinder - 320 HP engine combined with the way the auto-gear-shift is programmed makes for a great ride. I love the 'large displacement' feeling the car provides (in contrast with e.g. Porsche's or Ferrari's nervousness).
Worst FeaturesI reckon all the things I'd like to see improved have been improved already in the new SL500 model. But for now my '92 model provides everything I could wish for (and afford).
