The 600SL is certainly a modern-classic that not only exceeds in looks, but in performance too.
The 6.0L V12 engine offers more than enough power, while the handling of the vehicle is superb.
However, the greatest achievement of the 600SL is the ride quality.
It is heavy enough to iron out most rough terrain.
On the other hand, reliability is an issue, especially with the electrical components.
The heat from the engine also does a number on certain plastic parts within the engine bay.
The biggest challenges one will face with the 600SL is the wiring harnesses and insulation.

A fantastic car that was designed to attract Rolls owners. Inspired by the earlier 600 Pullmans ( 1964-1972), this car is a incredible piece of German design and engineering. The V12 engine is one of a kind and the proud owner of the 600 will stand above and beyond the standard road fare. Be warned! You will need deep pockets to maintain this baby-no shortcuts,no skipping on maintenance and no "Jiffy Lube" oil changes! But cared for properly, you can have this car for many,many years!
