1995 Mercedes-Benz SL-Class SL500 2dr Convertible

Review

The looks this car gets are off the charts, but they come at a hefty price. I only drive my SL500 6 months a year. Therein lies the problem; already expensive cost of ownership, exacerbated by spreading the costs over only six months. That said, I still keep it, and wait for the spring to bring nice weather. The thrill of hitting the accelerator on this 300+ HP beast is beyond compare. Driving with the top down on a nice day is one of the finest auto experiences around. Then, pulling into valet parking of a crowded cafe or club is bound to stroke the ego of any redblooded American male.

Favorite Features

300+ HP engine blows away all but the most serious performance cars on the road, and the lines of this car are gorgeous.

Suggested Improvements

The tape deck is a waste. The storage space for the tapes is useless, and should be modified w/ aftermarket parts to hold cupholder or other useful storage. Though the power rearview mirror is nice, anyone driving the car immediately grabs it and attempts to move it by hand.
