1998 Mercedes-Benz SL-Class SL600 SL1 Sport 2dr Convertible


Review

Just bought this beautiful SL600 Sport, all black. With only 52k miles it drives like a new car! After considerable research, I went with the 48 valve V 12 because the newer bi- turbo versions are much less reliable and have far more plastic. If you drive one, you will fall in love with it. Driving reasonably I am getting 17 mpg with 70% around town, 30% highway, what a nice surprise for a 400 hp V-12. These cars had 1 man who built each engine and the smooth delivery of power has to be felt to be believed. I know they are expensive to repair, the drive is worth it though. Awesome stereo with Sirius radio (highly recommended). Just driving the car feels special.~$125k when new. A bargain now!


Favorite Features

The V 12 engine, excellent transmission, beautiful wood interior, awesome sound system. Cool and safe pop up roll bar. Ultra solid feel at all speeds. So nimble for a 4600 pound car (it's true). Looks great as a hardtop and convertible.


Suggested Improvements

None really.
