The SL500 is a dream vehicle. The
power to weight ratio makes it a
thrill to drive. Although it is a
sports car it drives like a touring
sedan. I can drive for hours and not
feel tired of driving, like in others
vehicles I have driven. It is a
stylish vehicle that always turns
heads. The engineering of the vehicle
never ceases to amaze me. The only
drawback has been the storage of the
hardtop while not in use (9 months in
New Orleans). The design engineers
have corrected that in 2002, but I
still love the body style of the 1998.
The handling and power of a true
sports car with the driving comfort of
a touring sedan. Surprising storage
space for a two seater.
