2001 Mercedes-Benz SL-Class SL600 2dr Convertible (6.0L 12cyl 5A)


Review

I purchased my 2001 SL500 from a dealership in Calfornia two weeks ago and drove it to Idaho. This Mercedes is the best all around automobile that I have ever had the pleasure of driving. The handling was fantantic, the performance is unbelievible, especially at top end. My other two super performance cars are a 03 & a 06 Z06 Corvettes which are dream cars, but the Mercedes is just the total package. An all around great driving car. You just feel great driving in it. My Mercedes is Red with Black leather interior. It has 44,000 miles on it. An engineering marvel!


Favorite Features

Well balance automobile, great top end performance, excellent handling, superior brakes, and of coarse great German engineering and looks. Excellent road feel and pretty quiet.

2001 Mercedes-Benz SL-Class SL600 2dr Convertible (6.0L 12cyl 5A)


Review

Exceptional 2001 SL600; purchased pre-owned from a dealer who'd gotten from the orignal owner. Totally stock,black, V12, 275/35 18s in back, 245/40 18s front, only 11,000 miles! Guess it just wasn't cool anymore for the country-club. Built like classic Benz cars were in-the-day. Heavy - more of a GT than a sports car; wonderful to cruise on the highway at any speed. V12 engine with 48-valves is a symphony. 5-speed automatic. Torque like locomotive. Low-down, brooding-and-mean looking, but a total gentleman. Leather everywhere. Wonderful, can border on scary-fast acceleration, but totally controlled Well cared-for examples are known to be reliable if maintained.


Favorite Features

V12, 48-valve engine - sublime! Full leather interior (everywhere - dash, A-pillars, doors, door-sills - everywhere). V12 can shut off 6-cylinders when- needed - actually gets decent fuel economy - in the mid-twenties-of-MPG on the highway. Did I mention V12? Everyone looks at this car.


Suggested Improvements

None.
