Love this car

Vehicle: 2004 Mercedes-Benz SL-Class SL600 2dr Convertible (5.5L 12cyl Turbo 5A)

Driving it in city traffic is like having a domestic house cat sitting on you lap purring. Drop the hammer on the open road and it transforms into a Bengal Tiger.




Worth the splurge

Great car. Great finishes. This car will certainly grab the attention of others, especially if it's the V12.

Loving my '05 sl600

Vehicle: 2004 Mercedes-Benz SL-Class SL600 2dr Convertible (5.5L 12cyl Turbo 5A)

i have not yet put on 1000mi., but this is simply the most wonderful car I have ever driven. This car is an "iron fist in a velvet glove". It is smooth, silky, solid, and fast to drive. This black beauty is beautiful to behold, top up or down. This happens very quickly. The seats are comfortable, yet firm. Whether it's a trip to the store, or a cruise up north for a 100 miles, I can't wait to drive it.

Sophisticated supercar

Vehicle: 2004 Mercedes-Benz SL-Class SL600 2dr Convertible (5.5L 12cyl Turbo 5A)

Unbeatable combination of luxury, performance and practicality. Beautiful but does not attract unwanted attention. Comfortable,quiet and smooth, totally reliable (so far). Easy access to local dealer service (nearest Ferrari, Aston, or Bentley dealer is 100 miles away). Was considering Porsche Turbo but dealer wanted me to make an appointment to drive owner's used turbo, rather than the new one I wanted on the lot.




Amazing
