2004 Mercedes-Benz SL-Class SL500 2dr Convertible (5.0L 8cyl 7A)


Review

The AMG package makes this Benz a rocket. It is quiet and handles like a dream. This Benz is the best of the four that I have owned. Some quibble about limited trunk space. Name me a rocketship that does have a spacious trunk.


Favorite Features

It goes like hell. And corners like the big dogs.


Suggested Improvements

Air condition the seats...they are quite hot after sitting out in the sun for anytime at all.

2004 Mercedes-Benz SL-Class SL55 AMG 2dr Convertible (5.4L 8cyl S/C 5A)


Review

This is the car everyone wants with good reason. Prior to taking delivery of my SL55, I drove a Honda S2000 (fun but very basic) and a 2003 SLK32 (too small, horrible steering response). Even with a weight of over two tons, the SL55's 493 horses will pin you to your seatback while surounding you with every conceivable luxury appointment. I drove SL55's at the Homestead-Miami Speedway in June's AMG Challenge, just to see what this beast could do when fully unleashed. What a rush! Not your typical no-frills sports car, but a lot more fun to drive!


Favorite Features

Watching the retractable hardtop, the High-Low beam HID headlights, and, of course, the amazing horsepower and torque!


Suggested Improvements

Don't destroy the looks by giving it the new SLK / SLR front-end treatment.

Review

Excellent car in everyway. I have been driving Sls since 1975 and this surpasses them all by a lot. It is a great looking car and handles just as well.Only thing missing is a sunglass holder.


Favorite Features

Looks and performance


Suggested Improvements

Needs sunglass holder
