Most Fun For Your Buck

1992 Mercedes-Benz 500-Class 500SL 2dr Convertible


I recently bought myself a second hand
silver-grey '92 500SL Mercedes-Benz as
my 'summer vehicle'. I already was a
Mercedes fan (reliability) for some
years, and since we have a '89 560SL in
the family I knew it was a fun vehicle.
Well, it sure is! I've been driving it
for a couple of months now and I'm very,
very impressed with the comfort it
provides, especially for a (now) 11-year
old car. Being 11 years old I reckon I
will have some expenses to keep the car
in optimum condition, but in contrast,
the price of purchase was one-fifth of
the original sticker price.

Best Features

The 5 liter - 8 cylinder - 320 HP engine combined with the way the auto-gear-shift is programmed makes for a great ride. I love the 'large displacement' feeling the car provides (in contrast with e.g. Porsche's or Ferrari's nervousness).

Worst Features

I reckon all the things I'd like to see improved have been improved already in the new SL500 model. But for now my '92 model provides everything I could wish for (and afford).
