1995 Mercedes-Benz SL-Class SL500 2dr Convertible


The looks this car gets are off the
charts, but they come at a hefty
price. I only drive my SL500 6 months a
year. Therein lies the problem; already
expensive cost of ownership,
exacerbated by spreading the costs over
only six months. That said, I still
keep it, and wait for the spring to
bring nice weather. The thrill of
hitting the accelerator on this 300+ HP
beast is beyond compare. Driving with
the top down on a nice day is one of
the finest auto experiences around.
Then, pulling into valet parking of a
crowded cafe or club is bound to stroke
the ego of any redblooded American male.

Best Features

300+ HP engine blows away all but the most serious performance cars on the road, and the lines of this car are gorgeous.

Worst Features

The tape deck is a waste. The storage space for the tapes is useless, and should be modified w/ aftermarket parts to hold cupholder or other useful storage. Though the power rearview mirror is nice, anyone driving the car immediately grabs it and attempts to move it by hand.
