Timeless Roadster, Fun for Everyday
By Al_hiFi on


2001 Mercedes-Benz SL-Class SL500 2dr Convertible (5.0L 8cyl 5A)


This roadster is making presence on the road, parking lot or garage. Puts a smile on owners face every time is driven. Abundant performance, whisper quiet with the top down. It feels very safe to be in on the road even when surrounded by SUV's. Hardtop feature is extremely usefull when cold and it improves body flex. Sport package must to have since it makes this car to stand out of the crowd and it helps to keep the resale value. Reliability is far better than new R230. Everything in this car is overbuild for quality, but you pay the price in extra weight and extra $$. Great highway cruiser.

Best Features

AMG body styling with staggered wheels, Smooth broadband power, Voice activated audio and phone. Paint quality is amazing. Aluminum calipers and crossdrilled rotors can stop this monster on the dime.

Worst Features

It would be nice to bring the weight down to make it more tossable.
