Sophisticated Supercar
By Mike on


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.

Best Features

Retractable hardtop provides topless enjoyment with coupe security. Effortless rocket sled accelleration. Outstanding brakes and excellent handling, although not as agile as Porsche 911.

Worst Features

COMMAND is useless. Go all aluminum and lose 500 lbs.
