A Classic Convertible with Timeless appeal.
"A classic version of the Merecedes Benz SL class. The body style did not change for almost 10 years. It has almost every feature you could want except for back up camera and bluetooth."
Interior

5.0

Upholstery is like new. Dash and trim is excellent
Exterior

4.0

Car has had a partial repaint. Looks great. Has had AMG cosmetic upgrades including custom 20" wheels and new tires. Not the greatest gas mileage, but it is not used as a daily driver.
Performance

4.0

Performs as a V-8 sports car should. Engine is in excellent condition and many components (fuel pump, alternator, AC compressor, suspension and retractable top motors) have been replaced. Regular oil changes every 2-3 miles with synthetic oil
Family

2.0

Not a family car. It is a second vehicle used for fun.
Cost

When this car was new the price tag was close to $100K. Mercedes Benz is not an inexpensive car to own and maintain, however, if properly cared for, all routine maintenance is performed and the car is not driven irresponsibly, they are worth the investment

Incredible handling, most fun on 4 wheels
"Perhaps one of the most over engineered cars ever built, also one of the most fun to drive! I’ve owned Porsche’s, Corvettes, about 100 other sports or special interest cars and trucks, and have always had an interest in Mercedes SL cars. I am delighted to own one, and look forward to driving it again soon."
