Comparing an SL to an SL is like comparing copper to gold. They are both metal but The 96 and newer SLs are also some of the most underrated performance cars ever. When the SL got the 5 speed automatic in , it got fast. Real fast at that, but were never hyped up as so and very underrated. It really is an engineering marvel making this V12 better than any other V12 to date from any manufacturer.

    Then to top it off, the R is one of the best, most rigid well handling, safe roadsters ever built. Throw out the fact it looks good as that is secondary to what the SL really is. Its quite a car combining the V12 in this roadster. This is my second SL I am now sold on these cars like no other car to date and will always have one in my stable.

    I like this car, not for its image but its engineering and performance. The fact it looks good too is not a bad thing but has nothing to do with what lies underneath its surface or my reasons for owning the car. Apparently I am not the only one attracted to this car. Many collectors and knowledgeable car people are snatching up what is considered by my automotive periodicals as the best value in the history of high end used cars with the SL I have seen guys that only buy tried and true American muscle cars start picking these up.

    That is a good sign for the future as this is one deserving car that deserves better than its typical first owner. Since the "got-to-have" crowd went after these new and when the next fad body came along, it caused these cars to be tossed aside at what should be criminal transactions at the Mercedes dealers. Mercedes should be ashamed, but no one put a gun to the customers head either. I guess PT Barnum had a handle on this group too, but what is left in a used one of these SLs is a way undervalued incredible car not matched by any other I have seen.

    Today these cars can be had from 20K to 50K depending on the year and condition. Well worth having over the non sport for the handling and different front and rear bumpers and kick panels plus other things. Do not be fooled by a "called" sport car because the wheels are on it. It is not the same. Make sure it is a sport if that is what you are after. The loss the first buyers took on these cars is sickening and gives the car a stigma of not being that great.

    Well I am here to tell you that stigma is dead wrong. If there ever was a free lunch on a car, the SL is as close as I have found. Reliability, well its the most reliable V12 car ever, and even more reliable than some very simple cars that are considered reliable. It makes the BMW V12 look like a joke in reliability and then a cartoon on power.

    I hate to say that as I am a big BMW fan. The BMW 12 is not even in the same solar system as this car. What is even better than this cars reliability is its endurance ability. These V12s were built to stand on in the true German autobahn manner. The new and smaller single cam turbo V12 in the 03 cars and newer are popping like a bag of microwave corn when put to the test. They are not the same. That motor needs two turbo chargers to do what this one does close without them and without the grief!

    As far as life, you can expect K miles out of the 6. What else can do that short of a semi truck engine? The S sedan will show you that too. Pretty darn rare at that. There are a claimed SLs built in The "Sport" is an option too and my example has all the options that were available with the exception of the panorama hard roof.

    I have the solid hard roof. Panorama is not good in hot places as it heats the car real bad due to the glass panel, so no big deal to me but nice to have otherwise. It has the chrome staggered AMG 5 spoke wheels which are very expensive. I have also put the correct Dunlop sport tires on the car less than miles ago when I took the original set off.
