1990 Mercedes-Benz 500-Class

Mercedes-Benz kicked off the 1990s on a high note with the 500-Class, consisting of the 500SL roadster. Drawing on the SL's storied history, the '90 500SL was aerodynamically streamlined and sportier than ever. Improvements also were made to the car's stability at high speeds -- something both noticeable and important in a vehicle of this pedigree.

While the car's design was certainly noteworthy, the real story was under the hood, where a powerful 5.0-liter, 322-hp V8 was coupled with a 4-speed automatic, resulting in an enviable powerplant. Standard equipment included leather seats, power windows, power door locks, air conditioning, and airbags for the driver and passenger. In the event of a roll-over accident, a pop-up roll bar was automatically deployed to protect the occupants.

Other features of the car included a power convertible cloth roof, a hardtop roof, automatic climate control, anti-lock braking system, leather bucket seats, power heated mirrors, power tilt and telescopic steering wheel, alloy wheels, and much more.
