Very powerful, classic Mercedes convertible with rock solid 5.0L engine and indestructible transmission.


The price you pay for all that power (5.0L V8 and ~315bhp) is gas economy, but it still gets about 22MPG for me on the highway.


One Of Merecedes Best Modern Convertibles. — For ten years (since 2004) this has been my summer joy. The 1998 SL500 is a classic Mercedes luxury convertible, comfortable and reliable enough for a summer cross-country expedition. What a joy to jaunt through the mountains in fall weather with the top down and the seat heaters on!

Amazing — My favorite. Runs great, Shifts great, Very high quality. Performance deserves an A+ rating. Visors have lights, Very rich man car. Beautiful German leather interior, clear Bose stereo.Dash is the most accurate of all time,Amazing oil pressure, OK gas mileage, takes alot of Coolant, but who cares!

Sweet Little Run-a-bout... Hard Top, Soft Top Or Roadster By oldtimer37

Like having three cars in one. What's the weather? Pick a configuration and you are ready to roll. Nice, stiff driver. No slack in anything. My only complaint is the seat does't go back far enoug... Read More

Classic Benz By wkinley66

Great Car For The Price By sfdjdave

I had possession of this car for around a month. Driving the car was great. It had that luxury ride in a sport coupe. I guess that's why it cost $120K when it was new back in 1995! The only bad th... Read More
