Consider Classic Car Status — Beautifully designed and engineered car. The sparkling Burgundy metallic paint against the stunning creme leather interior will catch the attention, garaged all the time. No sun spots or sun damage anywhere. Both tops are in excellent original shape. Dark creme color soft top was special ordered from the first owner.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: Best German designed SL made with the most powerful 5.6 litre V-8 engine that goes down the highway with immense speed.

Cons: Non.

Drives Like A Boat — Lasts forever if taken into care, 210,000miles on the same engine, Transmission rough, 2yr. old paint job. Tan Leather interior with red oak finish, heated seats, 4 door power windows, power locks, radio with tape player, 300hp, 5.6 liter V8 engine. 13mpg city, 15mpg highway, handles like a boat, driver side airbag...Firs year standard, ABS break system, model was used a a VIP transport car...came with the option of armor planting. Entirely made of steel.

Pros: Fun to drive, fast 0-60 <8 sec, head turner when in good shape

Cons: low mpg...gas guzzler, old..no cd player/hard to find replacement parts, ABS system broken, heavy car

Well That Is One Good Looking Car. With A V8 It's Even Better — One of the best looking car ever. A car of style and elegance. Cruise at 130 /140 effortlessly. Bit noisy with the wind though ! Amazing technology on board for a car of that age. Cheap enough to buy and own but make sure you put the right price to buy one and crawl underneath before to see what it looks like from below as surprise can occur. With the right brakes and suspension, you have a very fun and gorgeous car to drive. 6 cylinders versions would probably spoil a lot of the fun (280/300).

Pros: Amazing Look 30 years after its first release. V8. Sound. Head turning car. Going for 18 holes on a sunny sunday morning with this car is just what you want.

Cons: Electrics and air pump system not very reliable. Hassle for the Hard Top.  Feels a bit heavy . Suspension are not exactly to today's standards. Seats. Can rust. Not really waterproof.

A Perfect Vintage Mercedes — Everything a car needs, it has got the looks, the class, the engine and the style. Even though its way older than 20 years it is a marvelous drive, very comfortable and everything one could once upon a time expect from a Mercedes - legendary build quality!

Pros: Stunning, smooth straight-6 engine, very comfortable

Cons: Not necessarily an everyday car - even if it could do it!
