It will never be a classic car. Next year will MB start to produse cars with rag top again. Many problems with suspension and the electrical systems. But its funny and god to drive. Older Sl have much better quality. Best regards from Norway.

Over The Top — This cars stunning looks are only surpassed by it's awesome, raw, pavement-ripping power. At 138 MPH it felt rock-steady and felt like I was doing 80!

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

Pros: Beautiful to look at.  Wicked fast.  Handles like a race car.  More fun to drive than any car I've ever driven

Cons: I can't afford two of the,
