Overall:

The feature are excellent for the year it was made. I think it is a fair to good value. I considered it an icon of the date. Was one of the fastest cars of Mercedes in that epoch. Compared with other Mercedes of the same year V12, BMW M6 and Corvette ZR1.

Overall:

Feels like what I would call a classic sports car. Heavy (substantial might be a better word) but ready to go if you touch that pedal. It definitely feels like it has a nice sturdy expensive build quality behind it. Can have issues with the hydraulic tops and the ABC suspension, but just get it checked out. The less miles the better on these if you are trying to avoid costly repair for a while. Then again, the service history is really what matters. A great ride that is worth it for the right person.

There are just too many variables to give any car a 5 star status. In terms of comparison, a Porsche Boxter, a BMW Z4 come to mind.

This model and year of the SL500 is great. It has features that did not come out until 2010 on most other vehicles. The car has massive power and it is a very classy car. The bidy style still looks very new and still turns heads.

Don’t know enough yet to give it a 5 star. Will say drives like a big car, smooth and tight. I will say lots of amenities the can fail, they over engineered it for sure. That said parts seem to have come down and nothing breaks the bank but could nickel and dime quickly. Overall fantastic car so far, find a clean one. Jump on it.

The carfax said no reported accidents. Clearly the right front fendor had been painted and also the rear end had been hit. tail lights and trunk lid had huge gaps in it and not square.

A nice cruiser. Absolutely love the hard convertible top. However, with the classic German (over)engineering, repairs can get expensive pretty quick.

I’ve previously owned two SL 500 convertibles prior to this purchase. I love the body style and performance and prefer the look of a hardtop convertible.
