1994 Mercedes Benz 600 SL
The Mercedes-Benz SL-Class is a grand touring car that has been manufactured by Mercedes Benz since 1954. The designation SL derives from the German Sportlich-Leicht, which translates to lightweight sport. With unlimited speed limits prevalent in Europe, individuals who owned such cars could quickly travel from point A to point B, without the inconvenience of sitting in an airport, then renting a car upon arrival at your destination. This is the true definition of grand touring, meaning traveling in luxury and style at high speed.
This 1994 Mercedes Benz 600 SL V12 convertible has 83,120 original miles. The car is in overall very good condition, with all the amenities working, and intact. The car is capable of cruising all day, while keeping you in luxurious comfort. As one would expect, many conveniences are standard, and included on the option list of this car. An in new condition matching hard top comes with this car as well. Luxury and Mercedes Benz reliability sum it up best.
Beautiful blemish and ding free white gloss over light grey paint cover the exterior. This is highlighted by black and grey pin striping, and a like new convertible top. Windshield glass, and plastic rear within convertible top, are clear and scratch free. A deep blue canvas top is in original condition and can be electrically lowered and raised with the touch of a button. Chrome plated alloy wheels hold 16 inch almost new tires all around. Grille area has no marks, and all smoked chrome accents are in mint condition.
Plush stitched leather bucket seats have all electronic controls to perfect your driving position for those long trips. Matching navy blue thick pile carpeting which is in very good condition lines the interior floor, and foot board areas, as well as the rear interior compartment. Exotic wood lacquered burl lines the center console and accent the door liners. Gauges are all analog, excepting the mileage display which is digital. Control buttons for interior climate control, lighting, seating position, convertible top and window up/down operation, and many more, are enough to keep even a 757 pilot occupied.
The 376hp fuel injected V-12 6.0 Liter engine will quietly whisk you down the Autobahn or Interstate, effortlessly. An automatic 5-speed transmission has several cruise options for gas saving or performance.
When it comes to a V-12, the smoothness, and power pulses (typically 3 cylinders at any given time on a power stroke) make it the preferred engine for an ultra-luxury sports car. If you are looking for affordable uber performance, and over the top extras, this well-preserved example deserves a look. Stop in and take a gander at a minty example of how the “other half” traveled in style, still viable to today's standards, but at “your half” pricing.
