The SL 500 is the V8 version of the sporty Mercedes in 2000 it carried a list of in excess of $82,000. Typical priceds with the optional package and the standard aluminum were approaching $100,000.

The 500 SL has hood leading down to a accented by the traditional large star. The styling was revised for New SLK-style mirrors, body-color handles and side molding, new a new rear valence and a new tailpipe all give the SL models a sportier


The SL500 as big from behind the wheel as it from outside. One sits low inside the cockpit. The dash is high and the hood stretches out it like a classic automobile the 1930s. The steering wheel is like most German and, though the steering is tilt-telescopically adjustable.

The interior of the 500 SL is with Nappa leather and trim standard on the SL500 year. The seats are teutonically Though the seatbacks are well the seat bottoms are rather in the Mercedes-Benz tradition.

The convertible top is but not padded, so it has little insulation on noise and heat. Pressing a switch on the console is all that’s to raise and lower the convertible It even unlatches itself the windshield header and hard before the tonneau rises for the top to into. An aluminum hardtop is standard equipment.

The trunk is small and the lift-over is high, but cubic inch is usable unlike many two-seaters, the SL has a area behind the seats for from picnic baskets to to overnight bags.


The engine starts instantly, a roar that quickly down to quiet idle. look for temperamental behavior this engine. Your maiden aunt could the SL500 around town. The horsepower engine proivides than ample power and reconfigured the exhaust for a throatier in 2000. However, don’t the rumble of a Z-28. The SL500 is than that. Full sounds better with the top because the wonderful exhaust comes through better the fabric filter.

The SL500 is powered by a 5.0-liter of the new-generation 4.3-liter V8 used in the hot and C43 models.
