    The new V12.

    97 SL600 with 19,533 miles when I picked it up in California.

    So what is the point of the hugely expensive SL600?

    Press your right foot down. To the backing of a mellow moan, the surroundings go into reverse and dots on the horizon zoom into focus. There is something special about a car that accelerates from 100 as fast as it accelerates to 100.

    When your pulling on Shelby GT500's you will know. Completely stock. I also have a Nitrous fed chevy, but these things are rockets. They are also getting really cheap.

    It is still Fun. When they just spent 75k plus an extra dealer bump of 25k. And I can Drop the Top.

    those are pimp. One of my buddies picked one up some time ago. I've been seeing them dropping in price too, was actually giving it some serious thought myself.

    398hp under rated. 420tq under rated. Factory stated numbers. Germans lie to decive. Like my 5.7 0-60 joke.

    Its not an sl70 amg or sl73 amg. SL600's 6.0 M120

    Same as a lil car called the Pagani Zonda.
