It was when it was introduced in the 1950s and it still holds a special place in the hearts of Mercedes-Benz aficionados today. In the Mercedes-Benz lexicon SL literally means "lightweight sports". It was an apt description of the 300 SL that began the line, but by the time the 500 SL was launched in 1990 it was anything but light. A more apt description of the 500 SL perhaps might have been "luxury sports", but it was still an awesome two-seater sports car and ranked among the best in the world at the time of its launch. MODEL WATCH At the time of its launch the 500 SL was the first open top roadster released by Mercedes-Benz for 18 years and was an instant hit in Europe. The success was repeated here when it made these shores, and the first four years of supply was quickly spoken for as SL fans lined up for a slice of history. Australia only got the big-bore quad-cam V8 model, and it came loaded with everything from traction control to an electrically adjustable interior rear view mirror. It shared the top spot on the 'Benz totem pole with the S-Class sedan, but the S-Class could never approach the SL's blend of style, performance and status. The 500 SL was impressive from every angle, and like all great sports car it looked capable of going fast even when it was parked outside the caf� as its owner sipped a latte inside. It was to be Mercedes' sports car for the 1990s and as such couldn't date quickly. Look at its sleek, lithe lines today and it's clear that the 500 SL's designers met their brief perfectly. Almost 20 years after its launch, it still turns heads like few cars can. The 500 SL was a complex car. As the Mercedes-Benz flag-bearer it pushed the boundaries of contemporary automotive engineering and packed the very latest technology available at the time. It came equipped with a clever power folding roof, an automatic rollover bar that sprung into place when it seemed you were about to turn turtle, there was traction control to keep the wheels from spinning, and the seats boasted automatically adjusting seat belts. The 500 SL was a surprisingly big car, a message that came through loud and clear when it was driven over a weighbridge. It was longer, wider and taller than its predecessor, and weighed in at a whopping 1770 kg. The suspension was fully independent with struts at the front and a five-link system at the rear; the brakes were disc front and rear with ABS keeping a watchful eye on them to prevent lockup, and the steering was power-assisted. Under the elegant bonnet lay a fuel-injected double overhead camshaft 5.0-litre V8 that put out 240 kW at 5500 revs along with 450 Nm at 4000 revs. The V8 was linked to a four-speed automatic transmission; Mercedes didn't offer the buyers of its premier sports car the choice of a manual gearbox. Despite its considerable mass the 500 SL still packed plenty of performance. When the taps were opened to their maximum the 500 SL required a little over six seconds to reach 100 km/h, but it really came into its own on the open road where it would run all day at its electronically-limited top speed of 250 km/h. It also had impressive road manners. It was sure-footed with big low profile tyres on 16-inch alloys, rode comfortably an For additional vehicle pictures and to see a free vehicle Carfax please visit our site at http://a7autosales.com We also offer you the ability to submit a secure credit app for financing on any of our 2002 and later cars.
