For 1999, the SL500 is powered by a new 5.0-liter version of the
new-generation 4.3-liter V8. Underneath the classic Mercedes
Diamond Silver Metallic bonnet is a single overhead-cam engine that
uses the Mercedes-Benz twin-spark, 3-valve-per-cylinder technology
that reduces start-up emissions with no loss of horsepower. As a
result, the V-8 produces a peak output of 302 horsepower at 5600
rpm and a torque plateau of 339 foot-pounds from 2700 rpm to 4250
rpm. It makes the SL500 more responsive across the board and, per
manufacturer's tests, significantly reduces the 0-60 mph
acceleration to 6.1 seconds. It's cleaner too, certified as a
California Low Emissions Vehicle and, according to Mercedes, is
'performing at Ultra Low Emissions Vehicle levels.' One can indulge

consumption. It can be seen in greater detail including 100+ HD
