Wink My Mercedes SL500

Acquired her two weeks back. 5000cc engine; 302 BHP; Hard-top convertible; Red nappa leather interiors; Rear wheels 285/35 R18; Front 255/40 R18. Max speed done on Mumbai-Pune Expressway: 210kph, before needing to take the foot off the gas due to traffic ahead. Sweet car.

wow! It's beautiful and immaculately maintained!!! Congratulations Varaman. Love the red interiors in your car. But I'm not sure if I like those wheels. Just my opinion

Oddly enough, I found the rims to be particularly appealing when I bought her - probably because there is so much 'sameness' in the alloy wheels you see these days.

It is a V8 engine, not V12... the V12 is on the SL55AMG and the SL600

Thanks, mate! Will be careful, no worries. It's just that the car begs you to push her and the burble of the engine is just addicting... but your advice is well received

The SL55AMG has a 5.4 litre supercharged V8, not a V12.

Sweet looking car Varaman. Seems to be in pristine condition. How many kms on the odo when you bought her?

The SL55 AMG comes with a 5.5 litre Supercharged V8 By far one of the best cars I have driven. The SL600 has the V12 while the SL65 AMG gets a bi turbo version of the V12.

Thumbs up Neat!

Wow ! That one is absolutely drool-worthy.
The model is from which year?
Can you post a few closeup pics of the dash and the gizmos?

BTW, congrats !!
