Offered from 1990 to 2002, the R129 Mercedes-Benz SL is an increasingly desirable car, hailing from a period when Mercedes-Benz was still known for over-engineering and top-notch build quality. This particular example is a range-topping SL600, which is powered by a mighty V12 that makes nearly 400 horsepower. At a cost of over $120,000 new, the V12-powered SL600 came standard with cutting-edge features. Power comes from an "M120" 48V 6.0-liter V12, rated at 389 horsepower and 420 lb-ft of torque. Output is sent to the rear wheels via a 5-speed automatic transmission.
Everything on this car works and the car is fully serviced, sorted and reliable.
In the practicality department, it’s strictly a 2-seater with good storage space behind the seats and a good-sized trunk that can fit two sets of golf clubs. There is a hardtop available—ask me if you would like it fitted before your trip—otherwise you’ll simply have the power soft top. If you are coming from out-of-town and toting lots of bags but still want to take this for a road trip, don't fret! You are welcome to stow your excess bags with me for no charge if that works with your itinerary!
While this car is well-maintained and in excellent condition, it is still over 20 years old. I ask that you drive this car reasonably and do not abuse it. Please be understanding if it’s not as flawless, quiet and tight as a new car.
FOR EVENT RENTALS ONLY:
Price assumes one full day (12 hours) including a driver with the car at your location (assumes up to 25-mile distance from cars' location). Please contact me. The rental price may vary due to the driving distance, setting, amount of time you need the vehicle, and amount of time you need the driver. In some circumstances for a very short, very close booking, the price can go down. For a booking in the desert (very dusty) 100 miles away, the price may have to increase somewhat.
