I drove one

Discussion in '1999 Mercedes-Benz SL600' started by GTSB ALLSTAR, Aug 9, 2002.

  1. My dad works for mercedes in arlington VA. he brought one home one night. this car is damn quick. its not that fast off the line (don't get me wrong here) as you would think because it has an insane amount of HP. Its cause of the rear end ratio, its mean't for autobahn crusing. once it got going the thing never stopped accelerating...

    0-60 mph in 5.5 seconds is pretty fast for a 4500lb car.<!-- Signature -->

    All Mercedes aren't that fast for acceleration. But after the beginning part, they will start to accelerate a hell lot faster.<!-- Signature -->

    I got to ride in one it was a 1997 but basically the same, my uncle owns a car dealership brought over and me and my dad went for a ride. well to make a short story shorter I felt like a king, handles great, convertable awsome, bose speakers, 25 MPH speed limit 80 MPH actual speed, hey no cop and what other time would my dad drive something like that.

    My uncle said on his 2 and half hour trip normally 4, he reached 140 and said felt like it was 80.
