  1. Re: I saw one of these

    haha I went to a private school and nice ass cars were an everyday thing. My school was like a carshow every day. There was a red SL600 with a tan top. They are not that common cause they are about 120K so its a bit pricey
     
  2. Re: I saw one of these

    They're not a modified car. They are right from the factory. Yes, they're more rare than the SL500s because of their price, but I wouldn't call them rare. A '55 300SL Gullwing is rare. I wouldn't say that you're lucky because you saw one. I see one probably every couple of days. But I'm sure it made your day though, didn't it?<!-- Signature -->

  4. to G20

    hey G20 if you see one everyday theres probly no doubt that you live in Cal. up here in the northwest I've only seen about five but I have been in my uncles. My dad drove it, trust me if I had 120 grand I would buy it.

  8. Re: I saw one of these

    well the SL600 is the rarest, its V12 makes it exclusive, and expensive. some ppl that still have the money would prefer a V8... still a very very good car <IMG SRC="http://www.supercars.net/servlets/cMsg/html/emoticons/smile.gif"><!-- Signature -->

  10. Re: I saw one of these

    i saw onr of these yesterday, and it was the first one i'd ever seen, and i've seen some pretty nice cars, so yeah, they're pretty rare
     
  11. Re: I saw one of these

    I see one every day at work. It has a sport exhaust and diffrent rims.
    I also see a Porsche C4S and a Maserati Spyder every now and then at work too.

    The great thing about the SL600 is that its an everyday driveable vehicle - that also has the same performance as a low-end supercar (is that an oxymoron or what) - and can still take its top down.

    I'm in the process of buying one myself - I have a 1981 380SL which I love - but really want something fast and low. I love the sound of the V12. I only drive 3000 to 4000 miles a year in the 380SL and the 600SL would continue to be a second vehicle - I just hope I can keep the maintenance costs low...!!!!

    Any idea how to disengage the electronically limited top end ? I'd love to know how fast it really goes - but I guess I'd be scared at 150mph !!!!! The one I'm getting is with a Renntech package - but not the full modded engine. Those HAVE to be rare.

    By the way - at Amelia the other week, I saw a 2004 Brabus SL600 - VERY hot. Very expensive - close to $200k !
