Gateway Classic Cars Houston Showroom is excited to present this powerful black 1998 Mercedes-Benz SL600. From 1993-2002, Mercedes-Benz produced just a little over 11,000 of these (former) supercars, which were typically priced close to $130K. Today, many buyers who remember wishing they could have one back then, are making their moves on these gorgeous V12-engined powerhouses. Still a potent powerplant, the 389HP V12, with its prodigious 420 LB-FT torque, can hustle these cars down the interstate at their 155 MPH "governed" limit for as long as the tank of fuel lasts, or traffic density allows. Safety was of paramount importance at Mercedes-Benz (but then it always is) in the design of these cars: in addition to the standard Supplemental Restraint System features (airbags, locking seatbelts, etc.), these R129 Benzes have an automatic roll bar that deploys automatically within .3 seconds in the event of a rollover, along with a seat design that incorporates 5-piece frames made from a magnesium alloy, which provides enhanced protection in side impacts. This SL600 is equipped to the hilt, with nearly every power option that could be added to a vehicle in 1998, including Power Anti-lock Disc Brakes at all 4 corners, Power Locks, Power Mirrors, Power Heated Seats, Power Steering, and Power Windows. It also has an AM/FM/Cassette head unit, along with CD Changer, Cruise Control, automatic HVAC climate control system, performance radial tires on aluminum wheels, tilt/telescoping steering column, and a Parchment leather interior (which looks virtually unused), and gorgeous wood trim. About the only thing that needs to be addressed is the hydraulic hardtop release: even though the hydraulic fluid is at the recommended level and the motors can be heard working, for some reason, the top isn't releasing...so, for now, it's a coupe; but with a little TLC, no doubt this glorious high-speed roadster can be brought back to 100% of its functionality! Regardless of operating mode (coupe or roadster), this is a very attractive car in great condition. Don't miss out on one of Mercedes' premier road cars of the 1990's. Give us a call or email our Houston showroom - we'll be happy to assist you in putting this in your collection!
