A tale used to do the rounds in Germany, which in fact had it these cars always bought from pairs; an abundant industrialist would buy one for his mistress, after which in a fit of conscience purchase the second for his wife.
Regardless of the connotations, the SL Roadster is constantly on the sell. The relatively sedentary pace of the entry-level V6 is completely eclipsed through the awesome 500PS supercharged AMG variant.
The SL has traditionally been the proving ground for brand new technology, which latest generation continues that trend with electronic control for almost everything.
Despite being regarded as a ‘lady owner’ car with the connotations which are attached to that tag, SL is really a sharp and precise sports vehicle that provides enormous amounts of satisfaction driving. A true iconic car – for mistress or wife.
