Slip inside the Mercedes Benz SL600 and your breath will be taken from you. Stunningly designed and built, the SL600 is one of the world’s most luxurious and fast coupes.
Try the Mercedes-Benz SL600 out on the open road and the whopping twin-turbocharged 5.5 litre 12-cylinder engine surges forward with immense power. The world’s best selling V12 – features twin turbochargers, an air/water intercooler, three valves per cylinder, twin-spark AC ignition, a diecast aluminium crankcase and sump, diecast magnesium cylinder-head covers and hollow camshafts. It gives the SL600 a power-to-weight ratio of 0.71kg/kW. Quiet and totally balanced on the road, the very responsive engine boasts a massive 380 kW of power and a very flexible 830 Nm of torque! Meshed to this powerhouse is a 5-speed automatic adaptive transmission that when you give the pedal a decisive squirt, makes you feel like the vehicle should actually have wings.
With this amount of get up and go (0-100km/h in just 4.5 seconds), the superb dynamic safety features harness the vehicle in with astounding ease. Features like the Automatic Stability Programme, Traction Control, and radar-based cruise control help you stay safely in touch with the road ahead at lightning quick speeds, if you so desire.
The Mercedes Benz SL600 is not all muscle. The exterior has some of the most beautiful lines in the motoring industry, while the interior is one of the most comfortable and luxurious. True to the great German marque’s reputation, the SL600 has all the bells and whistles. The Nappa leather 12-way power heated and ventilated front seats; the multifunctional steering wheel that has controls for the Bose audio system, COMAND display system and the optional phone system; the dual zone climate control; multifunctional navigation system; TV; wood/leather gearknob and tilt/telescoping steering wheel; and multi-contour front seats make the car superbly impressive. There is also a removable hardtop that, with the push of a button, takes 16 seconds for the hardtop to fold down inside the boot – and the boot size is hardly compromised either.
With all this power and comfort, you might forget that Mercedes-Benz is also big on safety. With dual stage front airbags as well as side door airbags, ABS brakes, traction control, Distronic cruise control and an automatic roll bar on offer, you will feel very safe and secure.
