At first glance, some might think of the Mercedes SL as a classic car hung with chrome, which a grey-haired gentleman in a polo shirt likes to drive cautiously at vintage car rallies. Not so in this case! This SL, with its darkened, evil looks, would look much better outside a nightclub or in a music video.

Completely blacked out, the SL not only looks massive, but really evil. Elegant and fine is different.

Not only is this SL unique, it appears to have been well cared for

The video included (below) explains the most important things about the R 231 SL series. The sleek Daimler had one thing in particular at its market launch: slimmed down. SL originally stood for “Sport-Leicht” – and before 2012 nothing was light on the luxurious Benz anymore.

First drive in the new SL

The sixth generation of the Mercedes SL is not necessarily for those who appreciate delicate elegance. The 2012 SL comes across as quite massive and already indicates its power when stationary. In the interior he knows how to convince with soft leather and comfortable seats. Some have felt as safe as in Abraham’s lap and didn’t want to get out at all.

This SL is also a luxury car with complex technology on board. The electrics don’t necessarily seem to be the chocolate side of beautiful Swabia. If you cross-read forum entries, it becomes clear that potential buyers should be particularly careful here. The same applies to the engine and transmission. The care that has gone into the powertrain should be apparent.
When making a specific offer, it should be checked exactly which modifications were carried out by whom and how professionally. This also relates primarily to the engine. The specified condition of the vehicle sounds attractive. But the machine has a few horsepower more than in the standard condition and a pretty heavy torque. At best, a professional should have been responsible for this.
