These were the last of the R 129 chassis , and several Special Editions really stand out. Classic design with soft top and a removable hard top standard.And a V/12 is a mans car. Non of this 2 liter turbo charged nonsense. The fat torque band available between 2 & 3 thousand RPM will rocket you past any one . Enough torque and horse power on demand in a bullet proof engine and a comfortable cockpit with every option known to man as standard equipment. Whats not to like?)

These, cars are truly examples of MB ” the best or nothing” philosophy.
Over engineered, rock solid,, every comfort & option came standard. As, did a top speed limited in US to 156 mph. Just the sound of a 12 cylinder puts the SL 600 at the top of my list.

No Cisitalia? Nothing for the car that defined the post-WWII sports coupe form? Nothing for the car that influenced all enclosed post-war sports cars? Nothing for the car that, for years, was the only automobile in the Museum of Modern Art? A case of Rodney Dangerfield, I tell ya. Short-sighted by the Petersen and by some very knowledgeable “curators.”

I now own a ’95 S Toyota Supra, “mildly” modified, ~700hp, and I would have this car on my list of best sports coupes.
