Beneath the Mercedes-Benz 600 SL’s refined lines lies a robust 48-valve 6.0-liter V12. Introduced as the flagship variant of the Mercedes R129 SL-Class Roadster, the 600SL also features a self-leveling suspension system with active dampers. Finished in Signal Red over a black leather interior, this example was initially acquired by a collector through Mercedes-Benz’s European delivery program and has been meticulously maintained through the years. Accompanied by extensive service records, it is now being offered for auction by its seller out of New York with approximately 24k miles on the odometer.
This Roadster is finished in Signal Red (568), contrasted with a black convertible soft top. Details include V12 emblems, fender vents, and halogen headlamps and fog lamps. The 8-hole light alloy wheels are mounted with Michelin Pilot Sport tires with date codes from 2019. The seller describes this example to be in excellent overall condition, detailed images are provided in the gallery along with paint meter readings and a clean CARFAX report.
The interior is appointed with luxurious black leather (271) upholstery. Optional orthopedic front seatbacks are equipped while standard equipment includes a wind deflector between the headrests, a Becker radio, the High-Performance Sound System, and electrically adjustable front seats, steering column, and mirrors with memory.
The 600SL equips a 6.0-liter quad-cam V12 engine generating up to 389 HP and 421 lb.-ft of torque to the rear wheels through a 4-speed automatic transmission. Factory performance features include self-leveling suspension with the Adaptive Damping System (ADS) and Acceleration Skid Control (ASR). Aftermarket factory-correct brake dust shields have been added to the front wheels.
