A fine car has finite characteristics: a powerful engine, striking lines, an inviting interior.
Imagine what it’s like to bob through the canals of Venice and drink in the sights, sounds, and smells of the city in a floating Mercedes-Benz.
A gentle push on the 2003 Mercedes-Benz SL500’s accelerator gets the 5-liter, 302-hp engine growling and catapults the car up to speed.
New and Improved
I remember sliding Lee Morgan’s The Sidewinder into the 2003 Mercedes-Benz SL500’s CD player and hearing the first blasts of his trumpet playing through the eight-speaker Bose system.
Admittedly, the 2002 Mercedes-Benz SL500 and SL600 have aged more gracefully than any other automobile designed toward the end of the 1980s.
