Spotted: Mercedez Benz SL65

I was driving the other day and came across this. I had to stop to take a quick picture because an rarely see any of the Mercedes 65 cars on the road. Normally, I wouldnt look twice at a 500SL, SL55, or SL600 but this was something special. These are known to be very capable and reliable cars and in the used car market they are becoming more affordable for a convertible hardtop roadster. I didnt know too much about these other than they were the flagship model of the SL Class. They are special but look almost identical to the lower models that it is easy to not pay attention.

Mercedes has been known to set the benchmark of luxury and performance by featuring all their best features/ options/ and most powerful engines into their flag ship cars. I decided to do some research on the SL65 and it is truly an impressive machine. The entry level car was the SL500 which had a starting price of $91,300 USD. The SL65 was priced at a whopping $182,100 USD (base price) in 2005! That puts these cars in supercar territory.

SL500: $91,300 Base
SL55: $123,300 Base
SL600: $129,400 Base
SL65: $182,100 Base

What is interesting is that the SL600 has a 0-60 of 3.6 seconds(0.2 faster) but the more powerful SL65 has a 0-60 time of 3.8 seconds. It turns out the SL65 doesnt have enough traction to handle the horsepower adequately. Perhaps a set of

Fantasy Junction has this amazing BMW M1 for sale.   I cant believe these are 500k cars now.  I remember seeing a white M1 at Vasek Polak dealership in Hermosa Beach.   BMW made these cars known internally as E26 from 1978 to 1981.   This is BMW’s first mid-engined car to be mass produced.

These cars were all hand made and in 4 years only 457 cars were built by the motorsports division as a homologation special for racing.   Twenty of those cars are race versions.

These cars seem to be coming out fo the woodwork.   There was a great restoration candidate 5 months ago in silver that sold for $187,000.

The series II is the better looking design in my opinion with the single headlights.    This is Ferraris first production 2+2 model.   This is the ssame chassis used on the legendary 250 GT LWB Tour de France cars but the engine was moved forward by 8 inches.     The front and rear track were increased and the rear section of the roof was
