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.

I’m a product of the 1980’s. I have always loved the AMG Hammers. This video by Chris Harris gives an amazing commentary on what these cars were like to drive. The car is this video is a wide body version and a 6.0 Liter. It is believed that only 12 AMG 6.0 Wide body coupes were built. They produced 375 horsepower and were beautiful and sophisticated coupes. One was for sale in the Netherlands for 149,500 Euros or $164,000 US Dollars. These cars have more than doubled in value over the last 5 years. These cars have always been very elusive.
