Performance gets a beautiful make-over. A one of a kind automobile offering the classic lines of a Grand 600 Mercedes with the blistering speed and performance of an SL600 V12.
This Grand Mercedes SL600 Silver Arrow is the very picture of confidence and poise. Founded on a remarkably rigid structure - especially for a convertible - this Silver Arrow's fully independent suspension precisely controls each wheel for a fluid ride and cornering excellence. Damper struts up front and Mercedes patented 5-arm multilink design in the rear employ separate coil springs and gas-pressurized shocks for highly consistent response.
The amazing Electronic Stability Program (ESP) monitors your steering and braking inputs and detects the onset of plowing or fishtailing. The system then brakes individual wheels and/or reduces engine power to help restore your intended course. The Antilock Braking System is designed to help you maintain command over steering during heavy braking, pumping the brakes up to 30 times per second if it senses impending wheel lockup. And Brake Assist, a Mercedes-Benz innovation, detects emergency braking from how you hit the brake pedal. By applying all available braking boost to help overcome the natural human tendancy not to brake hard enough, soon enough, it can potentially shorten a panic stop. And let you get back to the sheer joy of driving.
This SL600 offers 6.0 liters, 12 cylinders, 48 valves, 389 horses and 420 lb-ft torque. They add up to a blazing 5.9-second zero-to-60, and a 14.3-second quarter-mile. Then there's the auto's amazing Adaptive Damping System. ADS picks one of four damping profiles for every single wheel movement to optimize cornering and ride comfort. The system also offers automatic body lowering at freeway speeds, driver-selectable ride height and a choice of sport and comfort damping modes.
SL600 occupants luxuriate in liquid-soft hand-selected Nappa leather seating, amid the exclusive leather-trimmed dash, doors and standard hardtop trim. The Bose sound system with 6-disc CD changer features voice control.
