Ok, let's put the stars of the category such as the SL 300 Gull Wings, the SL 190, and the SL Pagoda, to focus on what I think to become a future classic, the SL models from the late 80's to nowadays.
The current SL is very nice looking, but too recent to be a bargain.
The current one: Here are the bargains:
A SL from 1993:
Another from 1998 ( SL 70 AMG ), credit picture: Sothebys.
And the generation which came just after:
In fact I am hesitating between a model from the 90's and the one from the early 2000's.
The character is incredible, the engines are very good, with a 8 Cylinder ( 500 ) or 6 Cylinder ( 300 / 320 for the versions from the 80's / 90's, 350 for the version from the early 2000's ).
And the pleasure / price ratio is excellent.
Without forgetting that I am seriously thinking they are becoming pure classics.
What do you think?
