1993 Mercedes-Benz SL600


If the catchphrase you live by is “they don’t make them like they used to,” and you want a drop-top two-door that’s big, plush, comfortable and a V12, there’s really nothing like the 1990s Mercedes-Benz SL600. They have a reputation for being extremely well built and overengineered, plus we say they also look pretty snazzy too, even after more than 20 years since the original launch.

Particularly because they were built to last, many are still around and in great shape, and if you treat them right they should last another 20 years easily.

Harry Metcalfe bought one for cruising in southern France, and for his requirements, there’s really no better car he could have picked.
