Mercedes Benz Sl350 Its965

While there might be many cars out there that would be considered a bargain in terms of their pricing, it would be difficult for them to match the elegance and luxury of the Mercedes Benz SL Class. In this road test I had the Mercedes Benz SL 350 with the 3.5 Litre V6 that produces 302 bhp. The car was smooth when you wanted it to be and would put you back in the seat when you hit the gas. Although it was a little too quiet for my taste every once in a while you would hear the gurgle of the exhaust when the top is down. Handles like a sports car but as comfortable as a daily driver should be!

For a moment you would sometimes forget you were driving a convertible, theres good noise cancellation and under cruising there would be very little noise coming in due to it being a convertible.

The SL is equipped Beautiful LED and BiXenon Intelligent Light Headlamps that look even better when you concentrate more on the details, and the amount of light output and quality is what you desire in all the cars that you drive. The rear lines on the tail lights clearly tell the driver behind you to stay away, and you would notice they’re a bit longer and meaner than the younger SLK.  [shashin type=”photo” id=”2904″ size=”medium” columns=”1″ order=”user” position=”center”]

The Exterior of the SL Series is one of those designs that you look at and look back on and notice that there’s a detail in there you haven’t already really seen. The one I reviewed had the AMG Sports package installed, making it even nicer to the eye.  There’s a rear wind deflector that reduced the amount of air that circulated around the driver which helps when driving a little faster with the top down. [shashin type=”photo” id=”2884″ size=”large” columns=”1″ order=”user” position=”center”] [shashin type=”photo” id=”2878,2902,2892,2887,2876,2871″ size=”medium” columns=”2″ order=”user” position=”center” crop=”y”]

The boot space is quite spacious (unfortunately I forgot to photograph it), but the nice thing about the SL is that you can collapse the hard top separator if you’re not thinking of opening the roof, and you would have a decent amount of luggage space. You also have a storage compartment behind the driver seat which can hold  a hand bag or small laptop bag.
