If you search for a car that can hold its own, when parked next to a Porsche 911 Cabrio, don't look any further. Because the SL R230 is regarded by many as the best looking SL that has left Stuttgart after the famous SL Gullwing. On top it is immense fun to drive, with powerful V8s and V12s to match the looks. Like the drive-train they are almost bullet-proof. Early cars suffered from quality problems that could spoil the fun factor somewhat. But all in all the R230 plays its GT role rather well, even with six-cylinder engines. And the AMG versions are true sports cars. This book with comprehensive buyer's guide can help you to find the right one, if the R230 interests you. It was already published as e-book in 2012 and has been completely revised in Nov.2015. The book explains the VIN and data card in great detail, discusses the SBC, ABC systems and looks at potential problems with the vario-roof. Superb photography and an enjoyable test-drive in the splendid SL65 AMG are other highlights. It ends with a detailed list of the cars' technical specifications and annual production history of each model.
