V12 Autobahner: 1993 Mercedes-Benz 600SL

We can all agree that the collector car market has gone a bit bonkers in the past decade or so — see 80s Porsche 911 prices, for instance…and it seems that few cars were spared the crazy appreciation. So you’d expect that a V12 powered convertible two-door German built executive coupe would be part of that massive capital appreciation campaign…but the R129 generation Benz SL even when equipped with the M120 V12 is still shockingly cheap. Find this 1993 Mercedes-Benz 600SL offered for $7000 in the Northwest suburbs of Chicago, IL via craigslist. Tip from Rock On!
