Our team was at the USS car auctions here in Japan today and spotted this rare beast and what an example it is. The car is a 1997 Mercedes Benz SL600 6.0 AMG, the model that topped AMG offerings in the early 90s, powered by the AMG tuned 389 Hp 6.0 V12 Engine. Or though not as rare as the very hard to come by Mercedes Benz SL73 (85 Units produced, 525 bhp (391 kW)) or the extremely hard to find Mercedes Benz SL55, it is still a very hard car to come by in this condition and bound to become a Classic Car of the future and a great investment too.
It is important to note that Mercedes Benz only produced around 300 Units of SL Series AMG Tuned cars before 2002, so this car is RARE. Most of the Mercedes Benz AMGs produced through the 90s were the E Class and C Class variety including and not limited to the C36, C43 and the earlier 90s models like the 190E AMG and the E60 AMG.
Of particular note with this unit is the excellent condition – here are the details from the Auction Sheet included
