The Mercedes-Benz SL-Class is a classic coupe and roadster and has historical origins dating back to the 1950s. Forget the BMW 6-Series, the SL-Class has it beaten in all departments: looks, luxury, and performance. It comes with a standard 5.5 liter V8 with 382 horsepower. There's an array of optional V12 engines to choose from as well, but the most powerful is the 661 horsepower twin-turbo V-12 that powers the SL65 AMG Black Series edition.
Other features include Active Body Control, electronic brakes, and a DVD navigation unit. A 2010 exterior refresh updates the car with the new and more handsome design theme. It now has some fresh competition with the new Ferrari California. Sounds good? Then get ready to pony up at least $99,300 for the "base" SL550 and $299,000 for the mind-blowing SL65 AMG Black Series.
