Lot #22 - Virtually everything was standard equipment on the top-of-the line SL600, including an upgraded entertainment system that uses a large LCD screen and fiber-optic cables to connect it to the trunk-mounted CD changer. Both seats are heated and powered, of course, and use the elegantly simple door-mounted seat controls. Overhead there's both a power black canvas convertible top and a removable hardtop, which seals the coupe up as tightly as any luxury sedan. The silky 6.0 Liter V12 offers dual overhead cams and 48 valves, belting out 389hp. The SL600 uses a 5-speed automatic transmission, and with this much torque, extra gears are just superfluous. Like the engine, it makes seamless shifts when you're commuting, but snaps off rifle-precise upshifts when the hammer is down, and eagerly drops down two gears when you bury the throttle in the deep pile carpeting to rocket around slower traffic. The Sport model received gorgeous AMG alloy wheels wearing a set of staggered Dunlop SP Sport 8000 radials. The wheels are completely unmarked, with no curb rash or impact damage, and the tires are basically brand new. The Mineral Green was a very rare and unique color combination for 2000 models.
