Now take one of the finest cars that ever carried the 3-pointed star, add super low mileage and near-new condition to the aforementioned V12 engine, and you have a winner!

The 1996 Mercedes-Benz SL600 V12 Roadster prominently displayed here, is a prime example of the finest of all R129 cars made. Arguably, it's the last Mercedes SL worth owning in the long term, given that all its successors are sealed black boxes on wheels that require diagnostics equipment worth as much as a biplane.

Motorvation comes from the 6.0 liter, 48-valve DOHC V12 M120 engine, delivering a staggering 390 horsepower with an ease that turns any Ferrari red with envy.

Never been apart, this star cruiser's body is as straight as an arrow, with gaps and shut lines as superb as those of surgical equipment.

The factory original jet black paint is mile deep and as magnificent as that of a Steinway concert piano. You'd have to use a magnifying glass to detect a micro-sized rock chip in very isolated places.

More to come . . . .
