Mercedes-Benz SL 500 (R 129) bought by my husband - What is the evaluation of riding taste, engine, running?

My brother-in-law bought Panamera ...

The other day, I wrote a blog saying "My brother-in-law may buy Panamera Turismo one day", but after all the brother-in-law brother seems not to buy Panamera Turismo. Sorry ... (-_-)

By the way, the other day my husband went to Porsche dealer on the matter of car insurance, I saw Panamera Turismo, but he seems to have to sit across the rear seat console,That is not a 5-seat rider but a 4.5-seater ride.It was said.

Certainly, if you think that five people will ride in Porsche, Caien or Makan would be better, and Panamera should be able to sit comfortably with four people.

Well, the other day my husband bought the Mercedes Benz SL 500, but in 1997 I made it a classic car. At that time, the displacement of 5000 cc in 1997 seems to be tremendous in many ways. Below, I will show my husband's opinion.

1) ride comfort

You can ride without going into battle mode like Porsche. Always relax. It feels comfortable to run slowly, on endless roads. Porsche feels good, but more fun than that but win.

2) Handling

There is much play around the neutral position of the steering wheel, but it turns well from a certain angle of cut. It is comfortable because it turns on the on-the-rail without increasing the turn on ordinary curves and the like.

3) Engine

Engine is a practical engine with sufficient power to make it necessary in any speed range. There is no fun to rotate compared to Porsche. Also, if you have a 5L V8 at the front, I do not feel it has a bad turning point.

4) High speed stability

High speed stability is high.

5) Brake

The brake is sweet. Scared compared to Porsche.

6) Riding taste

Riding taste of Porsche is so-called Katadeno of Kazuto. SL is a delicious Sanuki Udon with Koshi.

7) AT

AUTOMA is smooth. Smooth town ride with many stops and go.It may be easier to ride than PDK. I will gradually restore from now and bring it closer to the new car, so the impression may change again at that time.

And that. By the way, fuel economy seems to be around 5 km / l to 6 km / l.

SL is a two-seater so if you do not leave children to nursery school, I can not ride, so I'm likely to drive first, but if I get warm it would like to open the roof and want to ride.(By the way, it takes two people to open the roof manually w)

That was the impression of Mercedes-Benz SL 500 bought by my husband.
