The 3.8 liter SOHC V8 under the hood feels quite energetic around town and as a German-bred 2-seater, obviously it was built for high-speed cruising, so it's effortless in almost everything it does. With only 105,000 miles on it, this one is barely broken in, so it starts quickly, idles smoothly,. The engine bay is completely original and stock, with the exception of normal maintenance items, but they were careful to retain things like the original hose clamps whenever something was replaced. Factory finishes, decals, and markings all remain 100% intact and it all works like it should.
The 4-speed automatic overdrive transmission was a relatively recent addition to the spec sheet when this SL were built, but it gives this convertible impossibly long legs when combined with the 2.65 rear gears. At speed on the highway, the engine just loafs along at about 1200 RPM, barely whispering and pulling down surprisingly good fuel economy at the same time.
