The R230 generation of Mercedes-Benz SL Class was introduced at the 2001 Frankfurt Motor Show and 2001 Bologna Motor Show, replacing the R129. The R230 underwent revisions in 2006 and 2008, and was superseded by the new SL Class R231 in 2011. The SL600 is the highest output version of the non AMG SL Class models. It uses a V12 engine which produced 493bhp, thus making it a very rapid luxury sports car with 60mph achieved in just 3.6 seconds when tested by Car and Driver despite the factory stating the figure at more modest 4.7!
