The 1992 Mercedes-Benz 500 SL (R129) Roadster may be the entry point of buyers into the SL range, but it was such a hot commodity back in its time for the rich and famous.

Good Deal or Bust: Is This $5,500 2004 Mercedes-Benz SL500 Worth It?

The 2004 Mercedes-Benz SL500 R230 is such a beautiful convertible with its elegant and sporty design matched with a powerful V8 engine.
