1997 Mercedes SL74!
Mercedes SL74, 7.4 Liter V12 Sport. 17,997 miles (01/2021), collector owned, truly a flawless car, flawless history, museum stored since 06. Bulletproof paperwork, #1 with a bullet condition. Noted as possibly the lowest mile and finest surviving example of an SL74 by the creators themselves. Ok, if you are not 100% familiar with Mercedes, you are probably asking yourself what the heck is this thing. Who was the wise guy that threw a spoiler and emblems on the back? If you struck it rich in the 90s, this would be one of the cars you may have sought out. That is what the first owner of this car did and money was no object as you are about to see. From his home in Hawaii, to his building in Vegas this car was air cargo’d to its destinations for the first few years of its life. To put it simple, this is a true supercar owned by super wealthy, then sold off for the next fling of whatever that may have been. Spending a whopping $200,000.00+, as this example here, would get you the king of all Mercedes cars to the year date of this car, 1997. What this car is, is a top optioned SL600 Sport with a 130K price tag that was upgraded by the Renntech Company (US AMG) to be a 575HP monster capable of acceleration, top speed, handling, endurance and stopping power only someone capable and willing to part with 200K+ was lucky enough to experience. This car was quoted in many tests as probably the most perfect car built given money no object. That little upgrade for perfection was $64,360.00.00 on top of the $130K price done when the car was new! That of course does not include tax, transportation or all the other stuff on top. I obtained this car from through a connection at a mega buck dealer kind of representing the owner, I made the very handsome offer to get it, and its been mine since 2009. It has been put away in my collection since 2009 and is one of the top pieces I have. It gets about 15-50 miles a year, it is maintained in my car collection to the highest degree.
