1997 Mercedes-Benz SL600

It is very clear to me that the death of the V12 is near. It was certainly inevitable, as outside of a few very select manufacturers it just isn’t in the cards anymore. What does that mean? Go buy a V12, of course! I guess I’m not alone in thinking this as prices of the somewhat more common V12 cars have started to creep up. A prime example is the R129. For a long time, these hovered in the teens, but now the very best ones are selling for strong money and the pack of average ones is starting to catch up.

This 1997 up for sale in Florida has an interesting story. It was not only offered once, but twice, and ended at a reasonable value. However, this seller seems to have other ideas.

By the looks of it, this is a fairly nice example. Yes, the offset on the wheels is a little wonky, but dialing in the tire size or just swapping the wheels all together will take care of that. But with that, you can’t ask the very top of the market and expect to get it. The car is priced at $10,500 overĀ to what it previously bid to, which isn’t the end all be all, but a pretty good point what as it is worth. I have to wonder if the color combo is holding this one back as well given it has a dark blue stop top that is paired with the two-tone Mushroom leather interior. When you have the little things like this, people that can afford to be picky will be. I do think this sells soon or later, but maybe not at the $38,500 the seller wants.

  1. It’s almost like he’s put the wheels on front to back and vice versa
