FS: 1997 SL 600 Supercharged 600hp

Owned this car since 2003. Only has 17K miles. I drive it so little that it does not warrant keeping it. I am into Corvettes now and just sold my 07 Z06 and am saving for the new C7. I drove the car a few months ago and was on the freeway doing about 95 when a transmission line came loose and dumped all the trans fluid out of the transmission. It went into limp mode but it was too late to salvage the damage. It was in a shop for nearly 3 months in Riverside that specializes in Mercedes. He rebuilt the trans, put in a new TCU, fixed the passenger window switch, and put in a new voltage regulator. Total repairs were over $4880. Car needs someone that can tune it to reach it's potential of 600hp. It is scary how fast this car is when tuned just right. It will not pass smog in Ca as it sits right now. Buyer is responsible for this. Make me a reasonable offer soon as I am planning on just trading it in for the new Corvette. Car is silver, has both tops, new wheels (CL style) and tires. Pics are in the gallery. PM me offers.

It was done back East somewhere prior to me purchasing it.
