Thumbs up 2000 Mercedes-Benz SL600

2000 Mercedes-Benz SL600

• Same V12 engine used in the Pagani Zonda C12
• SL-Class R-129
• Less than 25,000 miles!
• Original MRSP: $128,950
• Black canvas top

When driving an SL500, the V-8 makes a statement of one’s automotive taste. When driving an SL600 however there is a V-12 ready to testify to your automotive inclinations. When produced this vehicle was the pinnacle of Mercedes’ convertible Grand Tourers. With almost 500hp and 600 lb-ft of torque this monster will propel you from 0-60 as fast a Ferrari f430! Today this vehicle is the bargain of the century. You will drive home with the same V-12 that powers the beautifully raw Pagani Zonda C12.
The SL600 includes probably everything that may have been optional for the SL500, like dashboard-adjustable shocks and ride height control, CD changer and xenon lights. Since it is a known issue, the convertible top cylinders have also been replaced. The SL600 doors and dash are covered in leather, not MB-Tex. With 22,700 miles this car is excellent condition for its age.

I think you have a mismatch of information; the Zonda is powered by the 7.3L version of the M120 V12.
Technically speaking, the v12 powering the Zonda is yes based on the M120, but much more evolved than the standard version on the R129.

There are no turbochargers on the R129.

The correct figures for an SL600 are 6.0 L 48-valve DOHC V12 (394 PS (290 kW; 389 hp) @ 5200 rpm).

You are correct, I unfortunately picked the wrong generation SL600 specs and I could not edit this post. However, the original Zonda C12 produced in 1999 did in fact have this same R129 engine. It was not until 2002 that they switched to the 7.3L, and they had the first Zonda S featured with a 7.0L. I did post the wrong specs, though I for some reason cannot edit my post. Any help is much appreciated.

I think Zonda used about 20% if not less of the original M120 engine. Great car though but I may be partial to the 600's.
