Disadvantages: Expensive; takes a few months' wait for a factory order
Summary: The SL coupe cabriolet offers a metal roof and open-top motoring for the best of both worlds - and it's woven together in a classy combination
The SL is a grown-up coupe cabriolet with an emphasis on exclusivity: whilst the SLK is within easier reach of most budgets, the SL extends as high as an £150,000 price tag - for which buyers demand a lot of car for their money. And that's what they get: engines range from powerful to dangerously powerful, handling and refinement are both top notch, plus it's fitted with about every accessory you could think of. Mercedes have also ensured that it is beautifully built, with quality materials and high attention to detail - whilst residual values are high thanks to the lengthy wait to get hold of one.
