Mercedes-Benz R129 SL500 6.0 AMG
The history of the SL60 AMG is, indeed, one of intrigue. Before its metamorphosis in 1994, the AMG 500SL 6.0 appeared as the first incarnation of the SL60 AMG.
In 1994 AMG was aligned with Daimler-Benz of Bremen, revising, adapting and modifying the SL500 roadster to craft the first the SL60 AMG model, M119 6.0 litre V8—which was manufactured until 1998.
However, it is the production before this collaboration that resulted in distinctive productions of machinery. In 1991, while still independent, AMG presented the AMG 500SL 6.0. Until 1993 AMG assembled these machines donning the striking pre-facelift bumpers as well as the prominent three-piece split rims. In terms of the suspension, the changes are owed to subtle tuning and alterations rather than a complete restyling. The 5.0 litre engine is now superseded by the 6.0 litre V8 which was built on site.
