Introduced during the 2001 Frankfurt Motor Show & the Bologna Motor Show, the R230 or the Mercedes-Benz SL600 replaced the earlier R129 before it got superceded by the R231 in 2011.
The design came up after 6 years of intensive effort between teams located in Germany, Japan, and the USA. A supercomputer called CAVE or Computer Aided Virtual Environment was used to finalize the design.
Using a V12 engine, the SL 600 was the most powerful car in its class and could do 0-100 km/hr in just 3.6 seconds. Production of this model ended in 2009.
