The 2002 Mercedes-Benz SL500 Is the Last Old-School Mercedes

14 403
The 2002 Mercedes-Benz SL500 Silver Arrow was the last old-school Mercedes. Today I'm reviewing this SL500 and I'm showing you all around this great example of the R129 Mercedes SL. Then I'm driving this 2002 SL500 to show you what it's like to get it out on the road.

Wait a sec! I just saw your review of the 2002 Thunderbird. This is damn near the same car. Just for the other brand's 70 year olds.

Doug, if you happen to be in northwest Germany at some point, you may review my early 2005 Fiesta ST150, 1st gen full leather edition, as i see that one isn't yet on your channel. It has quirks and features you would surely enjoy.

Doug the type of guy to say that people love to watch him lower the roofs of cars and climb into rear bucket seats when all they want is for him to show us the engine sound.

If it says smog, maybe it’s suggesting you put the top up and turn or the AC so that the cabin filter(s) can scrub the air that you’re breathing. Duh!

Love this one!
The R129 generation in general is awesome!
By the way, the R230 SL generation came out in 2001 not 2003.
It was designed around '97 - '98.
So yes, the R129's design was already kinda outdated by the late 90's.
Still a lovely looking car model
(R129) nowadays though!

Hey Doug, just so you know
Scotty Kilmer is using your name in the title of his videos to trick you tube algorithms so he draws your audience to his channel. Kinda of a scumbag move if you ask me.

Back in 2004 I visited my ex girlfriends dad in fort Lauderdale who was rich. He let me take this car out like it was nothing to him. EXCEPT it was the v12 version. I was barely wasnt even 20 years old driving a v12 Mercedes around the streets of florida like I was a boss lol. Good times

I cannot believe you don't know this Doug! That car, the 1989 SL, was the first convertible in the world with an automatic rollbar. You are talking about other cars having that like it is not a distinct Mercedes feature, but it is. And in this car that you are featuring here, it also still moves up when the vehicle detects that the car is about to roll. Mercedes would never ever let the driver make the decision about crucial safety, I am surprised you would even think that. Makes no sense. Other than that giant blunder, a nice review :-)!

The roll bar will always pop up autmatically regardless of its position whenever the sensors detect an imminent room over. As far as I know It was back than the only car on the market with that unique feature.

I remember when these were new, and I worked for the Mercedes dealer in Dallas at the time. Biggest POS. However, I had to drop one off at a client's house one day. The owner and her maid were out front arguing with meat cleavers. It was like Karen Walker from Will and Grace right before my eyes.

Does the Silver Arrows package come with a swastika flag-convertible top? Not sure celebrating anything German from 1930s is a great idea.
