Charles Morgan cruises Wales in a 1987 Mercedes-Benz SL500
Morgan freely admits that the SL500 is for cruising around; this absolutely is not a hardcore sports car. However, the luxurious convertible is perfect at its job. He likens driving the droptop to riding on a magic carpet because the combination of a big V8 and floaty suspension mean you just glide over the road. Morgan also thinks this generation of SL-Class might be the last over-engineered Mercedes.
The Welsh backdrop makes for a beautiful setting for Morgan to explain a little bit about the R107 SL's history and to enjoy its comfy ride. Join him on his automotive magic carpet in this clip from Carfection.
