Back on track here, for 1999 the top sports car offering from Mercedes Benz was an AMG modified version of their SL roadster, the SL 73. Per Benz naming convention, this car carried a monstrous 7.3 liter V12 in it's nose, which put out 525 horsepower. This same V12 would be used later in the exotic Pagani Zonda. Only 85 examples of the SL 73 were produced.

The R129 SL was designed by Bruno Sacco. The example shown in these photos benefits from minor modifications.
