A must see (Very clean) 1999 SL500 Roadster, 5.0-liter new-generation 4.3-liter V8 that produces a peak output of 302 horsepower at 5600, Underneath the attractive covers is a single overhead-cam engine that uses the Mercedes-Benz twin-spark, 3-valve-per-cylinder technology that reduces start-up emissions with no loss of horsepower compared to 4-valve designs. The post-combustion volume of exhaust is easily handled by the single exhaust valve. The two spark plugs can fire with a varied stagger-time difference between the two sparks -- depending on engine speed and load. As a result, the V-8 produces a peak output of 302 horsepower at 5600 rpm and a torque plateau of 339 foot-pounds from 2700 rpm to 4250 rpm, the SL500 is more responsive across the board, 0-60 mph acceleration is 6.1 seconds. It's cleaner too, certified as a California Low Emissions Vehicle.
