The R231 generation of Mercedes SL has got a lot of stick for the way it looks, and all of it justified. But it would be unfair if we gloss over the good side of it. The car has a good potential for visual mods; not big, crazy body kit, just a nice set of wheels and some classy color. And suddenly it looks like a million dollars!
This white Mercedes SL550 equipped by Ultimate Auto with a set of Vellano Wheels. Doesn’t it look great? We have to point out the SL you go for has to be a 550 model, because the 350, unless it has the AMG pack, has a very ugly front bumper that ruins the whole thing.
A good-looking SL550 means you can finally enjoy the brutal force of that V8 engine, its astonishing fuel economy, and the comfort and convenience of the coupe/roadster style plus the surprisingly agile and sporty chassis, without feeling self-conscious all the time.
The wheels on this Mercedes SL550 are Vellano VJB 21″ Concave in chrome and white. You can compare this car to this black SL550 with a different set of Vellanos, and see which one floats your boat.
