Keen owners include the Late Princess Lady Diana.A two-door, two-seat roadster with an automatic (electro-hydraulic) collapsible textile roof, which came with either an aluminium detachable hardtop or optionally with a Panoramic ‘glass’ Roof.
The 3.2 litre M112 18-valve SOHC V6 engine mated to the Mercedes-Benz 5G_Tronic (722.6) electronically shifted 5-speed overdrive automatic transmission, with torque converter produces an output of 221 hp (165kw) at 5,600 rpm providing the car with top-notch sports car performance.
