A great modern classic. It is equipped with a big 5.6 liter aluminum fuel injected V-8 engine. It also has some lightweight aluminum body panels,aluminum rear seat frames and magnesium rear suspension. It is very aerodynamic and has a self leveling limited slip rear suspension. 2,000 rpms at 60 mph. Purchase price is cheap these days, the fuel bill can be a little pricey. I use it to tow the Rally car !

Hmmmm; think a 560 engine would be a better choice in a 450SLC?
