The baddest SL of all was this, the 300SL. The 300SL won LeMans in 1954 I believe it was. There's still quite a few of them on the road, most were wrecked. The insurance is astronomical:
That's a 190SL on the right.
I was actually gonna buy one for $110k in 1999, but couldn't swing the deal. Long story, but I'll just get pissed off all over again if I tell it.
