I'm the new owner of a 94 SL320 ... I notice that putting the car in reverse, it will barely move unless you really hit the throttle, also seems a little sluggish in drive at first, although the motor pulls hard to redline and the car accelerates strongly. Is this just a Mercedes or SL characteristic? Reversing in a stately, dignified manner? I had a loaner Volvo today and it just rocketed backward with the slightest touch of throttle. (I have driven manual Porsches and BMWs for years, so excuse my ignorance.)

This does not sound normal. You should take it to the dealer and have it checked...If it is a 98, it should be under warranty.
