A sports car that offers both racing heritage and performance alongside exceptional luxury, the new Mercedes-Benz SL has it all.
The new Mercedes-Benz SL is a fast, two-door, two-seater sports car at heart and nowhere is that more clear than in its design. For a start there is the elongated nose that stretches way out from the steering wheel to cut a dynamic swathe through the air as it passes. There's also the deeply cut air intakes which punctuate the SL's sides and, alongside the grille and intakes at the front, show that this is not a car to be taken lightly
If the outside of the SL accentuates its sporting pedigree and heritage then the interior is all about the other side of its personality, that of luxury carriage. Perforated, high-quality leather and various wood trim options come as standard to really build the impression of a luxury vehicle, even as you jet off down the motorway. There are plenty of touches specific to the cabriolet too, such as Mercedes-Benz's patented ‘Airscarf’ system which acts to keep your neck warm when you've got the roof down. The seats also offer plenty of grip and support, making the SL the ideal choice for even the longest journeys.
Engines and handling
The new Mercedes-Benz SL comes with a choice of two engines, the SL 400 and the SL 500. The SL 400 is a V6 biturbo that can handle 0-60mph in under 5.2 seconds, whilst the SL 500, a V8, will do the same sprint in less than 4.6 seconds. Whichever you choose, the SL comes with an exceptional seven-speed automatic gearbox, and there's also the choice to upgrade the suspension to the ABC active body control system for an even better ride quality and driving experience.
As you would expect from a modern Mercedes-Benz, the new Mercedes-Benz SL features a wide-ranging and exceptionally clever set of safety features as standard, in fact the only optional extras that cost money are a closing aid for the doors and the reversing camera. The rest of the SL's onboard equipment can be selected completely free, and includes systems such as Drive Pilot and Active Brake Assist, Blind-Spot assist, Lane Keeping Assist, Pre-Safe Plus and Distance Pilot DISTRONIC with Steering Pilot as well as others.
