Since the 300 SL debuted in 1954, the Mercedes-Benz roadster has become synonymous with racing sportsmanship. Lightning quick gearshifts, exhilarating track performance and lightweight aerodynamics has kept the SL front of mind for generations of racing enthusiasts. The new Mercedes-Benz SL advances this aesthetic with an emotive bonnet with radiator grille, superior AMG styling, and progressive appointments in the tail end.
The SL is a roadster, and its name derives from the German Sportlich-Leicht, which translates to Sport Lightweight.
Forge the way to endless skies and unlimited horizons. The new Mercedes-Benz SL prickles the senses with a prowling growl, class-leading emotive appeal and vigorous 6-cylinder and 8-cylinder engines. Injected with chiselled AMG elements, including power domes and an A-wing on the front apron, the new SL is sculpted to leave contenders in awe. A lightweight aluminium body and pioneering design make this iconic trendsetter extraordinarily nimble.
A fabled legend comes to life in thrilling form. Dynamic wide wings, AMG side skirts and large air outlets enhance the racing heritage of the new Mercedes-Benz SL, whilst fresh touches like the vario-roof and 5 DYNAMIC SELECT programs keep it contemporary. LED Intelligent Lights offset its muscular form, whilst the width of its taut rear is underscored with integrated tailpipe elements.
Entice the stars. Luxurious craftsmanship greets you in the cockpit of this two-seater. It’s the grand reception that Mercedes-Benz drivers have become accustomed to, with a sweeping dashboard, ambient lighting in 3 selectable colours, and electrically adjustable seats wrapped in sunlight-reflecting upholstery as standard. The new SL is revamped with a multifunction sports steering wheel, optional aluminium trim, lavish interior LED lighting, and optional nappa leather seats in black/saddle brown.
Pursue the wind. Expect lightning quick gear changes in the new Mercedes-Benz SL with 9G-TRONIC automatic transmission, and a tailored driving experience provided by DYNAMIC SELECT with 5 transmission programmes. Innovations that make driving the new SL a one-of-a-kind experience include AIRSCARF neck-level heating, an optional panoramic vario-roof with Magic Vision Control, and a superior sound experience courtesy of an optional Bang & Olufsen system.
Hailed as the world's safest roadster, the new Mercedes-Benz SL is packed with features that help the driver stay focused on the road. Sensor-based safety innovations include Distance Pilot DISTRONIC, Active Brake Assist and Active Blind Spot Assist, which warn the driver if it senses an impending collision, and can even take evasive action if needed. LED Intelligent Lights and Adaptive Highbeam Assist Plus guarantee clear vision without glare in any driving conditions.
