The 2015 Mercedes-Benz SL isn't just a sports car.
Ever dreamed of a very luxurious two-seat convertible, blending nimble on-road behavior with seemingly effortless power.
This is the car of your dreams...
To quote its engineers, the SL is "the S-Class of sporty cars," providing a unique mix of attributes that distinguishes it from the elegant Jaguar F-Type, the Porsche 911 range, the Chevrolet Corvette, and the brutal but undeniably fast Dodge Viper.
Over its 60 years on the market, the Mercedes-Benz SL has gained power, size, and a great deal of luxury. The current model was launched for 2012, and offers a driving experience that can be more intense than the previous model--but only if the owner wants it that way.
If the current design is any indication, the SL-Class is working its way back gradually to the glory days of Mercedes two-seaters. The exuberantly wide, brash new SL is a crisp, masculine relief. It's emphatic from the front, charming with the top down, to the rear where the tapered look and tail-lamps seem to come from another car, another studio entirely. The cockpit is executed with precision, drilled with aviation-style vents, and implanted with a big LCD screen.
The SL 550 with twin-turbo V-8 displaces 4.7 liters and delivers oodles of torque--516 lb-ft--and snappy responsiveness from its 429 horsepower. Accelerating to 60 mph in 4.5 seconds. The combination of a downsized engine, seven-speed automatic, and stop/start system also manages to earn a 20-mpg combined EPA fuel-economy rating.
