Allow yourself to be enthralled by the unique vehicle concept of the SL, combining design, technology and performance in a breath-taking roadster.

The looks of a special star.

A timeless silhouette and classic roadster proportions: elegance in its purest and sportiest guise. Plus a progressive touch with the AMG Line. The SL is an icon transported into the here and now.

The steeply pitched diamond grille is an elegant homage to the legendary traditions of the SL. The rear end with diffuser and the two powerdomes on the bonnet attest to the power that lurks beneath. The SL is not shy about displaying its qualities.

Consistently thinking innovations one step further.

The SL has always been a manifestation of a powerful driving force: a passion for a unique driving experience and the high standards of safety and comfort, made possible by outstanding technologies.

These technologies are manifested in the grand notion of autonomous and accident-free driving. And in the concept of the luxury sports car suitable for everyday use, which delivers optimum performance in different situations with its outstanding suspension technology including DYNAMIC SELECT featuring five drive programs.

The legend shows its true face.

Be it six or eight cylinders, the SL convinces with superior performance and outstanding refinement. The V6 twin turbo engine accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h in less than five seconds.

The SL 400 already lives up to what the powerdomes on the bonnet promise – an abundance of power. This applies no less when the top-of-the-range engine gets to work under the stretched hood.

Wide horizons, wide eyes.

The SL is not shy about displaying its qualities. All it takes to open and to close the folding Vario roof in under 20 seconds is the touch of a button. And if the sun makes itself rare – no problem for the SL.

The panoramic Vario roof with MAGIC SKY CONTROL conjures up an open-air feeling even when the roof is closed. For a unique driving experience – any time, anywhere. And with the AIRSCARF neck-level heating system and the electric draught stop, SL drivers can enjoy open-top motoring virtually all year round.
