The latest generation of the Mercedes-Benz SL takes the meaning of the well-known abbreviation "SL" -- Super-Light -- literally at its word. Systematic weight reduction is just as much a part of the outstanding design features of the new 2017 SL as it was for its namesake, the original SL from 1952 with its lightweight tubular frame.
For the first time, Mercedes-Benz has implemented an all-aluminum bodyshell as part of large-scale series production. Only relatively few components are made using other materials.
A particularly eye-catching feature of the new SL is the revised front end: the standard, unique diamond radiator grille extends downwards. Two powerdomes accentuate the long, drawn-out hood. Also adding to the unmistakable new appearance of the 2017 SL is the new standard-fit LED headlights with headlamp housing extending far to the outside.
The model range now includes the SL450 with a V6 engine up-rated to 362 horsepower (additional 34 hp) and 369 lb-ft of torque at 2,000-4,200 rpm, as well as the SL550 with the powerful 449 hp V8 engine.
Power transfer is handled by the new 9G-TRONIC nine-speed automatic transmission. With DYNAMIC SELECT the vehicle characteristics can be adjusted in seconds at the touch of a button, with the system modifying the setup of the engine, transmission, suspension and steering at the driver's command. Additional variants include the two Mercedes-AMG models in the guise of the SL63 and SL65, the latter with a V12 engine.
With the facelift, Mercedes-Benz has improved the comfort appointments even further. These include operation of the electrohydraulic vario-roof. Opening or closing the roof the vehicle can be completed up to a speed of 25 mph.
