Turbocharged Engine Options
Power and performance are trademarks of the 2017 Mercedes-Benz SL model lineup. A standard 3.0-liter biturbo V-6 mated to a dynamic nine-speed automatic transmission manufactures a heart-pounding 362 horsepower that can be upgraded to a 449-horsepower 4.7-liter biturbo V-8. Drivers who opt for performance-tuned Mercedes-AMG® editions can choose from a 577-horsepower 5.5-liter biturbo V-8 and a 621-horsepower 6.0-liter biturbo V-12.
Power Retractable Hardtop
Enjoy open-air excitement in the convertible Mercedes-Benz SL roadster at the touch of a button. An innovative power retractable hardtop can raise or lower in a less than 20 seconds at speeds that reach 25 mph. Complete with the Mercedes-Benz AIRSCARF neck-level heating system, the Mercedes-Benz SL will ensure supreme comfort when you hit the road in cool weather at high speeds. A panoramic roof is another highlight of the Mercedes-Benz SL design.
