Mercedes-Benz India launched the iconic and timeless automotive icon, the SL, in its most advanced AMG SL 55 4MATIC+ roadster version. In a first in its history, the SL Roadster now in its 7th Generation, has been developed entirely by Mercedes-AMG in Affalterbach, elevating SL’s rich tradition as one of the most aspired modern lifestyle vehicles, from Mercedes-AMG portfolio. The SL has seven decades of driving legacy and to this day stands for one of the few genuine automotive icons in the world.
The car has been priced at Rs 2.35 crore (ex showroom) onward
The new Mercedes-AMG SL now sets another milestone. It combines the sportiness of the original SL with the unique luxury and technological excellence that characterize modern Mercedes-Benz models.
The characteristic long bonnet, steeply raked windshield, charismatic rear end, and large alloy wheels give the roadster its powerful and dynamic appearance. When closed, the seamlessly integrated soft top underscores the purist, sporty impression. A key development focus of the new SL is high aerodynamic efficiency, specifically: a perfect balance between low drag and reduced lift. The luxurious roadster benefits from Mercedes-AMG's wide-ranging motorsport expertise and extensive active aerodynamic elements at the front and rear.
The SL's aerodynamics meet the complex requirements of handling stability, drag, cooling, and wind noise. Regardless of whether the top is down or up, the vehicle character and driving characteristics remain unchanged. The even aerobalance helps to defuse critical driving situations, such as a sudden evasive manoeuvre at high speed.
Further, the AMG-specific radiator grille emphasizes the effect of width of the front and, with its 14 vertical slats, cites the ancestor of all SL models, the legendary 300 SL racing sports car of 1952. Other distinctive design elements include the slim, sharply outlined Digital Light LED headlamps and the equally extremely slim LED rear lamps. • Body Construction ‘Super Light’ The bodyshell of the Mercedes-AMG SL benefits from an AMG sports car platform and lives up to its name: the intelligent material mix of steel, magnesium, fibre composites and aluminium sets lightweight construction standards. At the same time, it guarantees for maximum rigidity and top performance - just typical of SL.
INTERIOR: The interior of the new Mercedes-AMG SL transforms the tradition of the first 300 SL Roadster into the modern era. It features an exciting combination of analogue geometry and digital world - called "hyperanalogue". This is exemplified by the fully digital instrument cluster, which is integrated into a three-dimensional visor.
One of many highlights in the interior of the new SL is the sculptural seat design of the standard. The head restraints are integrated into the backrest and emphasize the sporty character. Perfect ergonomics and various progressive seam and quilting patterns complete the symbiosis of high-tech, performance, and luxury. AMG Performance seats are available as standard.
