Mercedes-Benz unveiled a new generation of its sporty roadster SL.

The new generation Mercedes SL will have an exhibition premier in January at the Detroit Motor Show.

Initially there will be to choose only two engines. A solid base 3.5-liter V-six engine that produces 225 kW (306 hp) and 370 Nm. With this engine under the hood, the new “SL” will start at one hundred in 5.9 seconds, but at 100 km consumes only 6.8 liters of gasoline.
Stronger alternative is a 4.7-liter eight-cylinder.  This engine has an output of 320 kW (435 hp). 100km/h reaches in 4,6 in very impressive 4.6 seconds.


Mercedes informs us that compared to its previous version is a new model up to 140 kg lighter. New “SL” got the all-aluminum body, which alone saved 110 kg. The new body is not only lighter but also much stronger.

New Mercedes SL does not have classic windscreen washers. Washer jets will be directly in the wipers. With this technique wipers water immediately blurred. Engineers also succeeded in interesting use of a space between the engine and interior. There is installed a subwoofer.  Mercedes promises the highest quality of music reproduction.
