For generations, few cars have inspired desire like the SL. For 2017, it´s even more inspiring. Flowing new LED headlamps sweep back from a reshaped grille. Sculpted lower body styling wraps around 19-inch or 20-inch wheels. And with its retractable hardtop, it's perfectly proportioned as a sleek coupe and as a classic open roadster.
The classic two-seat cockpit embraces its passengers like the SL hugs the road. Technologically forward yet rooted in tradition, its open-air passion is met with unmatched civility, from its season-extending AIRSCARF® system to innovative sun-reflecting leather that's still carefully fitted to each seat by hand.
Nearly 300 lbs lighter than its previous generation, the sophisticated body structure of the 2017 SL is crafted almost entirely from diecast, chilled-cast, hydroformed and extruded aluminum. With 20% greater rigidity, it tips the scales in favor of greater safety, comfort, and most of all, athletic performance.
With an expansive variety of leather upholstery colors and interior trim options, the SL cabin isn't just impeccably crafted. It's individually tailored. A rich palette of full-grain, smooth Nappa and superlatively supple designo® leathers complement hand-finished matte or high-gloss wood, textured aluminum, or genuine carbon fiber.
Much as the SL body generates more strength from lighter mass, its biturbo engines rouse more power and torque from less fuel. Both the 362-hp V6 in the new SL 450 and the 449-hp SL 550 V8 employ ultra-precise tech like piezoelectric Direct Injection and multispark ignition. Both self-tune with millisecond speed to quicken your 0-60 rush.
Built and signed by its own "meister," the heart of an AMG® SL roadster is its handcrafted biturbo engine: a 577-hp V8 in the AMG® SL 63 and the SL 65's 621-hp V12. Turning raw power into refined performance is a litany of engineering derived from a legacy of racing victory, from the growl of their exhaust to the grasp of their massive brakes.
With rigid yet lightweight components, the 4-wheel multilink suspension teams with semi-active damping for crisp handling with silky smoothness. Industry-advancing Active Body Control (ABC®) adds innovative curve-tilting as an SL 450 or SL 550 option. The AMG® Performance Suspension, also based on ABC®, is honed to even sharper, track-tuned edge.
Lighter, quicker and more efficient, the new 9G-TRONIC automatic puts a wider range of ratios with shorter steps between them, to keep you on top of the SL 450 and SL 550 torque curves. New DYNAMIC SELECT has a mode for every mood, adapting the throttle, shifting, steering and more from Comfort to Sport+. There's even a mode you can customize.
The SL's signature retractable power hardtop transforms from open roadster to cosseting coupe in seconds at up to 25 mph. The standard Panorama roof features a see-through panel and sliding sunshade. For even more viewing options at the touch of a button, exclusive MAGIC SKY CONTROL® lets you darken the overhead glass electronically.
Standard harman/kardon® surround sound delivers 600 watts of lush audio, top-up or down. Innovative FrontBass subwoofers use body structure elements as acoustic chambers. Or you can immerse yourself in the audible and visible richness of a 900-watt, 7.1-channel Bang & Olufsen BeoSound system. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are standard, too.
From your car, computer or phone, mbrace® connects you to your world. It puts an ever-evolving array of apps in your car, and on your smartphone, including Remote Start. In-car searches are easy with Yelp and HERE. You can even enjoy streaming audio and WiFi. Five years of mbrace® Connect features and services are standard.
The SL has long led the way in roadster safety: Its pop-up roll bar was an SL first. For 2017, Intelligent Drive takes driver assistance into a new era. A 360-degree network of cameras, radar and other sensors can help get you out of danger before you're in it. While new Drive Pilot DISTRONIC is just one way it eases your every journey.
