Mercedes-Benz SL: Fresh spy shots

Mercedes-Benz SL

We found fresh spy shots of the Mercedes-Benz SL. Have a look!

With only a few slim pieces of black camouflage hiding its shape, it’s clear that the new SL’s wide, low front end is inspired by both the CLS four-door and the SLS, and the reshaped headlights, and a pair of LED running lights are visible beneath the black masking.
 
Hardcore AMG versions of the SL will feature the all-new 563bhp 5.5-litre V8 twin-turbo, from the CL, while the SL 500 will be powered by a smaller 4.6-litre unit that combines strong performance with greatly improved fuel efficiency.

Thanks to extensive use of lightweight reinforced plastics and carbon-fibre components the 2012 model is expected to be lighter than its predecessor too, with the newcomer set to make it’s motor show debut at Geneva next year.
