Mercedes-Benz SL: Officially unvealed!

Mercedes-Benz SL

Mercedes-Benz has officially unvealed the Mercedes-Benz SL. Have a look!

Looking bold and aggressive, the model has an evolutionary design which borrows a number of styling cues from the SLK. Starting up front, there’s a ventilated hood and a single bar grille that is flanked by oversized headlights with integrated LEDs. Further back, the SL’s iconic side vents have become more prominent thanks to a larger opening and longer chrome accents. Lastly, at the rear, there’s LED taillights and a dual exhaust system.

As before, the SL features a folding metal roof but the new version has a magnesium frame which makes it 6 kg (13 lbs) lighter than the previous one. This doesn’t sound overly impressive, but it helps to lower the car’s center of gravity. Additionally, the roof can be equipped with an optional electrochromic glass panel dubbed Magic Sky Control.
