This afternoon, Mercedes-Benz launched the all-new SL.
The 2+2 roadster will be available for the first time with all-wheel drive and rear-axle steering.
At launch there will be a choice of two engine outputs using a AMG 4.0 litre V8 biturbo unit. The SL63 4MATIC+ produces 585 hp and 800 Nm of torque. 0 to 62 mph takes 3.6 seconds and has a top speed of 195 mph.

The SL55 4MATIC+ has 476 hp and 700 Nm of torque. 0 to 62 mph takes 3.9 seconds and has a top speed of 183 mph.
Further engine versions to follow, including a hybrid.
Both models use a AMG SPEEDSHIFT MCT 9G transmission.

The SL is an icon: For almost 70 years, the distinctive sports car has delighted Mercedes customers of every generation around the world. With the rebirth of the roadster from Mercedes-AMG, the new SL more than ever remains the symbol of this timeless fascination.

Said Britta Seeger, Member of the Board of Management of Daimler AG and Mercedes-Benz AG, responsible for Mercedes-Benz Cars Marketing and Sales.
