The SL name has long been synonymous with performance, innovation and beauty. Nearly 60 years in, two out of three ain't bad. The new SL certainly has presence, but an awkward nose with busy sperm whale headlights and a rear that falls flat is truly indicative of the fact three different individuals designed the car. But what about those other two things? Well, when the slowest available configuration is a 4.6-liter twin-turbo V8 that propels the car to 60 MPH in 4.5 seconds, we're certainly not left wanting for performance. The middle-ground motor is the 5.5-liter twin-turbo AMG V8 that achieves 60 MPH in 4.2 seconds. To shave three more tenths of a second from your journey to 60 MPH, the $212,240 SL65 AMG with its handcrafted 6.0-liter twin-turbo V12 is the only option. All three cars manage to have shed nearly 300 lbs from the last generation SL thanks to a body structure consisting largely of diecast, chilled-cast, hydroformed and extruded aluminum. Optional Magic Sky Control manipulates the opacity of the standard panoramic roof in the hard convertible top; a technology exclusive to Mercedes. So innovation? Yeah, it has that too. See more...
