The SL-Class as a vehicle that combines many opposing qualities. It retains aesthetic traditions whilst incorporating new innovations, mixes exhilaration and safety, and strikes the perfect balance between efficiency and performance. Intelligent traction systems keep the driver and passengers safe, and the adaptive suspension systems provides a completely customisable drive experience.
Roadster lines on the body reference the car’s legendary predecessors, but Mercedes-Benz has adapted these into a style that is uniquely contemporary. With a body that is crafted almost wholly from aluminium, the vehicle saves weight and can deliver a truly aerodynamic drive that is only enhanced by the streamlined body possessed by the SL-Class.
Luxury systems inside the cabin include automatic climate control, which is dual-zone to provide individually tailored atmospheric control to the driver and front passenger.
The COMAND Online system is standard to all specifications, and combines every facet of the latest technological advances that Mercedes-Benz has achieved. Controlled through the high resolution 7" colour display, it is just as capable of showing 3D maps as it is playing through the music collectionable to be stored on the 10GB hard drive. Other means of control come through the multifunction steering wheel, or by the latest in Linguatronic voice control.
A choice of four petrol engines power the SL-Class. The most ferocious of all, the SL 65 AMG, can thrust the roadster from a standing start to 62mph in exactly four seconds. Even the "least powerful" of the motors on offer, however, can achieve this feat in 5.2 seconds. All the powertrains available can reach an (electronically limited) top speed of 155mph.
As well as providing infotainment functionality, the COMAND Online system also has a number of the SL-Class safety functions within. These include Speed Limit Assist and Parktronic with Active ParkAssist, and there is the option for Active Lane-Keeping Assist to maintain safety in motorway situations. Attention Assist detects signs of driver fatigue, and the Magic Vision Control has a wholehost of capabilities including the ability to prevent the screenwash reservoir and pipes freezing overin cold weather.
