A Mercedes-Benz living legend.
Through six decades, the SL-Class has continued to fascinate automotive enthusiasts
with a distinctive, well-appointed design coupled with exceptional engineering and sport
performance. From the 1,600 km Italian Mille Miglia road race where the SL-Class
made history back in 1955, to the athletic beauty of the All-New 2013 SL-Class Roadster,
innovation, meticulous design and a commitment to uncompromised engineering have
been the cornerstones responsible for the creation of an automotive legend.

1952–2012
60 Years of the Mercedes-Benz SL-Class.
For 60 years the Mercedes-Benz SL-Class has been the epitome of a sports car legend –
a byword for outstanding innovation and refined athleticism. A vehicle in which engineers
and designers answered challenges and expectations with spectacular innovations.
Innovations that, still to this day, guide the industry and define the best in every class.

The 1950/60s – A legend is born.
Even at its inception in 1952 the SL-Class had the makings of a living legend: charismatic
good looks, an unforgettable presence and a powerful engine. Originally built as a
racing sports car, the Mercedes-Benz SL-Class’ first competitive outing was the gruelling
1,600-kilometre Mille Miglia in Italy. The 300 SL finished an impressive second and
multiple victories soon followed. Eventually, customer demand prompted the developers
of successor models to seek more refined ways to express athletic prowess.

The 1970/80s – Innovation accelerator.
The transition to a two-seater that offered both comfort and power made a compelling
step forward with the Mercedes-Benz 350 SL of 1971. Innovative features included
the four-spoke steering wheel with large impact plate and reach-through door handles
that stopped the doors from springing open in the event of an accident. From 1980
the SL-Class was also available with the anti-lock braking system ABS, and airbag
and belt tensioners were offered from 1982. The detachable hardtop, previously
available as an optional extra to the soft-top, became standard-fit equipment in 1980.

The 1990s to 2012 – The world’s
most powerful roadster.
At the unveiling at the 1989 Geneva Motor Show, the SL-Class featured a number
of world premieres such as motorsport-inspired seats with integrated safety belts
and a fully automatic folding soft top and wind deflector for draught-free convertible
driving. And the car’s unique roll bar was there – ready to be deployed automatically
in just 0.3 seconds if required. In 2003, the newly unveiled SL 600 featured a 500 hp
5.5-litre V12 Bi-turbo engine. Equipped with a V8 power unit, the SL 55 AMG offered
drivers the same output and dynamic driving. 2004 revealed the new SL 65 AMG –
with 612 hp, the world’s most powerful and highest-torque roadster.

Why they’ll stare.
It’s the advanced aerodynamic design – a lightweight, elongated all-aluminium body accentuated by two
chrome-plated fin air inlets – that first draws the eye. Then the dramatic, defined shoulder lines running
across the entire length of the vehicle steal the attention away. That is, until the eye traces down towards
the prominent, angular bumper with integrated LED running lamps – resting below a wide, upright grille
with a single wing-shaped slat and 3-point star. Indeed, the SL-Class is an amazing sight to behold.

Beauty is not by chance.
Every detail on the SL-Class has its purpose, whether it’s for better performance
or simply attracting attention. The side mirrors are positioned at the beltline for
optimum streamlining. Side outlet fins are plated with the signature SL-Class
chrome for visual enhancement – as are the twin trapezoidal exhaust pipes. Its tail
lamps are wedge-shaped to accommodate the dynamic rear bumper design,
complete with its black diffuser-look insert panel. Because where there’s power,
there will also be beauty.

The view is always breathtaking.
The open road, the thrill of driving – nothing should disturb the
moment. The SL 550 employs MAGIC VISION CONTROL –
a high-efficiency wiper/washer system that cleans the windshield
without disrupting the driver’s field of view. Two laser-cut fluid
channels on both sides of the wiper blades apply washer fluid only
in the direction that the arm is moving, which saves fluid and
is also heated to prevent freezing in the winter. When closed-top
driving is called for, MAGIC SKY CONTROL lets the sun in while
allowing full control over the sunroof’s shade level. It’s all part of
the pure, undisturbed driving enjoyment the SL-Class has to offer.

Make yourself comfortable.
Stylish contours, high-grade materials, meticulous detailing – surrounding yourself in comfort
is as effortless as sitting down. Begin with the SL 550’s sporty, ergonomic seats with high side
bolsters that deliver excellent lateral support. Then notice the sophisticated instrument panel
design with its two classic rounded speed and RPM dials, four rounded air vents and central
full-colour TFT display. But don’t stare too long – once you’re settled in, the real fun begins.

Know your surroundings.
Though your first time in the SL-Class will have you anxious to hit the
ignition, pause for a minute – there’s much to discover. Wrapping
your fingers around the 3-spoke multifunction sport steering wheel
is enough to draw a smile. You’ll immediately notice the wheel’s
flattened lower section, which allows both excellent vehicle control
and a high-tech sport aesthetic. Switches and bezels in silver chrome
and aluminium trim add elegance to the SL-Class’ athleticism,
providing the perfect balance of sportiness and refinement.

As you drive, the standard equipped ambient lighting fills your
interior in pleasant, indirect light. Three colour options – Solar,
Solar Orange or Solar Red – can be individually selected via the

At your command.
The drive itself will be exhilarating enough, but a world
of entertainment & communication options are at your
fingertips nonetheless. Feel every deep, trembling bass note
with the new FrontBass system – a standard on the SL 550 –
which moves the subwoofers from the doors to the footwell
below the driver and passenger for a clearer, crisper bass
sound with a wider dynamic range. Paired with the standard
600 Watt harman/kardon® LOGIC7® surround sound system
or the optional BANG & OLUFSEN performance surround
sound system, you’ll feel the music like never before.
Additionally, SL 550 features the newest-generation
COMAND APS multimedia control and display system, combining
a 6-disc DVD changer, Bluetooth® and GPS navigation system.

The performance begins.
Since the legendary Gullwing model of 1954, the Mercedes-Benz SL-Class has been making racing
history. Today, it undoubtedly carries on the tradition with the all-new 4.6 L Bi-turbo V8 engine,
boasting improved power and fuel consumption. This all-new engine delivers an impressive 429 hp
with 516 lb-ft of torque, accelerating from 0-100km/h in just 4.6 seconds. An ECO Start/Stop function
can be selected to automatically stop the engine if the vehicle is stationary for more than two seconds,
further reducing emissions and saving fuel. It’s a guarantee that every time the accelerator is pressed,
great performance is in store.

Handles you with care.
Beneath the hood of the SL-Class lies
engineering that reinforces its legendary
status. The standard 7G-TRONIC PLUS
automatic transmission makes shifting
virtually imperceptible and delivers
improved power and acceleration with
better fuel efficiency. Three driving
modes are at your selection:
§E–economicalandcomfortablecruising
atlowenginespeeds
§S–sporty,enhancedacceleration

§M–manualgearshiftsforthosewho

The SL-Class’ standard Active Body Control
(ABC) system helps deliver the perfect ride,
allowing the choice between the smoother
‘Comfort’ or the lowered ‘Sport’ modes. Ten
sensors monitor the vehicle’s handling.
Continuous automatic adjustment of each
wheel’s suspension counteracts vibration,
roll, pitching and braking. Lateral movements
are also reduced when cornering, and
the suspension is automatically lowered at
higher speeds. So whatever the road may
bring, it’s nothing the SL-Class can’t handle.

The dynamics of delight.
The SL 63 AMG’s aggressive, sporty design underlines its exceptional
roadster status. From the AMG radiator grille to the muscular AMG
styling of the front and rear aprons, this vehicle conveys dominance
at every turn – and straightaway.
It’s the most powerful SL of all time. Its newly developed AMG
5.5-litre V8 Bi-turbo engine combines the ultimate in performance
with efficient fuel consumption. With an output of 530 horsepower
and maximum torque of 590 lb-ft, the SL 63 AMG outperforms
anything in its category. Pure driving adrenalin comes to you via
the AMG SPEEDSHIFT MCT 7-speed sports transmission – allowing
an economical style of driving as well as dynamic power. From the
AMG sports seats in Exclusive Nappa leather with AMG-specific seat
upholstery to the AMG sports exhaust system, the SL 63 AMG turns
heads as effectively as it does corners.

We start with safety,
then build on it.
Mercedes-Benz has led the way in roadster safety since 1989 when it fitted
the first ever sensor-controlled rollover bars as standard in the SL-Class.
Today, at the heart of this technology is a tilting-cone sensor that works
with an electronic control unit to detect when the SL-Class is at a critical
tilt angle. Normally concealed out of sight, the rollover bars can extend fully
in just 0.3 seconds the instant danger is detected.
Mercedes-Benz ESP® is an innovative handling control system that
actively monitors the vehicle’s centre of gravity. It automatically engages
in certain dangerous situations – e.g. an impending risk of skidding – by
applying a specific braking force to individual wheels and adjusting the
engine output to help the driver master critical hazardous situations.
In case of a collision, the SL-Class offers you the best possible protection.
The driver and passenger airbags trigger in a matter of milliseconds, and
the large-capacity head /thorax airbags on both sides inflate in response
to a side impact. Additional post-accident functions include automatic engine
shut-off, which aids rescue efforts and mitigates injury.

The finishing touches can mean the difference between a work of
art and a true masterpiece. Whichever colour you opt for, it’s an
excellent choice. Because with a selection of both solid and metallic
paint finishes benefitting from an extra scratch-resistant clear
coat, the SL-Class’ colour is less susceptible not only to scratches,
but also to sunlight, temperature variations, dust and soot.
