Nearly 60 years after the original SL-Class changed the sports-car world and forever captured its heart, the all-new 6th generation SL-Class is at once a stunning original and a steadfast icon of driving passion.
Every earthly wish granted: The new twin-turbo V-8.
The perfect complement to the lighter, tighter body of the SL-Class is its new-generation V-8. Twin turbos and an abundance of advanced technology deliver 429 hp, 32% more torque and 0-60 in just 4.5 seconds*, all with earth-friendlier efficiency and emissions.
All-new aluminum body: A strong case for the performing arts.
Nearly 300 lbs lighter than its predecessor, the sophisticated body structure of the new SL-Class is crafted almost entirely from diecast, chilled-cast, hydroformed and extruded aluminum. And with more than 20% stronger rigidity, it tips the scales in favor of greater safety, comfort, and most of all, athletic performance.
Polished, and honed: The optional Sport Wheel Package.
Race-proven 19-inch AMG wheels, upgraded brakes and a sport steering wheel with perforated leather side grips put a sharper edge on both the visible presence and tangible performance prowess of the SL550.
Assurance you've come to trust: Assistance you never imagined.
While the SL-Class legacy of safety leadership looks out for your future with breakthroughs like PRE-SAFE® and ATTENTION ASSIST®, its advanced Driver Assistance Package enhances the here and now with Active Lane Keeping and Blind Spot Assists, plus the stop-and-go ease of DISTRONIC® cruise control with PRE-SAFE® Brake.
