In nature the calm comes before a storm – on the road it's a sonorous sound: the sports engine of the SL 350 with 232 kW (315 hp) and 350 Newton metres of torque quickly delivers up to 7200 rpm. And thanks to improved combustion, with lower consumption and CO2 emissions.
The SL 500's eight-cylinder baritone demonstrates what it has to offer. 285 kW (388 hp) and a maximum torque of 530 Newton metres allow it to accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in 5.4 seconds.
Extremely cultivated – that's the SL 600. With a V12 engine, 380 kW (517 hp) and a maximum torque of 830 Newton metres. It takes 4.5 seconds to sprint from 0 to 100 km/h.
The new SL 280 with 170 kW (231 hp) and a torque of 300 Newton metres stands for lots of fun at the wheel with only 9.4 litres of consumption.
The 7G-TRONIC provides speed while shifting in the models SL 280, SL 350 and SL 500. If necessary it skips a few gears to impressively show its concentrated sprinting power. In the SL 600 a 5-speed automatic transmission provides optimum power delivery. Whichever SL you drive, you'll feel exactly what it has to offer as soon as you turn the key in the ignition.
