2017 has proven to be a great year for the SL Roadster, a highly-refined cruiser that puts an emphasis on not only luxury but performance as well. Members of the SL-Class are outfitted for enjoyment, sporting a flowing body structure and sleek lines that really get the heart racing when it drives by. This year, the SL Roadster is nearly 300 pounds lighter and 100 percent inspiring, offering its driver the athleticism and engineering that tips the scales in favor of greater safety, sophistication, and overall quality.
When it comes to performance, the SL Roadster really delivers. It's standard 362-hp 3.0-liter V6 biturbo engine combines power and efficiency in the best way possible. Those who go want to go the V8 route can choose between a 449 hp 4.7-liter V8 biturbo engine or a handcrafted AMG® 5.5-liter V8 biturbo engine that gets 577 hp. Finally, a handcrafted 621-hp 6.0-liter biturbo V12 is available for those who crave a power that is impressively mighty and completely effortless.
The SL-Class comes equipped with a retractable hardtop that opens to showcase a classic two-seat cockpit which features an expansive variety of leather upholstery colors and interior trim options like full-grain, smooth Nappa, hand-finished matte or high-gloss wood, textured aluminum, or genuine carbon fiber interior style.
Surrounded by Sound
Each SL-Class model comes standard with an impressive harman/kardon® surround sound stereo system that delivers 600 watts of audio paired with FrontBass® subwoofers that use the vehicle's body structure to help the sound. Those who want even more bass can spring for the 900-watt, 7.1-channel Bang & Olufsen® BeoSound™ system.
The SL 450 and SL 550 feature a new 9G-TRONIC automatic transmission that delivers more seamless power with every gear change, while DYNAMIC SELECT lets you choose between modes for a drive that's completely tailored to your liking.
