Its racing legacy includes records for endurance that have themselves endured for decades. As a sports car for the open road, it’s won hearts and fulfilled dreams. It’s pioneered innovations in performance, safety and luxury. Like no other car, it’s a true icon. And it is reborn.
In an old mill in 1967, two engineers with a passion for motorsports began turning Mercedes-Benz sedans into winning racecars. Today, AMG® continues to create victory on the track and desire on the streets of the world. Every Mercedes-AMG® vehicle is the product of craftsmen, designers, engineers and racers who live for a singular goal: Driving Performance.
A Mercedes-AMG® engine starts with the state of the art. Everything from fuel pressure to exhaust routing is developed to quicken, heighten and intensify its response, and yours. From patented processes to cut friction to a new generation of electrified performance, AMG® technology is fueled by its racing success.
Developed from the curving road up by Mercedes-AMG®, the new SL shares its architecture with no other car. And it rushes its rich legacy ahead with handling innovations never before seen on an SL, from agile performance all-wheel drive to dynamic all-wheel steering.
There may be no sports car with such a rich history. Of making history. From superlative performance to advanced lightness, it’s a purer sports car, a grander tourer, and a more openly ebullient roadster.
An intelligent composition of aluminum, high-strength steel, magnesium and fiber composites creates a body that’s more rigid, more safety-focused, and more precisely crafted. It’s also more aerodynamic, with a lower center of gravity. All with undeniably seductive looks.
Its aesthetics instantly convey its athletics. Its style speaks to its substance, with fluid lines and a solid stance. Can a car be so completely new while advancing the role of an icon? Like no other car, an SL can.
