The race-reared and exceptionally recognized Mercedes-Benz 300SL Gullwing roadster began the legacy the SL-Class when it initially showed up at the 1954 New York automobile fair. The vehicle flaunted a progressive direct-infused, dry-sump, 3.0-liter straight-six motor that was mounted to round steel space outline frame intended for dashing. This 3.0-liter delivered 215 hp that impelled the vehicle to 60 mph in insignificant 8.5 seconds, a significant accomplishment for the time. Because of the roadster’s space casing plan, customary entryways were outlandish at the time. Subsequently, engineers chose to cut the entryways profound into the rooftop and pivot them at the top so they can swing up to open, taking after the wings of a seagull, loaning it the “Gullwing” epithet that is as yet utilized today.
The 190SL was uncovered alongside the 300SL, fueled by a 105-hp four-chamber, this littler and lighter car was the more affordable passage level model. Because of the little, hot (A/C was not offered), and hard to escape lodge, Mercedes-Benz chose to expand the car’s intrigue with the entry of the roadster in 1957. The roadster had customary entryways and a bigger trunk, yet at the same time brandished the Gullwing’s powertrain and measurements. The accuracy and craftsmanship that went into the structure and creation of the Gullwing and roadster make these vehicles feel unfathomably excellent, clarifying their noteworthy cutting edge esteem.
The second-age SL-Class was presented in 1963 with the 230SL car and roadster. It split the contrast between the previous 190SL and 300SL, however, adjusted more to the more affordable 190SL model to pull in a more extensive scope of purchasers. The removable hardtop extended its intrigue, and furthermore gave it the “Pagoda” moniker, because of its sunken area. This was the primary SL age to offer cooling and programmed transmission. Later underway, Mercedes-Benz discharged the 250SL and 280SL, fueled by a 2.5-liter and 2.8-liter individually.
Mercedes-Benz discharged the more substantial, longer, and more extensive third-age SL-Class to the U.S. in 1971, presently with a V-8. The 450SL was controlled by a 4.5-liter V-8 matched to a three-speed programmed and now additionally arrives in a 4-situate car model called the 450SLC. The more dominant and faster 500SL and 500SLC were not authoritatively sent out to the U.S. showcase. The less ground-breaking 380SL supplanted the 450SL from 1981-1985. At that point from 1986-1989, the U.S. got the 5.6-liter V-8 fueled 560SL that was mated to another four-speed programmed. This age was underway for a great 18 years and over a fourth of a million were obtained far and wide.
In 1989, we saw the arrival of the fourth-age SL-Class roadster with a 5.0-liter V-8 fueling the 500SL and a 3.0-liter straight-six driving the 300SL. The new bigger and heavier SL-Class was increasingly contemporary and attractive in structure. With the innovation that incorporates electronic security control, electronically monitored slowing mechanisms, versatile damping safeguards, and front airbags, the SL-Class was one of the most refined vehicles available. For the 1993 model year, the U.S. market got the 600SL, controlled by a 389-hp 6.0-liter V-12. At the point when Mercedes-Benz changed its terminology in 1994, the letters were currently put before the numbers in the model name, presently making the varieties SL320, SL500, and SL600. The six-chamber SL models were dropped from the U.S. showcase in 1998, leaving just the SL500 and SL600.

The SL63 supplanted the SL55 and included another 6.2-liter V-8 that delivered 518 hp and was matched to a seven-speed programmed. The restricted creation SL65 AMG Black Series appeared in the U.S. showcase in 2010 tipping the scales at 551 pounds, not exactly a standard SL and is furnished with a 6.0-liter twin-turbo V-12 that delivers an astounding 661 hp and 738 lb-ft of torque that moves this Mercedes to 60 mph in an incensed 3.6 seconds.
What’s going on for 2019?
Mercedes-Benz has rolled out precisely zero improvements to the 2019 SL-class lineup. In any case, the organization released data that recommends that the 2020 model year will be the last kept running of creation for this age of the admired fabulous tourer, set apart by a unique Grand Edition model. An all-new SL-class is relied upon to make a big appearance in 2020 or 2021.
Motor, Transmission, and Performance
Regardless of whether you pick the SL450’s turbo V-6 or the SL550’s turbo V-8, you’ll appreciate natural power and refined execution. Obviously, with the V-8, you’ll get a more significant amount of that effortless power. Regardless of whether the 362-hp SL450 isn’t the snappiest SL model, its increasing speed is smart and fulfilling—it arrives at 60 mph in 4.5 seconds, quick by any measure—with fresh reactions from the nine-speed programmed transmission. We adore the V-6’s fumes note, as well, and its presentation is sufficient to make the fundamentally progressively costly SL550, with its extra 87 torque, appear to be superfluous. If you genuinely care about identification esteem and you have the new mixture, you should skirt the SL550 out and out and enjoy the pedal to the metal AMG SL63 and SL65 ultra-execution variations, which pack considerably more power and restrictiveness. The SL isn’t as coordinated as evident games autos, for example, the Porsche 911, yet it’s as yet enjoyable to drive rapidly. The well-weighted directing is exact and fulfilling, and the customizable suspension solidifies pleasantly in the Sport and Sport+ driving modes. Leave it in Comfort mode for a for the most part comfortable ride quality, albeit some harsh effects from the street enter the lodge, inferable from the enormous haggles profile tires.
Mileage and Real-World MPG
Mileage is likely, not high on the need rundown of most purchasers of top of the line two-situate convertibles; in any case, the SL450’s V-6 conveys necessarily preferred effectiveness over anticipated. The SL450’s EPA numbers are about standard among its friends while deciding on the SL550’s V-8 drops the appraisals significantly, to 17 mpg city and 25 mpg interstate. We haven’t tried the SL550 on our 200-mile interstate efficiency course, yet the SL450 dealt with an excellent 31 mpg in our testing.
Inside, Infotainment, and Cargo
Extravagant, all around collected, and simple to utilize, the SL’s lodge is a lovely spot for two—regardless of whether it doesn’t feel very as extraordinary as that of a portion of the more up to date models from Mercedes-Benz. The front seats are mounted low, as you’d expect in an energetic two-entryway, yet it’s sensibly simple to get into and out of them. They’re profoundly customizable, agreeable, and have a lot of room. With standard cowhide upholstery and an assortment of wood, aluminum, and carbon-fiber trims to look over, the SL’s inside is dressy enough to coordinate your best clothing for a night out on the town. Portions of the dashboard look dated, for example, the little infotainment screen and the bunch of catches underneath it. However, we wouldn’t fret on account of how easy to understand the interface is. The SL’s presentation screen is worked by an order handle situated on the inside reassure, and we welcome that it incorporates excess hard catches for different capacities. About everything comes standard on the SL-class, from route to Bluetooth to Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. An assistant sound information jack isn’t accessible, yet two USB ports are. Critical infotainment choices incorporate an updated Bang and Olufsen sound framework and a Wi-Fi hotspot available for a month to month membership rate following a three-month preliminary. The collapsed hardtop takes up a lot of room in the freight territory, so you’ll need to pack cautiously on the off chance that you plan on touring the countryside with the top down. A versatile parcel obstructs the piece of the payload zone that the top possesses with the goal that it doesn’t pulverize your baggage when you choose to appreciate the daylight. Talking about gear, the SL’s trunk will fit only two portable bags—pack likewise.
Security and Driver-Assistance Features
The SL-class sells in such low volumes that it’s a quiet need for security testing, which means it hasn’t been crashed tried here in the U.S. what’s more, has no official security information. A full arrangement of driver-help advancements is offered, however not as standard gear.
