We lately noticed spy photographs of the following era Mercedes-AMG SL Roadster, however now Mercedes has deemed it applicable to publish their very own footage. The photographs come as Mercedes pronounces that the automotive might be examined on public roads. There is not a lot else that Mercedes has revealed, nevertheless it made an fascinating assertion in regards to the SL.
Within the photographs we will see that the brand new SL is closely impressed by the AMG GT sports activities vehicles. It has the identical radiator grille, sinister headlights and a rounded rear because the AMG Coupé. Nonetheless, the proportions are totally different. The nostril seems to be decrease than the remainder of the automotive, not less than, and the passenger compartment sits additional ahead, permitting for a definite rear deck instead of the GT’s fastback roofline. The trunk lid has a ducktail spoiler form, and the photographs present two totally different units of exhaust ideas between the 2 vehicles.
Concerning the above assertion, Mercedes says: “The subsequent era of the legendary SL Roadster is returning to its roots, which return to the legendary 300 SL racing automotive from 1952.” That is fascinating, as a result of in the previous couple of many years the SL has been extra of a grand tourer than a daily sports activities automotive like the unique 300 SL gullwing. Due to this fact, the brand new SL is probably a lot sportier and extra highly effective than its predecessor. That is additionally supported by the truth that the automotive has now been named a Mercedes-AMG product with no point out of a Mercedes-Benz variant.
We do not have a transparent timetable for the brand new SL’s debut, however we anticipate it to be in a few years primarily based on testing and protection of this prototype.
