The Mercedes-Benz SL storm this time with an attractive design in the new generation
Seventy years ago, seven generations of this lovely roadster were produced by Mercedes-Benz, but it can be claimed that this time Mercedes has introduced the seventh generation of this lovely car with fundamental changes. One of these changes can be called renaming SL to AMG SL. The second and fundamental change in the new generation AMG SL is the new platform of this roadster. The platform, which is made of steel, aluminum, magnesium and composite, will also be used for the next generation AMG GT. The new version is 74 mm larger in length than the previous generation, and the wheelbase has also been increased.
Technical Specifications :
So far, Mercedes has introduced only two engines for this German beauty. The first engine as a base engine with a volume of four liters V8 twin turbo can bring 475 horsepower and 700 Nm of torque. These engine specifications are offered for the SL55 code and in a more powerful version with the SL63 code, with the help of turbocharged boosters and changes made in the ECU, the output power of the previous engine is increased to 585 horsepower and 800 Nm of torque. done. This power and torque can accelerate the SL63 from a standstill to 100 km / h in 6.3 seconds, which is about 0.3 seconds longer for the 55 Code. Engineers in both models have used the AMG 9-speed automatic transmission, which is responsible for transferring propulsion power to four wheels. According to experience, there is a possibility of introducing hybrid versions in the future, about which detailed information has not yet been found.
Major changes :
Apart from the ones we mentioned at the beginning of the article, Mercedes-Benz engineers have made other changes in the new generation SL. For the seventh generation, they have used a retractable fabric roof that weighs less than the previous generation metal roof and also takes up less space in the trunk. This roof can be opened and closed up to a maximum speed of 60 km / h, and its opening and closing time has been reduced by 5 seconds compared to the previous generation. For the first time, Mercedes has used two small rear seats that only children under the age of 12 seem to be able to use!
At first glance, the seventh generation has many similarities to its successor, the AMG GT. The rough and aggressive face of this roadster shows us the peak of design and genius of German design engineers. The rear spoiler automatically creates the best aerodynamics in five different modes at different speeds, but to improve the situation, you can order a new aerodynamics package to provide fins and a new spoiler for the front of the car. This order allows you to experience less upward force at speeds above 250 km / h.
Cabin design and price :
Inside this roadster is the first point of its large screen. This monitor is equipped with MBUX infotainment system, which can show some of the art of German engineers. The artificial intelligence used in this system has the ability to distinguish the driver's voice from other occupants and allows the driver to use this technology to change the lighting systems of the lights, air conditioning and the volume of the speakers. The beauty of the AMG SL cabin is doubled. Headphone display and 3D odometer are other highlights in the cabin. Finally, we need to know that Mercedes-Benz has not yet announced the exact price and time of release of this lovely roadster, but according to speculation, the base model will most likely be sold at a price of one hundred thousand dollars.
