DESCRIPTION

The Mercedes SL has long stood for refined elegance and continent crushing ability but it was only with the introduction of the 2002 model year car that the Sport part of the SL's 'Sport Leicht' designation could justify its existence. The previous model was neither sporty nor lightweight and although the later car still doesn't so much tip the scales as total them, Mercedes have made the effort to endow the car with some genuine dynamic prowess. Opt for one of the more powerful versions and you get a car with supercar performance but with accoutrements that would do most luxury saloons proud. The best SL to date? Most would agree...
