Following in the footsteps of five highly acclaimed generations of Mercedes-Benz SL sports models, the R231 line introduced in December 2011 had a very tough act to follow. However, the new SL and its capabilities were never in doubt, with equal doses of open-air style, amazing luxury, and pure performance setting it above the rest of the high-end automotive world. Formally introduced to the world at the January 2012 North American International Auto Show in Detroit, the new SL featured aluminum construction for the first time with a new lightweight aluminum bodyshell weighing about 110 kilograms less than its predecessor. Other interesting R231 features include the FrontBass system using the spaces inside the bodys various aluminum structures in front of the footwells as resonance spaces for the audio systems bass speakers, plus adaptive windshield wipers/washers using water collected from the wiper blades as required and depending on the wipers direction. Handling and road holding are exceptional, with the new Mercedes using two different suspension systems, with semi-active adjustable damping the standard setting and ABC (Active Body Control) optional.
The SL500 is the primary R231 model for the North American market, with its 4.7-liter DOHC V-8 engine putting down 429 horsepower with electronic fuel injection and intercooled twin turbochargers. Acceleration from rest to 60 mph requires just 4.1 seconds and while top speed is electronically limited to 155 mph, Car and Driver road testers hit an indicated 159 mph. Handling the forward urge of the SL500 is electromechanical speed-sensitive power steering and huge disc brakes on all four corners. A masterfully engineered power-retractable hardtop provides top-down enjoyment with all-season comfort and weather protection at the touch of a button. Production of these sophisticated modern SL models continues with updates today and as before it is sure to become yet another highly regarded modern classic from Mercedes-Benz.
