Mercedes-Benz’s iconic SL is now in its sixth generation, with the final redesign introduced in the 2013 model.
A new SL is coming soon, but this time it is being developed by Mercedes-Benz AMG Performance Skunk Works instead of Mercedes-Benz. A prototype has been discovered and wears the least camouflaged gear ever.
Currently, the new SL is scheduled to go on sale as a 2022 model in early 2022. However, the release should take place later this year.
At launch, there may be two variations with mild hybrid powertrains. One is likely to have the SL53 or SL55 badge, which is about 430hp. The other must be badged with SL63 and packed at 600hp or higher.
We look forward to going further and installing the SL73 range topper. Over 800 hp plug-in hybrid setup..This setup replaces the AMG V-12 and will soon debut with range toppings. GT7 34 Door Coupe Variant..
All-wheel drive will also be available First time in SL..

Regarding the look of the new SL, Mercedes design chief Gorden Wagener has previously stated that the car will be closer to the original 300SL, but it’s not a retro way. The latest testers are still quite camouflaged, but reveal some of the car’s lines.
Under sheet metal, the new SL utilizes a new rear-wheel drive platform for sports cars called MSA (Modular Sports Architecture). This will be used by AMG in the next GT sports car, so you can expect much higher performance. This time I focused on SL.Interestingly, SL Replace your current GT Roadster.. The SL is also compatible with the previous S-Class Convertible, which may result in 2 + 2 seats instead of the exact two-seater like the GT Roadster.
Weight reduction is the key. Expect lighter and more exotic materials to be used for the construction. We already know that the softtop roof will replace the last two generations of retractable hardtops.
