Perfect. Linked to the past but in line with current technologies. Handsome, classy, cool.

I can't help but think that it's getting harder and harder to distinguish Mercedes from Chryslers, even after the split-up. smdh...

V6 in the U.S.?

Any rumors the V6 SL will come to the U.S.?

My 2007 SL was the best car I ever owned and I would consider a new SL (my rep called me today) but a V6 is more than sufficient with gas prices on the rise.

The front end is too bullnosed, the dash is just a series of pods, and the aggressive door panels don't match the other bland styling ques. It's a mismash of an SLS and an SLK... and a poor one at that... not feeling it. (and I'm not just saying it because I'm an R230 fanboy)

This new version of the SL is a winner. Strong, powerful in appearance and technically advanced. A worthy successor to past SLs inside and out. Superb.

It's another beautiful entry in the SL line up but as for front end exterior aesthetics, I think the last gen (facelifted) was and still is absolutely stunning. I will say this though, the new interior is gorgeous!
