A spectacular experience on the road
The impressive design elements in the SL are much more than just a tribute to bygone days. The flared front wings and rising tapered design boost aerodynamic performance. The two powerdomes on the bonnet, front section with broad radiator grille and gills on the rear end of the wings underline the speed, power, quality and distinctive design of the SL.
An idea you'll warm to
The optional neck-level heating function pampers the driver and front passenger by gently supplying warm air to the nape and front of the neck/head like a warm scarf. At the touch of a button, air is drawn in at the rear of the head restraints and then heated and expelled through an outlet at the front. This ensures that the temperature around the head and neck is maintained at a pleasant level. Three AIRSCARF settings allow you to adjust the system for optimum comfort according to personal preferences, driving style and weather conditions. Simply switch to a higher setting at higher speeds or in cold weather. The system will respond by providing more heat.
With the right roof, there's no such thing as the wrong weather
The Vario roof is the perfect complement to outstanding SL performance. It disappears into the rear of the car in only 16 seconds. Even when the roof is down, the boot capacity is still an impressive 235 litres. With the roof up, you can carry up to 339 litres of luggage. The interior of the SL is as quiet and comfortable as driving a Coupé. Noise, wind and weather are kept outside the vehicle. The panoramic Vario roof offers a breathtakingly real roadster feeling. It includes a large glass element and a roller sunblind and makes the interior even lighter and more appealing. Now you can combine a Roadster feeling with the comfort of a closed vehicle.
