Large, thirsty sports cars seem to still be finding a market.
Although launched at the beginning of the year, the 2009 SL-Class is already a success for Mercedes.
The refreshed fifth generation of the SL-Class has so sold 145,000 units. Demand for the SL is particularly high in the U.S., where half of all SL-Class roadsters are sold. The SL 500 is by far the most popular model among customers who choose SLs.
