    The Mercedes-AMG SL will arrive in 2021 with up to 577 HP on tap from a brutal V-8 engine, but this won’t be a one-trick pony.

    According to a recent report, AMG is about to strengthen the SL lineup with a new entry-level model dubbed the SL 43.

    Instead, Mercedes-AMG will instill it with power from the M254 that’s found in the new C300 4Matic.

    An electric turbocharger will be used to increase power output up to a total of 385 horsepower, or a 130-HP gain over the C300.

    This same turbo will – in some shape or form – make its way to the AMG One hypercar and even the upcoming next-gen AMG GT Coupe.
