2023 Mercedes-AMG SL - Performance, Price and Photos

2023 Mercedes-AMG SL - Performance, Price and Photos

The folks from Afalterbach have revitalized the SL-Class with new powertrains, cutting-edge tech and for the very first time, All-Wheel-Drive

The Mercedes SL (Sport Licht), which translates to Sport Light in German, is a car that set the benchmark for sport and luxury for nearly seven decades. The 300 SL name has its weight in gold and the latest Mercedes SL (the first one in nearly a decade) is the direct descendent of the SL Roadster from the early 1950s.

The 2023 Mercedes SL Roadster is a new car from the ground up and it essentially replaces the S-Class Cabriolet and the AMG GT Roadster. The folks from Affalterbach have worked extensively on the SL to transform it from a boulevard cruiser to a genuine open-top sports car, reminiscent of the original. Gone is the foldable hardtop roof and in comes a canvas soft top. Also, AMG is calling the SL Roadster a 2+2 and for the first time in the model’s history, 4-Matic All-Wheel-Drive now comes as standard.

Mercedes wants This New AMG GLE to be a Future Classic

It is available for all AMG versions of the Coupe and SUV versions

Everyone loves an anniversary - they are a special time to remember where you came from. Car manufacturers especially love anniversaries because it gives them a chance to tell potential customers how long they’ve been on the block. 2022 happens to be the 55th anniversary of AMG, so Mercedes decided we needed another version of the GLE. SUVs and specifically crossovers have been a booming market for years now and every manufacturer is cashing in. The latest example of this from Mercedes AMG is the limited "Edition 55" version of the AMG GLE 53 and GLE 63 S Coupe.

New Mercedes AMG C-Class Hauls Around the Nürburgring...Quietly

New Mercedes AMG C-Class Hauls Around the Nürburgring...Quietly

Will the hybrid 2-liter turbo take away the AMG’s soul?

A Mercedes AMG C-Class without a V-8 would have been considered unthinkable ten years ago. Back then, the 6.2-liter V-8, which had one of the best exhaust soundtracks since the turn of the century, was dropped in nearly every AMG model in production. This meant that the German car industry was awash with glorious rumbles, snorts, growls, and bellows from Merc’s handcrafted naturally aspirated V-8. Then, by 2016 the current-generation C-Class was in full production with a 4.0-liter twin-turbo V-8 that was more efficient and powerful than the old 6.2 but lacked some noise and character.

The AMG one and GT 63 S Share More DNA Than You Think

Hopefully we see F1 tech in even more cars down the road

The Mercedes AMG Project One was first unveiled about four years ago and has been in development at least to some degree ever since. We knew it would take a while to get the 1,000 horsepower 1.6-liter turbo hybrid V-6 Formula 1 powertrain to play well on the road, but it has been a long wait. However, with the development stage being replaced with the production stage we are starting to see just how much of the Project One is being carried over to more conventional models.

2022 Mercedes AMG SL63 - Performance, Price and Photos

The latest top-spec SL Roadster brings significant updates with an all-new platform, refreshed design, nicer interior, and up to date tech

This is the all-new Mercedes-AMG SL 63. The SL, which stands for Sport Licht in German, and translates to Sport Light, is an iconic model for the German marque. It can trace its lineage back nearly seven decades all the way to the early 1950s. But over the generations, the SL class went from being a sports car to a luxury cruiser. Fast forward to today and Merc has decided to ditch the boulevard cruiser body and has taken the SL back to its roots.

The Mercedes-AMG SL debuted in October 2021 and takes on a whole new form factor where it’s gone from a sportscar to a full-on supercar. Internally known as the R232, the seventh-gen SL will replace the AMG-GT Roadster. Also, for the first time in history, the SL will come with 4-Matic AWD as standard. In a bid to save weight (46 pounds), Mercedes has decided to ditch the folding metal hard-top for a more traditional soft top.

A more powerful version will also be offered, however, and just like with the SL, this range-topping plug-in hybrid will wear the E-Performance badge.

The Mercedes-AMG SL43 Is As Strange As It Is Revolutionary

The Mercedes-AMG SL43 Is As Strange As It Is Revolutionary

The SL43 ditches the traditional V-8 found in other SL models for a four-cylinder and an electric exhaust turbo – the first of its kind on a production car.

It’s been about six months since Mercedes revealed the all-new SL Roadster – a car that is designed to make up for the mundane car that came before it with a number of unique features and enhancements. A new AMG GT coupe is expected to arrive as a sidekick to the SL, and an entry-level version of the SL has been rumored for months. Now, that car has arrived, and the rumors were right – it’s powered by a four-cylinder engine. This isn’t your typical four-cylinder engine, though, and it still boasts some impressive power thanks to clever engineering.
