Car and Driver: Can the Next Mercedes-Benz SL Restore the Roadster’s Excellence?

July 17th, 2019 by

According to Car and Driver, Mercedes-Benz is officially attempting to restore the legendary Roadster’s excellence with the next Mercedes-Benz SL. This reinvention will be showing more of the spirit of the grand tourer for a couple of reasons: to differentiate it from the GT Roadster, and because the SL will replace the S-Class Cabriolet. The next SL, set to debut in 2021, will be completely developed by the Mercedes-AMG Division. Because the next SL will be produced by AMG, it will be much more sporty than the current version.

 Mercedes-Benz has decided to put AMG in charge of developing the next SL in order to make sure that it lives up to the expectations set by its sportiest predecessors. The eighth-generation SL, only offered as a Roadster, will be using the same Modular Sports Architecture (MSA) platform as the model that will replace the AMG GT. This architecture will help engineers make the SL lighter and quicker, despite the added weight that comes along with the hybrid technology that all variants will include.
