Mercedes Benz SL-class crash
The R129 was based on the shortened floorpan of the Mercedes-Benz W124 and
featured many innovative details for the time, for instance electronically
controlled damping (optional) and a hidden, automatically expanding
roll-over bar. The R107's rather dated rear diagonal swing axle gave way to
a modern multi-link axle. The number of standard features was high, with
electric action for the windows, mirrors, seats and hood.
Initially, there were three different engines available, the 300 SL with 3L
12-valve straight 6 (190 PS (187 hp/140 kW) at 5700 rpm), the 300 SL-24
with a 24-valve version of said engine (231 PS (228 hp/170 kW) at 6300 rpm)
and the 500 SL with 5L-V8 engine (326 PS (322 hp/240 kW) at 5500 rpm),
joined in July, 1992 by the 12-cylinder 600 SL ((394 PS (389 hp/290 kW) @
5200 rpm). While for the six-cylinder cars there was a choice of 5-speed
manual or 4-speed automatic, the V8 and V12 could only be ordered with the
In autumn 1993 Mercedes rearranged names and models. The 300 SL was
replaced by the 24-valve SL 280 and SL 320 (with 2.8 L and 3.2 L I6
engines, only the 280 being available with a manual gearbox). SL 500 and
600 continued with their respective powerful engines.
1995 saw a mild facelift concerning head- and taillights and several new
features adopted as standard: side air bags, automatic climate control and
ESP, among other things. HID headlights were newly optional, as was a
A second facelift, introduced in late 1998, comprised new external mirrors,
17`` wheels and new bumpers. Also new were the engines, 18-valve versions
of SL 280 (204 PS (201 hp/150 kW) at 5700 rpm), SL 320 ((224 PS (221 hp/165
kW) at 5600 rpm) and SL 500 ((306 PS (302 hp/225 kW) at 5600 rpm). The V12
engine remained unchanged.
Starting in 1994, Mercedes offered special SL models from time to time,
like the Mille Miglia edition cars of 1994 or the SL edition of 2000.
In North America, the SL followed the development of the European cars,
except that not all engines were available there. The 1989 Mercedes SL base
model was the 228 hp (170 kW) 3.0 L inline 6 300SL version, but it was the
322 hp (240 kW) 500SL (with a 5.0 L V8 engine) which made the most
headlines. For model year 1993, the 600 SL was additionally introduced
The SL320 replaced the 300SL in the United States in 1995, but the SL280
was not offered. The 6-cylinder SLs were dropped from the US lineup in
1998, leaving just the V8 and V12. The SL500 got the new 302 hp (225 kW)
5.0 L V8 for 1999.
AMG had already offered an SL version while still independent, the AMG 500
SL 6.0 of 1991. After being taken over by Daimler-Benz, there were several
AMG SL-models available through D-B dealers.
The SL60 AMG was extremely rare. Sold from 1993 to 1998, it used a 6.0
litre V8 engine producing 381 PS (376 hp/280 kW) at 5500 rpm. AMG claimed a
0-62 mph (100 km/h) speed of 5.6 seconds. Its top speed was limited to 250
km/h (155 mph), but with the limiter removed, it was capable of
approximately 185 mph (298 km/h). AMG later unofficially admitted that 0-60
mph was more like 5.0 seconds and the engine produced between 405-410 bhp.
Also very rare was the SL73 AMG, sold through Mercedes-AMG in 1995, and
offering the most powerful V12 engine ever put into an SL up to that time.
After a brief hiatus, the SL73 was offered again from 1998 to 2001. The
same 7.3 L V12 was later used by Pagani in the Zonda.
The SL55 AMG was sold in the R129 bodystyle from 1998 to 2001 in limited
quantity (5.4L V8, 354 PS (349 hp/260 kW) at 5500 rpm). It was the
predecessor of the production R230 SL55 AMG sold later.
Only about 300 cars in the SL-class were customized by AMG prior to the
2003 model year.
2002 Silver Arrow Edition
Special edition of 2002 SL 500/SL 600 made to celebrate the race car with
the same name (from 1930). Two-tone interior leather on steering wheel and
seats, special wheels, etc.
Mercedes Benz SL-class Commercial
The SL500 was the top-selling version of the SL-Class early in the R230
series. It used a 5.0 L V8 engine, which produced 306 hp (228 kW) and 339
ft·lbf (460 N·m).
A 5.5 L 32-valve V8 engine replaced the 5.0 L found in the SL500 for 2007.
The engine is essentially the old SL55 engine without the addition of Supercharger. The 5.5 litre natrually
aspirated V8 can also be found in the new SLK 55 AMG. This model will
retain the SL500 name in most markets, but will be sold as the SL550 in
North America. It now produces 382 hp (285 kW) and 391 ft·lbf (530 N·m).
It now accelerates from 0-60 mph in 5.3 seconds and has a limited top speed
of 155 mph (249 km/h).
In 2007, Mercedes will create 75 limited-edition 50th Anniversary SL550s.
According to another article, Mercedes created 550 of these cars, all
pewter in color with burgundy leather, black ash wood trim, 18-inch double
five-spoked wheels, and matching 50th Anniversary Edition luggage.
The SL600 is the highest-output version of the non-AMG SL-Class models. It
uses a V12 engine which produced 493 hp (368 kW) and 590 ft·lbf (800 N·m)
from 2003 through 2006 and was uprated to 510 hp (380 kW) and 612 ft·lbf
(830 N·m) for 2007. It accelerates from 0-60 mph in 4.7 seconds, according
to Mercedes-Benz. However Car and Driver achieved extremely impressive
acceleration test figures with 60 mph (97 km/h) achieved in just 3.6
seconds, 100 mph (160 km/h) in 8.6 seconds and a Quarter Mile run in 11.9
seconds at 120 mph (190 km/h).
The SL55 AMG version was released in 2002 with a supercharged 5.4 Liter,
5439 cc Mercedes-AMG V8 engine. This produced 493 hp (368 kW) at 6,100 rpm
and can propel the car to 60 mph (97 km/h) in 4.7 seconds, according to
Mercedes-Benz. Car and Driver got 60 and 100 mph (160 km/h) in 4.5 seconds
and 10.9 seconds, respectively. The car completed the Quarter Mile in 13
seconds flat at 110 mph (180 km/h).
The SL55 AMG was updated for 2007 with a 510 hp (380 kW), 531 ft·lbf (720
N·m) version of the same engine. With increased power and torque, the car
can now, according to the official website, accelerate to 60 mph (97 km/h)
in 4.4 seconds, 0.3 seconds quicker than before. The new model has only
slight visual differentiators, the most noticeable is the three-slat grille
rather than the four-slat version used previously. The top speed is limited
to 155 mph (249 km/h), but can be extended to 186 mph (299 km/h) for an
additional cost. The 6.3 liter V8 is expected to replace the current engine
for the 2009 model year. Upon release in 2002 this was for it's time the
fastest automatic car in the world. Of course this was before the SLR
Mclaren hit the market in 2003-present.
The SL65 AMG version offers 604 hp (450 kW) from its twin-turbocharged 6.0 liter, 5,980 cc V12 engine at
5500 rpm. It retailed for $179,720 as of 2005. Mercedes-Benz listed a 0-60
mph time of 4.2 seconds on their official website, though several road
tests show that it actually takes under 4 seconds to reach 60 mph (97
km/h). Car and Driver achieved 60 mph (97 km/h) from a standstill in 3.8
seconds, 100 mph (160 km/h) in 8.2 seconds and recorded a Quarter Mile-time
of 11.9 seconds at 123 mph (198 km/h).
The SL receives a face lift in 2008 featuring a new front end that evokes
the classic 300SL with a large grille featuring a prominent 3-pointed star
and twin "power domes" on the hood, the car also features new headlights
with an optional "Intelligent Light System" and a new speed sensitive
steering system. A more signifcant option will be the addition of a new
entry-level model, the SL280 with a 228 hp (170 kW) V6. Another
breakthrough for the facelift SL is a new 3.5 litre high-revving V6 with an
316 hp and 360Nm torque in the SL350, a improvement of 44 hp and 10Nm over
the outgoing model. Also the outgoing SL55 AMG will be replaced by the
newer M156 6.2 litre SL63 AMG. This has the new AMG developed 7-speed MCT
"Multi Clutch Technology" semi-automatic transmission. This uses a twin
clutch design, a first for Mercedes and AMG. It features a compact, wet
start-up clutch and double declutching. it's fitted with four drive modes:
"C" (Comfort), "S" (Sport), "S+" (Sport plus) and "M" (Manual) and boasts
100 millisecond shifts in "M" mode. The face lifted SL will be debuted at
the Geneva Auto Show.
