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.

On February 13, 2011, Mercedes Benz announced that it would be unveiling a
C-Class coupe variant for the 2012 model year. Starting in September 2011,
the C-Class coupe will be made available in C250, C350, and C63 AMG
The C 63 AMG is reportedly the first AMG-Mercedes designed from the ground
up for performance, as compared to previous AMG cars which essentially
featured "bolt on" performance modifications. The C 63 has a revised front
end architecture that is taken from the CLK 63 AMG Black Series. The
7G-Tronic has AMG SpeedShift with three shift modes -- Comfort, Sport and
Manual -- with the last one running with the converter locked allowing the
driver to hold the engine at the rev limit. The ESP can now be completely
turned off, interfering only under heavy braking. The car also has the
quickest, most responsive steering of any Mercedes to date. Car and Driver
tested the car in their December 2007 issue and recorded a 0--60 mph time
of 3.9 seconds and a quarter-mile time of 12.3 seconds at 116 mph (187
km/h). This made the C63 AMG the quickest 4-door production sedan in
the world at its debut.
The Mercedes-Benz C-Class is a compact executive car produced by the
Mercedes-Benz division of Daimler AG. First introduced in 1993 as a
replacement for the 190 range (W201, also nicknamed "Baby-Benz"), the
C-Class was the smallest model in the marque's lineup until the 1997
arrival of the A-Class. The C-Class is built at Mercedes-Benz factories in
Sindelfingen and Bremen, Germany as well as in Mercedes's factories in
Brazil and Daimler AG's South African factory in East London. The very
first W202 C-Class sedan was produced on June 1, 1993, and the second
generation W203 C-Class rolled off the assembly line on July 18, 2000. The
third generation W204 C-Class was launched in 2007. The C-Class is the
entry-level offering in Mercedes-Benz's United States lineup.
The C-Class platform has been used for several coupes, including the
CLC-Class (and its predecessor, the C-Class Sportcoupe) and the E-class
Coupe (and its predecessor, the CLK-Class)
In December 2010, Mercedes released some photos and details of W204 C-Class
facelift, which was officially unveiled during Detroit Auto Show in January
2011. Some new features of the new model includes engine start-stop system,
7G-tronic gearbox available for lower end models with revised gear ratios to improve fuel
economy, a high resolution screen on the dashboard which has visual
functions similar to the S and CL Class models, as well as some minor
revision of the appearance of the interior and exterior of the car. The car
also features the new Mercedes-Benz Comand APS system, first seen on the
2010 E Class. The new 2012 models are expected to be available at the
dealers starting September 2011.
The W204 C-Class has 100 trim levels of equipment -- Classic, Elegance,
Avantgarde, and AMG. The Classic is the base trim found only on the smaller
four-cylinder engine models and come with Brighton cloth seats (ARTICO
leather optional), while the Elegance has ARTICO leather (vinyl) upholstery
standard (leather optional), and the Avantgarde has Liverpool/ARTICO fabric
seats (leather optional). The Classic and Elegance lines retain the
traditional Mercedes-Benz radiator grille usually on sedan models, with a
three-point star bonnet emblem, and is designed to appeal to regular luxury
buyers. The Avantgarde and AMG have a grille similar to that on Mercedes'
sport coupe models, with three horizontal bars and a large centre-mounted
star, plus there is additional equipment such as a three-spoke steering
wheel, AMG bodykit, lower sport suspension, upgraded brake piston calipers,
and larger alloy wheels, and these configurations are designed to position
the C-Class as a sports sedan. Unlike previous generations of the C-Class
and other contemporary Mercedes sedans which stayed with the traditional
grille and hood ornament, the W204's advertising predominantly features the
sport grille and AMG bodykit, especially in Canada and the United States.
