In January, the Network appeared the first photos of the prototype Mercedes SL-Class next generation. Since then the car has not been seen, but photospin again noticed the test car 2022 model year. Since the project is still in its initial stage, the body remains fully hidden camouflage.
However, we may notice details such as smooth, slightly recessed headlamps, attention-grabbing grille and slim horizontal taillights. SL fans will surely notice the soft top, because the next generation SL will refuse folding metal roof of the current model. From the next Mercedes SL looks sportier and more proportional, and less congested than before.
Now the most important thing to know about SL the next generation — it will be developed by Mercedes-AMG together with the next GT coupe. This means that both models will use the modular sports architecture (MSA), and the soft top is a distinctive feature of the new SL. According to the head of Mercedes-AMG Tobias Moers, the new SL-Class will be “much sportier” than the current car, offering “a perfect compromise between driving dynamics and comfort.”
Perhaps he no longer has the right to be classified as a Roadster since reports claimed that it will have two small but usable back seats that actually will be a sporty 2 + 2 convertible. It will make his successor as the current SL and convertible S-Class, which will not be updated for the next generation.
It is expected that the engine range will include 3.0-liter inline six-cylinder turbo power of 435 HP and a 4.0-liter V8 twin-turbo 515 HP SL63 has to offer 612 HP from a 4.0-liter V8 AMG and SL73 can return in the form of plug-in hybrid with a total capacity of 800 HP
If all goes according to plan, the Mercedes SL next generation to debut in 2021, which probably means that it will be available at dealers as the model 2022.
