The German brand is working on an updated version of the sporty SL. It is known that the novelty will receive several versions and in particular the plug-in hybrid 73e. The total capacity of such power plant could reach 800 horsepower.
Will soon be a new Mercedes SL-Class. In 2019, we saw a fairly heavily modified sedan E-class, which actually was a test mule for the new generation of sport models. In January of this year we first became acquainted with the new Roadster in a real body – see photo. We still don’t know much about SL the next generation, but some “leaked” information that may shed light on the whole model range of the legendary sports family.
Reported six different versions of SL, starting with version and ending with 43 73 e 4MATIC SL +. Presumably, the index “e” indicates that it will be a plug-in hybrid performance model motor power 800 HP
They say that the motor will work with a gasoline V8 engine with twin turbo 4.0 liter, and if you think it’s too much for the new SL, you are not alone. If the rumors are true, then this power will make SL more powerful than the current AMG GT. We also expect a version SL 43, entry-level, 53 SL, S SL 55 or SL 63. It is reported that the novelty will receive the layout of the cabin is 2 + 2.
It is also worth noting that the head of Mercedes-AMG Tobias Moers said that the new SL will be significantly sportier than the current model.
