Car and Driver: Can the Next Mercedes-Benz SL-Class 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-Class. 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-Class will replace the S-Class Cabriolet. The next SL-Class, set to debut in 2021, will be completely developed by the Mercedes-AMG® Division. Because the next SL-Class 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-Class in order to make sure that it lives up to the expectations set by its sportiest predecessors. The eighth-generation SL-Class, 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-Class lighter and quicker, despite the added weight that comes along with the hybrid technology that all variants will include.
