Mercedes won’t tell it out loudly, but the last generation of the Mercedes SL was not a big success. The looks were not elegant enough and there was cannibalism due to the Mercedes-AMG GT line-up. Mercedes took a different approach for the new SL. The new SL will only be available as AMG variants and with softstop instead of the Vario foldable roof. Furthermore the new SL will be a 2 + 2 seater like it was the case for some previous SL generations. Mercedes-AMG is currently finalizing the winter testing in order to be launched later this year.
