New Merc SL Roadster revealed

Car benefits from a new interior and extra power

Mercedes SL Roadster

What you see here is the new generation of Mercedes SL Roadster. Spot the difference to the old one?

No, neither can we, but Mercedes tells us the nose has a more pronounced 'V' shape and the fog lights now have chrome surrounds.

There's also an ever so subtle make-over for the interior, now with an aluminium-look switch to work the folding metal roof.

The biggest changes have been made under the skin, with the V6, V8 and V12 engines gaining extra muscle for swifter performance.

The starting price for the V6-powered SL350 is £62,885, soaring to £101,220 for the SL600. 

Now share it...
