Mercedes-AMG® SL-Class Roadster Overview

Read about the all new AMG® SL with Fletcher Jones Motorcars

A legend born not just to race but to set records, the SL has been winning the hearts of drivers in Newport Beach and Irvine for generations. For 2023, the icon is reborn, with 469 biturbo V8 horses and a fusion of innovative tech, impeccable luxury, and inimitable style. Developed from the curving road up by Mercedes-AMG®, the new SL shares its architecture with no other car. And it rushes its rich legacy ahead with handling innovations never before seen on an SL.

Sporty Performance


For the first time in 70 years, the SL is available with all-wheel drive: AMG® Performance 4MATIC®+ distributes the drive force fully variably to the front and rear wheels. The AMG® SPEEDSHIFT® MCT 9G transmission combines an emotionally appealing gearshift experience with extremely short shift times and is specially adapted to the requirements of the new SL. You’ll also enjoy the following performance-enhancing features:

  • Handcrafted AMG® 4.0L V8 biturbo engine
  • AMG® DYNAMIC SELECT
  • Racing-derived engine technology
  • 4-wheel multilink suspension
  • AMG® High-performance Composite Braking System
SL Seats

Flawless Design


The new dimensional concept with 2+2 seats enables muscular proportions and improves everyday practicality. The electro-hydraulic soft top opens or closes fully automatically in around 15 seconds, and both are possible up to 37 mph (60 km/h). Either way, be prepared to turn heads in Laguna Beach and Huntington Beach with a vehicle that spots:

  • Hyper-analog cockpit
  • AIRPANEL active aerodynamics
  • Z-fold power soft top
  • AMG® Performance steering wheel in Nappa leather

Perfect ergonomics and various progressive seam complete the symbiosis of high-tech, performance and luxury.

You will also enjoy the SL comfort with:

  • Heated and ventilated power front seats with memory
  • Mercedes-Benz User Experience (MBUX)
  • Biometric authentication
  • KEYLESS-GO
  • HANDS-FREE ACCESS

Technology for the Road


The large, portrait-oriented 11.9-inch central touchscreen offers more easily visible readouts, navigation maps, and animated menus. Vehicle functions respond to natural conversation. For example, say "I feel cold" and MBUX can adjust the climate control. The advanced Surround View System can use cameras in all four directions to compose a single, live overhead view of your immediate surroundings. The first system of its kind, ATTENTION ASSIST® continuously monitors up to 70 parameters of driving behavior, and can automatically alert the driver with both visual and audible warnings if it detects signs of drowsiness on long trips. Brake Assist (BAS®) can sense emergency braking and immediately apply maximum available power boost. Other technology features that assist you while driving on Orange County streets are: Active LED headlamps, Crosswind Assist, Active Brake Assist, PARKTRONIC with Active Parking Assist, and more.
