The model range now comprises the SL 400 with its V6 engine uprated to 270 kW (367 hp) and 500 Newton metres (additional power: 25 kW/35 hp and also 20 Newton metres of torque) as well as the SL 500 with the powerful 335 kW (455 hp) V8 engine. As standard the power transfer is handled by the new the nine-speed 9G-TRONIC automatic transmission. With DYNAMIC SELECT the vehicle characteristics can be adjusted in seconds at the touch of a button, as the system modifies the setup of the engine, transmission, suspension and steering at the driver's behest. Additional variants include the two Mercedes-AMG models in the guise of the SL 63 and SL 65, the latter with a V12 engine.
