New Mercedes-Benz SL 400 replaces SL 350, priced from £72,500

Mercedes-Benz has updated the SL-Class range with the addition of a new SL 400 Sport, replacing the SL 350 as the new entry level model to the range, while the SL 63 AMG gains even more power.

The SL 400 is powered by a 3.0-litre V6 biturbo, found also in the new E400, producing 328bhp and 354 lb-ft of torque, an extra 26bhp and 81 lb-ft compared to the naturally aspirated 3.5-litre V6 direct-injection petrol unit used by the outgoing SL 350.

0-62mph sprint is down from 5.9 to 5.2 seconds, while the top speed is 155mph.

The SL 400 Sport is fitted with 19-inch AMG 5-spoke alloy wheels as well as AMG front and rear aprons and side skirts, a boot lid spoiler in body colour and sports suspension.

Frontbass and Magic Vision Control are standard, as well as DAB and Tyre Pressure Monitoring on the SL 400 and SL 500.

The SL 63 AMG also is updated, packing 577bhp, that’s 48bhp more than the outgoinf standard model and 21bhp more than the performance package currently offers.

Updated SL-Class pricing:
SL 400 Sport £72,500
SL 500 Sport £81,915
SL 63 AMG £112,510
SL 65 AMG £170,815
