2. Model History

Ever since 1954 Mercedes has offered its ever growing clientele the luxurious SL-Class. When 2013 came around it was time for Mercedes to offer a new model and then came the R321 SL. Having been formally launched at the 2012 North American International Auto Show the R321 would be produced on the same basis of all SL's before, to maximise luxury and offer a superb all-round grand-touring hard-top convertible. With the introduction of this new model came an all-new all aluminium body shell which offered a huge weight reduction with it weighing approximately 110KG than if a steel shell was used as with previous models making the new R321 SL a more agile car that would tackle corners with greater ease than ever before. A mid-cycle facelift was introduced in 2016 for the 2017 model year. Cosmetically, every SL received a revised front end, front grille treatment and larger non-functional side 'vents' behind the front wheels. All variants also received adaptive LED front headlights with integrated daytime running lights and turn signals, leaving the below-bumper intake area free from lighting. The LED tail lights received single-colour red or red-and-amber lenses instead of the red and white of the pre-facelift models. Front and rear bumper assemblies were redesigned to align more closely with recent models introduced by Mercedes, while selected convenience and driver assistance technologies, introduced earlier on various other Mercedes models, were made optionally available, including revised Active Body Control (ABC), now with the "Curve Tilting" function from the S-Class Coupe. The SL400 had its power output upped to 362bhp which would now race the car from 0-60 in just 4.9 seconds.

3. Interior

The interior of the SL400 is as you would expect from the German Powerhouse, with only the very best materials and leather hides used to create a sporty and luxurious atmosphere for both driver and passenger to enjoy whatever the journey may entail. From factory build our example was opted with the Beige Nappa Leather sports seating, Black Leather Centre Arm-rest, Leather Trimmed Central Drivers Tunnel that is finished with ash tree wood black inlays, Leather Bound sports Multi-Function steering wheel with paddles. The interior is a whole a fantastic place to be with the Light Leather Seats offering a unique and stunning look with the roof up or down.

4. Exterior

The body of the SL400 is presented in stunning fashion with the Hyacinth Red paint doing a superb job of showing off the classic Mercedes lines and aggressive AMG exterior styling. From factory build our car was opted with the upgrade 19" AMG spoked Alloy Wheels in brilliant silver, Chrome Finished Twin Exhaust Tips, chrome front hexagon grille finished with the classic 3-Pointed Star that dominates the nose, Mercedes Benz Embossed Calipers, and a lip spoiler which is all finished off with the Panoramic Glass Roof that looks truly magnificent whether it is in place or down, offering two fantastic looks all year around.
