The new SL Roadster's masculine presence is its key characteristic. Its dynamic lines from the sporty front section to its expressive rear end are as if cast in one piece and only give a hint of its inner values. Distinctive air inlets on the front wings allow the engine to breathe.
Whether the vario–roof is closed or open – the design objective of creating holistic aesthetics with a harmonious interaction between progress and tradition has been successfully implemented in the new SL Roadster.
The elegant interior impresses with its perfect design. The sweeping dashboard flows into the door waistline forming a unit; at the same time it is ergonomic and geared intelligently towards the driver. The air vents on the frontal area with their "turbine look", interpret an emotional reminiscence of the tradition of historical Mercedes-Benz sports cars.
The three-spoke multifunction sports steering wheel with galvanised spokes is flattened in its lower section and likewise carries with it reminders of racing sport aesthetics. This also holds true for the instrument cluster with its colour display and dials of classic design including 3D dial surrounds and backlit scales.
