Great roadster with a comfortable ride

by Kyle walker from Naples, fl on January 19, 2018

Having looked at several sports cars, i decided on the 450 sl because of its comfort on long road trips as well as being a hardtop/convertible. It handles well , has descent luggage space and good looks

An amazing V6 Grand Tourer!

by Josephus from Greater Dallas Area on February 20, 2018

Excellent performing V6. And I say this after having owned an AMG SLK, an SL500 and an SL550. This one handles better than any of those 3, is an excellent performer (albeit, of course, not quite as fast as the SL550) and don't be turned-off by Mercedes typical conservative performance stats. Road and Track's are far more accurate: "0-60 in 4.5 seconds; and 107MPH in the standing quarter." Then compare it cost-wise to the price of an SL550 identically equipped (V8 excepted) it's more than $18,000 less costly. All-in-all, an EASY and wise choice. Fine GT car!

2018 SL450 a Great GT Convertible

by JD3 from San Clemente,CA on January 31, 2018

Been shopping for a new SL on and off for 4 years, and the Cosmetic changes to nose in '17 completed my looking into buying (would have bought in '17 but my 25 year old classic too a while to sell). Great performance, balance, appointments and safety wrapped into a fun and beautiful coupe/hardtop/convertible. Pricey, but top end of the Mercedes line is, as this well equipped SL costs over $100K. Mercedes tag line "Best or nothing" does drive the price, and caused me to part with the money. Very advanced vehicle, and a fun way to get on the road for a drive up the Coast.

New 2018 SL450

by JD3 from San Clemente,CA on February 20, 2018

Very happy with the '17 to date refresh of the R231 SL series. The new front facial treatment is much more sleek and balanced that the original take from the 2013 entry. New 9 speed transmission is so smooth you think it is a one speed.
