Few cars exemplify the blend of hard-driving performance and refined luxury like the 2009 Mercedes-Benz SL-Class roadster.
This power retractable hardtop 2-seater has been redesigned for 2009. The new style features a single bar grille, more angular headlights and an updated interior.
The SL's potent selection of engines ranges from a 382 horsepower 5.5-liter V8 on the SL 550, up to a 661 horsepower 6-liter twin turbo V12, found on the all-new SL65 AMG Black Series. Power is sent to the rear wheels through a 7-speed automatic with V8 engines, and a 5-speed auto with V12 engines.
Fuel economy on the SL ranges from 11 miles per gallon city up to 21 miles per gallon highway.
Base MSRP for the 2009 Mercedes-Benz SL-Class is $98,500. A Fully loaded SL65 AMG will cost over $200,000. The SL is backed by a 4-year, 50,000-mile powertrain warranty.
With updated styling, refined interiors, and a potent powertrain lineup, the '09 SL again achieves a blend of performance and elegance that has always made the SL one of the world's ultimate luxury roadsters.
