For more than four decades, the Mercedes-Benz SL was the paragon of affluence and success, but its final generation failed to make a clean break from the bank accounts of the affluent. Even though its performance and handling were unmatched, the SL's design—a nose-heavy, squared-off look—led customers to look elsewhere after decades of elegance.

The new SL is here, a sleek and form-fitting convertible that forgoes the retractable hardtop in favor of a fabric cover. The new SL is no longer a two-seater because it now has two small seats in the back. These seats may not be good for people, but they can fit two roller bags. If you want to keep more than one, you'll need to find a different location, as the trunk's storage capacity is only eight cubic feet.

The V-8 engine's growl, the steering's quick response, and the smooth ride are all positives. The SL has been redesigned to be a little more useful, but Mercedes has made sure that it doesn't go too far in the direction of being practical. There are 2 AMG variants to choose from. The SL63 we tested has the same twin-turbo 4.0-liter V-8 as the less expensive SL55, but it has 577 horsepower instead of 469. You can go from 0 to 60 mph in 3.0 seconds, and other cars will blur by as you tear down the road. If you have a nine-speed automatic, make sure to avoid using the Eco setting. In that mode, the gearbox will automatically choose the highest gear possible and won't shift down to save gas. The moderate mode struck a much more satisfying balance.

The SL's high beltline and cowl make the inside roomy and wrap the driver and passenger in comfort. While a lower seat position does nothing to improve visibility outside, it does move you away from the wind when the top is down. Most of the interior is upholstered in leather, and there is some nice contrast stitching, though the door seams don't even come close to matching the ones on the dashboard. The SL63, like any other convertible, is at its best with the roof down. As the aromas waft in, the V-8 emits a blazing and brazen tune. Tacos from the Jasmine, Magnolia, and Plumeria streets

Even though the SL63 has big wheels with small sidewalls, it is still comfortable to drive, even on the broken pavement in the Midwest. You wouldn't think this was a convertible based on the design. None of the shaking or quivering was transmitted to the windshield or the steering. At high steering inputs, the SL63 can be turned with the same ease as the smaller AMG GT. To make the nose stick, lean into it, but keep in mind that the rear tires will start to slip before the fronts do. Its balance between stability and maneuverability is extremely risky, even for a sports car.

There are drawbacks such as poor visibility, crooked interior trim, and a tiny trunk. When we talk about sports cars, it's hard to look past the Porsche 911 Carrera GTS Cabriolet as a direct rival. The SL has improved insulation, suspension, and a V-8 soundtrack. The 911 is more rapid, has a manual transmission option, and is a more exciting automobile overall. With no doubt, the SL63 holds a special place in our affections. I just need more room in the bank account. You wouldn't buy a brand-new 911 Carrera 4S and an SL63, would you? Because what if you did?


The SL63 uses the same twin-turbo 4.0-liter V-8 as the less expensive SL55, but raises horsepower from 469 to 577. There are 2 AMG variants to choose from. The SL63 provides a comfortable ride, even on broken pavement in the Midwest. At high steering inputs, the SL63 can be turned with the same ease as the smaller AMG GT. Poor visibility, crooked interior trim, and a miniscule trunk are all negatives.
