2013 Mercedes-Benz SL Class At The Detroit Auto Show: Video

Follow Nelson

When we first saw the 2013 Mercedes-Benz SL Class in the metal at the company's Carlsbad design studio, we weren't allowed to take any photos or talk about what we saw. That's no longer the case, however, with the full details in the wild and the car on display in Detroit this week.

Packing a new 4.6-liter V-8 engine and more technology than your nearest Best Buy, the 2013 SL Class is a no-bones super-luxury roadster. From the fancy water-jet wipers to the photochromic roof, from the all-new yet somewhat classically reminiscent design to the truly fantastic interior, the SL is a car to be seen to be truly understood--no matter whether you love or hate the new look.

  1. Looks so much like my Chrysler Crossfire it gives me gratification on my choice three years ago. The Crossfire was one of the positive things to come out of the ill-fated Daimler/Chrysler partnership. I've owned two Crossfires and I'm a Crossfire owner for life.

  2. In todays day of electronic sensors it just seems so stupid for a rolls to get caught with the top down...Other manufacturers have sensors for wipe activity, variable wires so why not an automatic senor to raise the top in the rain...If I paid a half million for the car I’d make sure they had one included in the package...
