    2017-SL-SL550-ROADSTER-MODEL-PAGE-001-MCF.jpg
    4.7L V8 biturbo engine
    Standard
    Generating 449 hp, the 4.7-liter V8 combines twin turbos and numerous advances to deliver more torque from less fuel, with cleaner emissions. Rapid-multispark ignition can fire up to four times per millisecond, while high-pressure Direct Injection can fine-tune fuel spray in 0.1 millisecond, reducing emissions, fuel consumption and noise. A lightweight diecast-alloy block, widely variable valve timing, reduced friction, and clever "on-demand'' ancillary components further boost efficiency.

    ECO Start/Stop system
    2017-SL-ROADSTER-MODEL-PAGE-002-MCF.jpg
    ECO Start/Stop system
    Standard
    A fuel-saving ECO Start/Stop system automatically shuts off the engine at stoplights and other idle situations. As soon as the driver lifts off the brake, the engine instantly restarts, for immediate acceleration response. The ECO Start/Stop system can also be shut off by the driver at any time.

    2017-SL-ROADSTER-MODEL-PAGE-003-MCF.jpg
    9G-TRONIC 9-speed automatic transmission with shift paddles
    Standard
    With a greater range of ratios and shorter steps between gears, the new 9-speed automatic changes gears more quickly but nearly imperceptibly. Along with more seamless delivery of power, the lighter, more versatile transmission enhances comfort and fuel-efficiency. A sleek electronic selector and sporty shift paddles let you change gears without taking a hand from the steering wheel.

    DYNAMIC SELECT
    2017-SL-ROADSTER-MODEL-PAGE-004-MCF.jpg
    DYNAMIC SELECT
    Standard
    A multimode drive program selector on the console lets you transform the car's character with the twist of a rotary knob. Four modes (ECO, Comfort, Sport and Sport+) alter the throttle response, shift points, steering effort, ECO Start/Stop and more. A fifth "Individual" mode allows you to create a mode of your own, even letting you set the transmission for purely manual shifting. With the available Active Body Control (ABC) suspension, a CURVE mode enhances cornering comfort.

    Semi-active suspension with adaptive damping
    2017-SL-ROADSTER-MODEL-PAGE-005-MCF.jpg
    Semi-active suspension with adaptive damping
    Standard
    For more nimble, precise handling, virtually all components of the 4-wheel multilink suspension are made of rigid, lightweight aluminum. The semi-active Adaptive Damping System continually adjusts to driving inputs and the road surface, and can respond at each wheel in just 10 milliseconds to sharpen handling while the ride stays silky.
    Comfort and Sport modes let you tailor handling response and ride firmness to your present driving style.

    Perforated front brakes with 4-piston calipers
    2017-SL-SL550-ROADSTER-MODEL-PAGE-007-MCF.jpg
    Perforated front brakes with 4-piston calipers
    Standard
    Perforated and internally ventilated front brake discs help maintain maximum braking performance by better dissipating the heat of hard or repeated braking that can cause brake fade. The perforations are cast in place when the rotor is made, to prevent the creation of stress points that can occur during conventional cross-drilling. For more even and powerful braking force, the front discs feature large 4-piston calipers. (Disclaimer)

    Sport exhaust system
    2017-SL-ROADSTER-MODEL-PAGE-008-MCF.jpg
    Sport exhaust system
    Standard
    The SL sport exhaust system not only enhances performance but serenades it with the rich sounds emanated from the four polished-chrome tailpipes. Electronically controlled internal flaps respond to engine rpm and throttle loads, as well as the selected drive mode, to serenade acceleration and higher revs with a rewardingly throaty growl, yet with a pleasingly mellow tone during relaxed, quiet cruising.
  • Torque Vectoring Brake
    Torque Vectoring Brake
    Standard
    Standard Torque Vectoring Brake technology provides additional control and precision in turns via targeted rear-wheel braking. If the vehicle's Electronic Stability Program (ESP®) detects understeer while cornering, the system applies the brake to the inside rear wheel, temporarily shifting torque distribution in favor of the outside wheel. This causes the vehicle to gently pivot in compensation, putting it on a line of travel, or vector, better suited to the turn.
  • Electromechanical steering with Direct-steer
    Electromechanical steering with Direct-steer
    Standard
    Advanced, lightweight and highly efficient electromechanical power steering allows for more precise control of steering effort and feedback. Direct-steer automatically varies the steering ratio based on how far you turn the steering wheel. It provides quicker steering and lighter effort while parking while maintaining excellent directional stability and crisp feel at higher speeds.

    Active Body Control® (ABC) with CURVE function
    Optional / $4,090
    ABC is a fully active suspension whose advanced sensors and electronically controlled hydraulics help counteract the effects of roll, vibration, pitch, dive and squat. ABC can effectively suppress body roll, for uncannily flat cornering. Automatic lowering at speed helps improve aerodynamics and stability. A new advancement lets the car lean into corners much like a motorcyclist or skier, heightening enjoyment for the driver and passenger, while reducing the the lateral forces they feel.
