The new AMG-only model’s fabric top, sleek lines, and available all-wheel drive could turn it into a potential 911 rival.
Mercedes is planning a reset for its SL-class range and is attempting to whet our appetite with teaser shots of the new 2022 Mercedes-AMG SL, which is currently undergoing final winter testing in Sweden.
While the cars are still camouflaged, we can take away quite a bit of information. The retractable hard top which has been a hallmark of the SL for the last two decades makes way for a fabric top again. This helps to achieve a sleek roofline and a lower rear end; the previous model needed a relatively tall trunk to fit the folded roof. To enhance aerodynamics, there is a large, electrically raised rear spoiler, much like on the current AMG GT. For the full story, check out this article from Car And Driver.
