The 2018 Mercedes-Benz SL-Class Roadsters

A perpetual vessel of desire and inspiration, the 2018 Mercedes-Benz SL-Class Roadster family continues to pull away from the pack and chart its own course. In fact, this year’s SL-Class is arguably the best yet, thanks to:

  • Power retractable hardtop
  • Side-mirror logo projectors
  • Optional Active Body Control® with CURVE function
  • Active LED headlamps
  • Pop-up roll bars

Los Angeles and Escondido drivers in search of the new SL-Class can find the roadster they’ve been waiting for at Mercedes-Benz of Temecula.

Biturbo Power at Every Level

No matter which SL-Class model you choose, you’ll be treated to a powerful biturbo engine that generates anywhere from 362 to 621 hp. The base 3.0L V6 inside the SL 450 Roadster can reach 60 mph in a mere 4.9 seconds, with the top tier 6.0L V12 under the hood of the AMG® SL 65 reaching speed in only 3.9 seconds. Other performance highlights include:

  • 9G-TRONIC® 9-speed automatic transmission
  • Shift paddles
  • DYNAMIC SELECT® multi-mode drive program
  • Semi-active suspension with adaptive damping
  • Sport exhaust system
  • Perforated front brakes with 4-piston calipers



Artful Blend of Style and Comfort

The exterior of the SL-Class stuns with bold, 19-inch wheels (20-inch rear wheels on the AMG® SL 65) and LED lighting. Inside, you’re greeted by a two-passenger cabin, complete with a power wind-blocker. The sun-reflecting leather upholstery is designed to withstand the sun as you cruise around San Diego with the top down. Even with the top up, the panorama roof lets you enjoy natural light and fresh air. For greater UV protection, optional MAGIC SKY CONTROL® uses an electrical current to automatically modify the transparency of the roof glass. The SL Roadsters also feature:

  • Dual-zone climate control
  • Heated, power-adjustable front seats
  • Electric trunk partition
  • Multi-color LED ambient lighting
  • 5-year mbrace® Connect Package
  • Optional AIRSCARF® neck-level heating system
  • Optional soft-close doors

Industry-Leading Technology

The SL-Class Roadster boasts a wealth of technological feats that make it a truly innovative and forward-thinking vehicle. At the center of it all is the COMAND® system, which you can operate using the central controller. Standard Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto links your smartphone and COMAND®, letting you respond to messages via voice control or find the nearest gas station in Menifee. Other tech highlights include:

  • COMAND® navigation
  • Standard harman/kardon® Logic 7®* surround sound
  • FrontBass® subwoofers
  • In-dash 6-disc DVD/CD changer and SD card reader
  • Optional iHeartRadio®
Driver Assist

Modern Yet Timeless Design

By crafting the SL Roadster’s body structure almost entirely from aluminum, Mercedes-Benz has shaved nearly 300 pounds off of its already lithe frame. The result is 20% greater rigidity, which means increased comfort, safety, and performance. Sporty stylings, both inside and outside the cabin, make the SL-Class the center of attention wherever it ventures: Some of its most stylish features include:

  • Dash-top analog clock
  • AMG® illuminated door sills
  • Vibrant exterior paints (e.g., Brilliant Blue and designo® Selenite Grey Magno)
  • Optional designo® Bamboo trim
  • Optional sport steering wheel
