Famous for its gullwing doors, the Mercedes-Benz 300 SL of the 1950s became an instant classic, and today perfect examples cost serious collectors over $1 million. Nearly 70 years later, the 2020 Mercedes-Benz SL remains one of the world’s most prestigious and desirable luxury convertibles.
Few cars have stood for wealth and sophistication for so long. Now in its sixth generation, the Mercedes SL is as much a global symbol of success as it ever was. And its performance has never been more impressive. With as much as 449 horsepower, it’s incredibly quick and fun to drive, but this two-seater is also refined, understated, and comfortable enough to be enjoyed every day. It competes with the BMW 8-Series convertible and the new Lexus LC convertible, which will reach dealers this summer.
