company has chipped it in that driving the car would be almost equivalent to floating in the air because the beast would be an extremely light one. Its structure contains lightweight
magnesium and composites. The pop up rollover hoops and window frames are made from hot form tubular steels because these parts need to be fully loaded and strong to protect carriers.
This new inventory has made it 18% more rigid than the outgoing version making it 50% and 40% higher than the sporty AMG GT Roadster in transverse and longitudinal rigidity
respectively. This analysis means that the new Mercedes Benz SL’s chances of scuttling,
rattling, creaking and shaking has utterly reduced to the barest minimum. It will also enable the driver handle bumps better.

and an 11.9 inch adjustable infotainment screen housed by the thick chrome bezel . The Benz also comes with a 2+2 configuration and two smaller seats behind the huge chairs in the front, including a kids seat behind.

Also the Benz comes with a four-wheel steering.
This enables the rear wheels at above 62mph to turn in a similar direction, however below
62mph they turn in opposite directions to stability. With this 4Matic+ feature, the Mercedes SL can drive through a nine-speed automatic gearbox . The Mercedes Benz SL shares this feature with the E63.
