It’s Chris’s turn to take the wheel of the 2013 Mercedes SL and gives us his verdict on the latest version of this motoring icon. He likes to start with a bit of history though. You see, to really appreciate what the SL is all about you can’t just hop in and go for a drive. This car comes from a royal family with a glorious pedigree, beginning with the 300SL, continuing kings like the Pagoda, and oh yea, the one Bobby Ewing made famous.

Let’s see where the new boy stands…

2013 Mercedes SL500 is powered by a 320 kW (435 hp) which is 20 percent more powerful than the old one. Thanks to lightweight aluminum body of the new model, the 500 goes from 0 to 60mph in under 5 seconds. It kinda renders the SL63 AMG pointless.
