New Mercedes-Benz SL Roadster
January 6, 2012
Boasting a raft of innovative features and intelligent design concepts, the new 2012 Mercedes-Benz SL-Class Roadster remains true to its tradition as a technological trendsetter.
With the SL350 weighing 140 kilos less due to its full aluminium bodyshell, the redeveloped SL-Class Roadster is more dynamic and fuel efficient than its predecessor. As well as achieving an absolute top value in torsional strength, the sophisticated corrosion prevention measures ensure that its pristine aspect is preserved for much longer.
Pioneering the world’s first adaptive windscreen wipe/wash system, MAGIC VISION CONTROL, the new SL-Class Roadster revolutionises the concept of windscreen washing whilst driving. Delivering water directly to the wiper blade via a duct system, it cleans the windscreen without the familiar splash of water that can disrupt visibility – especially at night or when the sun is low in the sky.
Offering three partly autonomous wash programmes which are integrated with the seasons and specific driving conditions, the wiper blades can also be optionally fully heated to prevent snow and ice from freezing on the blade – groundbreaking technology unique to Mercedes-Benz.
Coupled with the unique FrontBass system, also celebrating its world premier, the new SL-Class Roadster resonates clear, crisp sound by utilising the free spaces at the front of the footwell for its bass loudspeakers. The optionally available Harman Kardon® Logic 7® surround sound system or Bang & Olufsen integrated digital system add further definition to the acoustics – making for an all-round emotive experience even with the top down.
