2009 Mercedes-Benz SL550

The Mercedes Sport-Leicht (SL) has cemented itself as one of the most popular luxury car segment. Since the launch of the original in 1957, Mercedes has sold more than 633,000 SLs. Now, 2009 Mercedes-Benz SL arrives with a significant face-lift. The most obvious alterations are aesthetic, but there are also subtle revisions to the interior and the mechanical package. The new nose is more aggressive and masculine, even strident. For the engine SL will continue to feature either the 388-horsepower 5.5-liter V8 or the 517-hp twin-turbo 6.0-liter V12, both of which have been tuned for a modest improvement in fuel consumption. The base price for our 2009 Mercedes-Benz SL550 was $96,775, before you added all kinds of optional premium package like Air Scarf, massaging seats, and adaptive cruise control option which will up the price well over $100,000.
