Mercedes-AMG SL review: the sportiest SL ever! 2022

December 22, 2022

Need help buying your next car? Click the following link and my team and I will help you choose your ideal car at a fair price – from Mat Watson!

This is the all-new Mercedes-AMG SL!

Now the all-new SL has something very special compared to its predecessor – it’s now exclusively available as an AMG!

With that in mind, you can imagine performance is pretty good. And trust us, it is! The range-topper is the SL 63, which comes packing a 4-litre twin-turbo V8 under the bonnet that can put down an astonishing 585hp & 800Nm of torque! What’s more, it’ll propel you to 60mph in just 3.6 seconds!

But wait, it gets better! Once you step inside, you’ll notice a whole load of similarities to the S-Class, with a huge infotainment screen dominating the dashboard. You’ll also find high-quality materials throughout the cabin, while upfront there’s a pair of comfortable sports seats.

However, as you can imagine, all that quality and performance doesn’t come cheap, with the AMG SL having a starting price of £125,000!! So is it worth it? You’ll have to stick with Mat to find out!

    Super Ugly! The old one is a legend

  4. Mercedes saved 43 kgs by making it a convertible, was it worth it ? Perhaps if you live in California, but in Britain, Scandinavia, probably not.

  5. Looks beautiful, and the fact that its also an awd v8, only thing I don’t like is that it’s a soft top.

  6. Hope there will be some 3rd party camera-room mirror for a better view. 7:03

  7. Bumblebee

  8. I just got mine SL 55 Performance and it has 4 exhaust pipes behind the square ones. Don’t know why you have only 2 exhaust pipes on this model

  9. I disagree with you.

  10. You're not sporty if you gain weight.

  11. I can't believe this car is only 200kg heavier than a BMW M4

  12. That was a fun review 😂

  13. Don’t know who this chap is, but as someone who’s only here incase I win the lotto tonight, he’s part of the reason I made it to the end. Beautiful car too.

  14. The air vents are modern bulls-eye air vents first done by Bentley, they are the finest vents ever made.

  15. 7:00 debatable. Everything is relative. Compared with, say, a new C63S, it is light. There you go!

  16. This dude is a total tool

  17. $250k for this?? No thank you

  18. it's ridiculous to have this many fake vents on what's meant to be a performance car

  19. this guys the best

    You should buy this if you have the money ,because this will be the last gen of SL with a V8 !

  21. They should have put this engine in the new c class

  22. Nonotidu tubenosm duridudu First coming

  23. 310kg heavier than a 911 992 convertible 4S that is a hell of a lot you are going to feel on the Rd 😮

  24. Do they do the same car without all the bullshit gadgets? They're awful and going to look so dated in a few years.

  25. Am a dedicated BMW fan, but this is something beautiful pity for the soft-top, because I have a soft top BMW and had to renew several times because of knife cuts

  26. When was driving a Mercedes SL, r107, fifty years ago in the seventies, everyone was looking at her with amazement, admiration and love, it was beautiful and wonderful, it was like (a beautiful doll) and very, very special and it was the undisputed queen of the road.
    But now this Mercedes does not attract attention at all among the rest of the cars, and its price is 150,000 dollars. It is unfortunate and ridiculous.

  27. Looks too blobby




  31. Do you guys know if the Mercedes AMG GT C Roadster has officially been discontinued? I've been thinking of getting it in the next year and just found out it's not being remade (according to a salesperson). They're offering the 2023 SL at the official dealership which I'm not sold upon.

  32. Nice Jaguar F Type 👍🏼

  33. dream 🥺🥺💙

  34. Maybe in future marcedis the engin will start automatically when pressure sensors under the drivers seat is activated
