2014 Mercedes-Benz SL-Class Exterior
Cars don’t get much more stylish or head-turning than the 2014 Mercedes-Benz SL-Class. The sculpted lines and bold front fascia give on-lookers an idea of just how fast (and expensive) this roadster is, and standard 18-inch wheel and LED running lights only bolster curb appeal.
2014 Mercedes-Benz SL-Class Performance
The 2014 Mercedes-Benz SL-Class’s base 4.6-liter turbocharged V8 is one that most vehicles can’t match with their top-end offering, as it generates 429 horsepower and 516 lb-ft of torque, but it only gets better from there. The turbocharged 5.5-liter V8 makes 530 horsepower and 590 lb-ft of torque, and the almost gaudy 6.0-liter turbocharged V12 pumps out an immense 621 horsepower and 738 lb-ft of torque, propelling the SL-Class from 0-60 mph in just 3.9 seconds.
