First spy pictures have started to appear of the 2012 Mercedes-Benz SL. Codenamed R231, the next-gen SL will remain a coupe-cabriolet as well as halo car for the Mercedes-Benz brand. Car Magazine is reporting that the 2012 model has been co-developed alongside the new SLS, so we might just see some technologies and features included in the new SL model. As far as the engines go, we might see a SL350 – 3.5 liter V6 with 290bhp and a SL500 (probably 550 in the US) with a 5.5 liter V8 and 390 bhp. There will of course be an AMG version as well, maybe with a similar V8 that is found in the new SLS, as Mercedes-Benz has stated in the past that they will focus on developing stronger and more fuel efficient V8, so a V12 is kinda unlikely.
