Icon Meets Icon: Presenting the Mercedes 300 SL Used by Andy Warhol in “Cars” Series

It’s been 35 years since the legendary Andy Warhol, the leading figure in the visual art movement, passed on. However, his legacy lives on through his pop art, and through the original model of the Mercedes-Benz 300 SL Gullwing that he used as a model for his timeless “Cars” series. The “Cars” series was commissioned by then Daimler-Benz AG in 1986 to mark the centenary of the invention of the modern automobile by Karl Benz. It aims to showcase 80 pictures documenting the colorful history of the automobile from the Daimler Motorized Carriage and the Benz Patent-Motorwagen (Patent-Motorcar) in 1886 up to the cars available in 1986. Unfortunately, Warhol only… Continue Reading »

Mercedes-AMG SL 43 Tech is Derived from F1 Race Cars

Mercedes-Benz just unveiled its new convertible, the Mercedes-AMG SL 43. The seventh-generation SL boasts high performance, more advanced tech, and a new level of enjoyment while driving. However, purists have lately reacted to the decision of the German automaker to skip the six- and eight-pot engines in favor of a turbocharged four-cylinder in this specific model. The AMG SL43 is the entry-level version of its range. Beneath the hood of the car lies a measly 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine, but don’t let that fool you because the integration of a turbocharger with a mild-hybrid 48-volt electric motor allows it to produce up to 376 hp and 479 Nm of torque.

Next-Gen Mercedes-AMG SL Roadster Digitally Unveiled

The next-generation Mercedes-AMG SL finally made its official debut after getting its original digital unveiling date was pushed back for a week. The roadster is already on its seven-decade run and is now an AMG-exclusive vehicle. The new AMG SL serves as a replacement for the Mercedes-AMG GT Roadster. As seen in the official images of the car here, it sports a sharper look with smoothly molded creases amplifying its styling, especially on the sides. It features a wide grin on its Panamericana front grille with vertical slats and more angular lights borrowed from the CLS too.

New Mercedes-AMG SL Roadster Interior Teased… Again

After pushing the digital launch of the Mercedes-AMG SL from October 20 to the 28th, the three-pointed star marque continues to build anticipation for what is about to come from the next-gen series of the high-performance roadster. Just to remind us how awesome it is, the company recently teased the interior of the car again. It’s quite surprising that the new AMG SL didn’t go for the Hyperscreen layout present in the latest EQ models. The decision could be an indication that Merc intends to keep this specific tech in its fully electric vehicles under the EQ badge. However, the roadster stands out on its own with its aviation-inspired instrument… Continue Reading »

2022 Mercedes-AMG SL Goes Plug-in Hybrid

We are only more than a week away from the official unveiling of the new Mercedes-AMG SL roadster, and it looks like its maker has more trims for it than what we originally thought. New spy shots suggest that the car is getting a plug-in hybrid model. The car remains in heavy camouflage, unlike the recent models we have seen so far. However, the auto in the spy shots from Motor1 is unmistakably the AMG SL, because its form is basically the same as the one leaked earlier this month. The exposed areas of the wrap show us the AMG SL’s thin headlamps, Panamericana vertical grille design, huge air intakes… Continue Reading »

Mercedes-AMG SL Leaked Before Official Unveiling

The new Mercedes-AMG SL is scheduled to make its official debut on October 20. However, barely three weeks from the event, the show car version of the roadster has been already been leaked. While we now have a pretty good idea as to what the AMG SL has in store for us based on spy shots, videos, and teasers from its maker, the recent Instagram post of cochespias still carries some surprising revelations about the car. First off, the roadster certainly looks refreshing in its red color compared to the silver version that we have been witnessing in spy shots and trailers. Second, it gives us a closer look at… Continue Reading »

New Mercedes-AMG SL Taking a Stroll at the Nurburgring Roads

With only a little camo left on the Mercedes-AMG SL cars that we have been seeing so far, we expected it to debut at the Munich Motor Show this month. However, since the said event is already packed with new products from the three-pointed star marque, which was highlighted by the new Mercedes-Benz EQE, it’s just wise that they pushed its official unveiling to a later date. Recently, the roadster was seen making its rounds again at the Nurburgring roads. In the latest spy video from Automotive Mike, the AMG SL was witnessed at the Industry Pool around the Nordscheife. Two versions of the car were present: a partially covered… Continue Reading »
