Jason Tests The Mercedes Benz SL Class – Fifth Gear

  1. In my opinion the SL wasn't designed to be a high performance sports car. It is more of a GT car with a little bit of high performance capability

  2. There is a V8 model available. Why did you pick on the V6 model? Mercedes is supposed to discontinue their V6 engine in favor of their new L6 engine.

  3. I have the V8 version of this car. It's not a sports car nor is it a track car, but it is a wonderful ride for two people on a long trip. It is quiet and extremely comfortable with great seats and a good sound system. The steering is a little numb but it goes where it is pointed and with 429hp and +500 lbs of torque it's very short list of cars can keep up with it. More over, maybe it's just mine but, I regularly get 28MPG on the highway driving averaging 75-80MPH in the Rocky Mountains. It also gets good mileage around town. This is not a beautiful car, but top up or down, it's a very good one.

  4. Jason if you bothered to listen to the Harman Kardon system you would realise in a car a £1'150 is good value

  5. In the US we get a way better spec. SL450 is our base model, and you won't find one without the premium package (HK audio, cooled seats, analog clock, keyless go, airscarf, and a few others. ) Even those are harder to find than the SL550 (4.7TT V8.) Those are by far the most popular (and the gas mileage is very good for such a big engine. )

  6. The key issue, is a matter of safety, in case of accident, you can open your right knee in half ! what a ''turn of'' !

  7. Thats bullshit you would have to purposefully take your foot of the pedals at the same time to turn it off utter bullshit no respect for them anymore anything they say ill take with a truckload of salt.

  8. Owned a 2013 SL63 for 6 long months…spent 21 days at the dealership for warranty repairs and drank oil like crazy! IT IS NOT A SPORTS CAR!!! Keep it on the interstate and not a road course. I have owned three previous model years of SL's and they simply ruined the styling in 2013. A big disappointment. Had a 2014 Porsche Turbo S and a 2014 Lamborghini Gallardo Spyder LP550-2 after that and now driving an Audi R8 V10 Plus . The R8 is my FAVORITE car of all time hands down.

  9. Honestly, if its just for cruising, I'll just have an E Class or an S Class, or maybe an E Class coupe if you want style.

  10. Yea I'm an AMG fan boy but not particularly fond of this generation SL's looks. Also just wanna point out that the SL is an S-Class variant and not an E-Class. Meaning it's not a competitor to the 6-Series Convertible. BMW doesn't have anything comparable to the SL. Although it'd be nice to see them bring back the 8-Series and make a Roadster version sooner. Ok, rant over

  11. Now the big Headline is that Compared to Carbon Fibre body, this aluminium version weighs around 540 Kilograms More..!!
