It's best to think of the SL not just as the SLK's larger older brother, but a true grand luxury cruiser. Like every Mercedes, it does pretty much everything perfectly. It exudes elitism at its finest as Wall Street managers attempt to look semi-honest in one of the world's most competent coupes. Dishonest people on Wall Street? Another subject matter entirely, but back to the SL-Class and its near perfect engineering and design.
This, in my opinion, is what Mercedes does best: a beautifully attired inside and out large coupe that's appropriately driven on either the streets of Beverly Hills or the Autobahn. For 2011, there's a SL550 Night Edition where only 100 will be built. Each has a black matte paint job with premium black leather, 19-inch AMG wheels, and Silver brake calipers. Perhaps Wall Street can learn a thing or two from the SL Class when it comes to competency.
