New Arrival: SL400 is the Discount Flagship Merc Convertible

Reveal / Comments

On a stratum where discounts start at $84,295.

The newest member to join the expanding Mercedes-Benz family, the 'entry-level' SL400 has just hit American markets, offering shoppers the cheapest way yet to get behind the wheel of Mercedes' flagship drop-top convertible. The SL400 is powered by a 3.0-liter twin-turbo V6, slotting well below the SL550's 4.6-liter turbocharged V8. With a starting price of $84,295, it also offers a $22,900 discount over its more powerful big brother.

Even so, for a country club cruiser, the SL400 will produce a satisfying 329 horsepower and 354 lb-ft of torque, enabling it to achieve 0-60 mph times of 5.1 seconds. With a standard panoramic glass roof, burl walnut or black ash trim, Harman/Kardon audio system and loads of leather, it shouldn't feel all that discounted on the inside.
