Spied: Mercedes-Benz SL with Less Hidden

Spy Shots

We've been hearing a lot lately of the upcoming 2012 Mercedes-Benz SL model, and now we have spy shots to accompany descriptions of the car. The prototype was spotted on a test outing in Germany, and it was practically bare. As the camouflage is slowly being shed, we are getting a better look at the overall shape of the next SL. The SL was reported spotted in a vehicle of vehicles, among an Aston Martin Vantage Roadster and a Jaguar XK.

This was probably for benchmarking purposes. The new SL is slated to be powered by an array of Benz powerplants, including a new 3.5-liter V6 and 4.6-liter twin-turbo V8. It will also be lighter than its predecessor, due to the extensive use of carbon-fiber. Expect to see the upcoming Mercedes-Benz SL sometime next year.
