The concept is fairly bizarre. The brand new technology Mercedes-AMG SL is developed by AMG on a devoted platform that corresponds to a real sports activities automobile. In our take a look at a number of months in the past, we seen the very agency adaptive suspension, typical of a sports activities automobile, however not likely suited to a GT. That’s why the concept of a Maybach model on a sports activities platform appears slightly unusual.

Nonetheless, Ola Kallenius, Mercedes CEO, has introduced that there shall be a Maybach model of the SL. Certainly although, Mercedes will tune the suspension differently, and we anticipate a V12 engine beneath the hood of the Maybach model.
Within the case of the S-Class, the luxurious limousine is obtainable with 6- and 8-cylinder engines, whereas the Maybach S-Class is supplied with 8- and 12-cylinder engines in addition to the PHEV system, which relies on an inline 6-cylinder engine.

The Mercedes-AMG SL is at present accessible with 4-cylinder (AMG SL 43) and 8-cylinder (AMG SL 55 and 63) engines. That’s why we consider there gained’t be a Maybach SL model with a 4-cylinder engine, nevertheless it’s potential that the Maybach badge will seem on the hood of the 8-cylinder model, in addition to on a brand new 12-cylinder model.

Within the former technology Mercedes SL (R231), Mercedes had, till 2018, a V12 model referred to as the SL 65 AMG outfitted with a 6-litre V12 engine creating 630 PS and 1000 Nm transmitted to the rear axle by way of a 7-speed automated gearbox. A successor for this mannequin would match completely with the Maybach model profile.

Within the new-generation Maybach S-Class, Mercedes has managed to couple the 6-litre, 612 PS, V12 engine with a 9-speed automated transmission and all-wheel drive, so this powertrain might additionally slot in a future Maybach SL V12. A V12-powered roadster is a rarity in the intervening time after Aston Martin DB12 dropped out the V12, and the Rolls-Royce Daybreak is already 9 years outdated in the marketplace.

Mercedes-Maybach SL

Chief designer Gorden Wagener posted a photograph on Instagram displaying a entrance part of an SL with a two-tone painted hood and the well-known Maybach grille. However he didn’t give any technical particulars about it.

Mercedes has one other improvement course in thoughts. Simply as Ferrari has created a spread of restricted version fashions referred to as the “Ikona Sequence”, Mercedes needs to create the same vary, referred to as the “Mythos Sequence”, aimed toward passionate collectors.

Gorden Wagener additionally posted a preview on Instagram of a Speedster model of the SL. From the profile photograph Wagener confirmed, it’s clear that the photograph reveals an SL and the rear half is just like a Speedster.
An SL Speedster could possibly be the primary mannequin within the new restricted version “Mythos Sequence” vary. This restricted sequence has no connection to Maybach however may need the identical V12 engine beneath the hood to certify its exclusivity. Some rumors announce the SL Speedster for 2025, whereas for a Maybach SL, there is no such thing as a precise date but.
