2022 Mercedes SL: new photo...



A few years ago, there were rumors about the next generation SL replacing both the SL and the S-Class coupe. It would have been larger with roomier rear seats.
From what we have seen so far, it doesn't look that way at all. As you can see when compared to the current model, the next-generation actually looks quite a bit sportier. This is expected since the new car is being developed with AMG. 
Under all that camouflage, there are hints of a few retro design cues. The windshield also seems a bit more upright than the current car. Which would be very nice...

I wonder if an EV version is also in the cards...

@K77 This is the SL, not the S-class cabrio. Can't you read? Also, the current S-cabrio has a soft top too, so...

Anonymous, K77 was referring to the lack of a folding hardtop when they said "shame on Mercedes." SL is technically part of the S class, so your assumption they meant the S-class coupe is just that. And you know what happens when you assume...

"SL is technically part of the S class"

What? No. just... no. SL is a standalone moniker, and has been around since the "Gullwing" 300 SL. And the current one uses a bespoke platform, not related to the S-class in any way.

"And you know what happens when you assume..."

No, i don't know what happens when you assume. Please enlighten me, wise one.
