Mercedes-AMG SL 55 India

Mercedes-Benz will launch the SL roadster in India on June 22, 2023. The iconic Mercedes-Benz SL, currently in its seventh-generation, will be sold in India in its SL55 roadster guise, and like its predecessors, will be brought in as a CBU. The SL has been a popular model for Mercedes-Benz in India with quite a few examples of almost every generation present in the country.

Mercedes-Benz SL returns to India after over a decade

The SL-Class is the flagship two-door roadster for Mercedes-Benz globally and its lineage goes all the way back to the iconic 190SL from the '50s. The Mercedes-Benz SL was sold in India only in fifth generation guise that went on sale back in 2012, while the sixth-generation SL was not sold here.

The seventh-generation SL headed to our shores technically replaces the S-Class cabriolet, the AMG GT Roadster and the sixth-gen SL in the German brand’s global line-up. It brings back the fabric roof and the 2+2 layout of earlier iterations. It also receives four-wheel drive and four-wheel steering as standard.

India will get the Mercedes-AMG SL55, which brings back the '55' name to a Mercedes-AMG model since the G55 SUV ceased production in 2012. It is powered by Mercedes-AMG’s M176 4.0-litre twin-turbo, V8 petrol engine good for 478hp and 700Nm; this engine is already in use in a number of Mercedes-Benz and Mercedes-AMG models globally.
