Mercedes-Benz SL Special Edition "Mille Miglia 417" (R 231) 2015

Exclusive SL passion

Stuttgart – Mercedes-Benz celebrates the 60th anniversary of a memorable motor racing success with an extraordinary special model of the SL Roadster.

Its name commemorates the unexpected victory of a 300 SL in the production sports cars class at the 1955 “Mille Miglia”, one of the world’s most challenging long-distance races.     

What’s more: the SL Special Edition “Mille Miglia 417” provides a special experience of the unique symbiosis of maximum comfort and motor racing spirit that traditionally characterises every SL.

The Special Edition adds a distinctive note, among other things, with red exterior highlights and fine materials in the exclusively appointed interior.

Mercedes-Benz SL Special Edition "Mille Miglia 417" (R 231) 2015

The Mercedes-Benz SL Roadster is more than an icon. Passion shapes its character and its charisma – in the past and today. Legendary vehicles and their stories dominate the model history.

One of them is told by the SL that started the famous “Mille Miglia” in 1955 with race number 417 at 4:17 am. After 11 hours, 29 minutes and 21 seconds it had completed the race distance of 1597 kilometres on public roads from Brescia to Rome and back.

Driven by the American private driver John Fitch with assistance from his co-driver Kurt Gessl, it crossed the finish line to great acclaim in fifth place of the overall standings and as the winner of the production sports cars, leaving numerous racing prototypes behind.

Production 300 SL cars also took second and third place in this class.

After 60 years the new SL Special Edition “Mille Miglia 417” now expresses the laudatory proclamation about this victory and the car with race number 417.

For this reason Mercedes-Benz also integrated the legendary number “417” into the badge of this special model as a reminder – a symbol for the passion that helps shape the charisma of every SL Roadster.

Performance, pronounced sportiness and innovative roadster comfort are hallmark fundamental features that also distinguish the Special Edition “Mille Miglia 417”.

The 6-cylinder engine in the SL 400 with 245 kW  (333 hp) and the eight-cylinder in the SL 500 with 335 kW (455 hp) enable top sporting performance.

As standard, ESP® Curve Dynamic Assist, an adaptive adjustable damping system, and in particular the optionally available unique Active Body Control ABC deliver sporty lateral dynamics while offering outstanding comfort at the same time.

The design of the Special Edition meets high aesthetic standards and underscores its spirit with stylish red highlights. Red is the colour of the lip on the front spoiler, and a red trim strip on the rear spoiler contrasts with the matte carbon.

Red brake callipers gleam through the spokes of the black AMG Performance wheels, which sport subtle red surrounds and have diameters of 19 inches at the front and 20 inches at the rear.

The Special Edition “Mille Miglia 417” comes as standard with a magnetite black metallic paint finish. Optionally the two designo night black magno and designo cashmere white magno matte paint finishes or the designo diamond white bright shiny paintwork are also available.

The designo paintwork lends the vehicle an individual and exclusive character.

Mercedes-Benz has further upgraded the luxurious yet sporty interior with fine materials and meticulous master craftsmanship. The AMG Line seats as well as the black centre console with contrasting inlays and red edging are eye-catching features.

The leather headrests sport an embossed carbon structure and an embroidered “SL Mille Miglia” label. Red edging also outlines the black door centre panels with red armrests.

The easy-to-grip steering wheel is wrapped in red and black nappa leather with sporty embossed carbon structure and bolsters the sporty ambience. The trim elements have a matte carbon finish.

The black floor mats with red edging sport an embroidered “1000 Miglia” label.

The SL Special Edition “Mille Miglia 417” is available as an SL 400 and as an SL 500 model. The price premium for the classy and extensive optional extras that lend the SL Roadster a special flair is EUR 14,800 for the SL 400, and EUR 12,800 for the SL 500 (net). The Special Edition can be ordered from 7th April.

Market launch for SL 63 AMG and SL 65 AMG 2LOOK Edition

Extraordinary and even more dynamic

Affalterbach.  In the new 2LOOK Edition the SL 63 AMG and the SL 65 AMG 2LOOK Edition sport an unusual, dynamic style. The combination of exclusive interior and exterior equipment and appointments make both high-performance roadsters from Mercedes-AMG even more attractive.

With immediate effect the AMG 5.5-litre V8 biturbo engine in the SL 63 AMG boasts an output of 430 kW (585 hp) and offers a torque of 900 newton metres. The new AMG models will be at the dealers from mid-June.

The 2LOOK Edition excites with thrilling contrasts and stands for pure exclusivity: The vario-roof, the cross-strut in the AMG front apron, the exterior mirror housings, the fins on the wings and bonnet, the surrounds of the LED daytime running lamps, the spoiler lip on the tail end and the diffuser insert in the AMG rear apron all shine resplendent in high-gloss black.

The tailpipe trim elements of the AMG sports exhaust system feature a black chrome-plated finish, while high-gloss chrome is reserved for the twin louvre of the radiator grille and the AMG lettering.

Further highlights are the large Edition-specific 48.3 cm (19-inch) or 50.8 cm (20-inch) AMG 10-spoke forged wheels, painted in matt black and featuring a high-sheen finish, and the red-painted brake callipers.

The driver and passenger sit in AMG sports seats featuring an embossed AMG emblem in the backrest, an AMG-specific diamond pattern in Exclusive nappa leather and contrasting trim in designo platinum white pearl nappa leather.

The door centre panels also sport the AMG-specific diamond design; here too, the fine designo leather in platinum white pearl adorns the side sections of the armrests, the doors and the centre armrest.

This exclusive look is underscored by an AMG performance steering wheel in nappa leather/Alcantara® with a bezel in high-gloss black. The steering wheel features a high-quality hand-crafted finish with white contrasting topstitching.

In the lower part it bears an insert in designo platinum white pearl nappa leather plus black marking in the 12 o’clock position.

The two-tone look is defined by designo trim in black piano lacquer (no-cost option: AMG carbon-fibre trim), floor mats with AMG lettering and an insert in designo platinum white pearl leather plus the surrounds of the air outlets in high-gloss black.

The additional charges for the 2LOOK Edition models are 9401 euros (SL 63 AMG) and 5355 euros (SL 65 AMG). All prices apply to Germany incl. VAT in each case.

SL 63 AMG 2LOOK Edition:                     € 169,991.50
