[VIDEO] Mercedes-Benz SL-Class promo released image

The German based automaker Mercedes-Benz has recently launched a black and white commercial for the new 2013 SL-Class.

After being officially presented to the public at the 2012 North American International Auto Show (NAIAS) in Detroit, the new generation of the Mercedes-Benz SL-Class is once again placed into the spotlights, this time with the “help” of a video show in black and white. As a small reminder, the 2013 SL-Class is 50 mm longer and 57 mm wider than the previous once thanks to aluminum, which was entirely used for production, saving 140 kg. Using aluminum on the new SL-Class has also been credited for making the ride agile, sportier, improving the handling and the ride comfort.

According to the car manufacturer, the new SL500 is powered by a 4,663 cc V8 engine, which is generating a total output of 435 horsepower, 12 percent more than its predecessor despite being actually 800 cc smaller. The fuel consumption has also been improved by 22 percent and the torque figure went up from 530 Nm to 700 Nm. The SL500 can accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in 4.6 seconds, compared to the old 5.4 seconds.

The 2013 Mercedes-Benz SL350 is now powered by a 3.499 cc V6 engine, which is developing a total output of 306 horsepower and it has a peak torque of 370 Nm. The new SL350 is burning an average of 6.8 liters of fuel every 100 km and the model can accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in just 5.9 seconds.
