All standard equipment and options also activated in the configurator




With the new Mercedes-AMG SL 43 (combined fuel consumption 9.4–8.9 l/100 km, combined CO2 emissions 214–201 g/km) [1], entry into the iconic world of the sporty roadster is possible from just 118,708.45 euros[2].


This is the base price for the 2+2-seater with agile rear-wheel drive, which is now available to order. The extensive standard equipment includes the electrically operated multilayer fabric soft top, 19‑inch AMG alloy wheels, DIGITAL LIGHT, the AMG high-performance composite braking system and the AIRPANEL active air control system.


Added to this are the active rear spoiler, the “hyperanalogue” cockpit with MBUX infotainment system and tilt-adjustable multimedia touchscreen, as well as comfort seats with ARTICO man-made leather and fabric. The numerous options allow for a wide range of possibilities for individualisation. The AMG 2.0-litre four-cylinder engine develops 280 kW (381 hp) and provides a maximum torque of 480 Nm.



An electric exhaust gas turbocharger is being used here in a production vehicle for the first time anywhere in the world. This technology originated in Formula 1™ and guarantees particularly spontaneous responsiveness across the entire rev range.



The turbocharger is powered by the 48-volt on-board electrical system, which also feeds the belt-driven starter generator (RSG) that provides an additional boost of 10 kW (14 hp) for a short time. Accelerating from 0 to 100 km/h takes just 4.9 seconds, while the top speed is limited to 275 km/h.



The exterior design of the SL 43 differs in individual details from the two eight-cylinder models. For example, it has differentiated front and rear aprons as well as round instead of angular double tailpipe trim. The defining features of the SL body design include the long wheelbase, the short overhangs, the long bonnet, the passenger compartment set further back with steeply raked windscreen, and the powerful rear end.



This results in the typical SL proportions. Opening and closing the three-layer fabric soft top takes only about 15 seconds thanks to the space-saving Z-fold, and is possible up to a speed of 60 km/h.



With its innovative engine concept, the new entry-level model of the 2+2-seater roadster is also aimed at particularly tech-savvy buyers. The combination of a lightweight four-cylinder engine on the front axle and rear-wheel drive permits the SL 43 to display very particular handling characteristics.



A fascinating example of the extensive transfer between Formula 1™ technology and the development of production vehicles is provided by the electric exhaust turbocharger. The technology increases agility and thus driving fun, while at the same time improving the efficiency of the drive system.



A thin electric motor, measuring just four centimetres, is integrated directly on the turbocharger shaft between the turbine wheel on the exhaust side and the compressor wheel on the intake side. This drives the shaft of the turbocharger directly and thus accelerates the compressor wheel before the exhaust gas flow takes over the drive in the conventional way.




 As a result, the combustion engine reacts even more spontaneously to accelerator pedal commands, and the overall driving experience is more dynamic. In addition, the electrification of the turbocharger enables higher torque at low revs.






Optional equipment and features: from sportily dynamic to luxuriously elegant




Numerous options mean a wide range of possibilities for individualising the new entry-level Mercedes‑AMG SL 43. Here are a select few.
