The Mercedes-Benz SL has long served as a defining benchmark in two-seat grand touring. Beginning with the 300SL racer turned road car of the 1950s, the platform never wavered in promoting The Best or Nothing in speed, handling, and durability. The model’s heritage inline-six lineup expanded to include V8 motivation by the 1970s, maintaining contemporary brawn alongside timeless styling. Into the new millennium, SL-badged coupes and convertibles enjoyed continued development among the marque’s most powerful and limited production offerings. For many, 2012 rang in the last iteration true in spirit to the original—and the last to feature six-cylinder power.   


Internally designated R231, the car’s underpinnings claimed a high standard of luxury and performance. The SL450’s 364 horsepower and sub-5 second jaunt to 60mph belied ample tech and opulent comfort beneath a retractable hard top canopy.  In its swan song, the sixth-generation SL arrived in Grand Edition guise for model year 2020. Just 100 units each of both SL450 and SL550 variants received unique Designo interior faire, exterior badging, and staggered AMG 10-spoke wheels. Panoramic roof panels and a model-specific colorway made for a send-off in high style.


This 2020 Mercedes-Benz SL450 Grand Edition presents in Graphite Gray over Tundra Brown Pearl and Golden Oliver Pearl leather as one of 100 produced. Model-specific equipment plus the SL’s sporting capability assemble in fine form throughout. Inside, diamond-quilted Nappa leather features contrast piping plus headrest and floor mat embroidery under its Sky Control panorama retractable hard top. Optional Premium Package, Driver Assistance Package, and standard CarPlay / Android-enabled infotainment plus a suite of included tech fill out its connected cabin. Beneath the surface, 10mm-lowered Sport suspension and selectable drive modes pair with staggered 19” front, 20” rear AMG 10-spoke wheels over cross-drilled brake rotors for performance appeal. Twin-turbo 3.0L power is channeled rearward by 9-speed automatic shifting. Showing just over 35k miles, this fine example is sold with a clean Title, Carfax report, and third-party inspection report.
