Buyer's notes

Target Price team says:

Mercedes’ big, luxurious convertible is now in its sixth generation. Two V8 petrol versions are available, along with one V12, but it’s hard to look past the entry-level SL350 Blue Efficiency, because its 3.5-litre V6 engine combines strong performance with over 40mpg.

As ever, the SL gives buyers some ground-breaking technology: not only is it built largely from aluminium (a first in a Mercedes production car), it also includes features such as the optional ‘Magic Sky Control’ roof¸ which switches from transparent to opaque at the touch of a button.
