The current Mercedes-Benz SL-Class has been in existence since 2013 and, with a new model expected in 2021, Stuttgart sends a grand message to its luxurious GT. In this case, we mean that literally and figuratively, with the 2020 SL Grand Edition. Mercedes considers this special model "particularly exclusive", available on the SL 450 and 550, primarily as a set of appearance. However, all Grand Edition Mercs vehicles will use a sport suspension that firms things up and drops the car a tad.
On the outside, the Grand Edition models receive exclusive 10-spoke AMG forged wheels that measure 19 inches at the front and 20 inches at the rear. These wheels are glossy black with polished faces to help spectators notice that this car has something different. Graphite gray is the only exterior color available in the United States. It is complemented by a chrome trim and matte silver on the front fascia for a unique look. The subtle insignia of the SL Grand Edition on the wings are the only other external clues to distinguish the special car from the peloton.
Inside, there is also a little more bling-bling. Brown pearl-brown leather and diamond-studded seats adorn the seats as well as the SL Grand Edition brand in the head restraints. The steering wheel also has a neat leather look, even though the handles feature perforated black Nappa leather.
Long productions for the SL class are not out of the ordinary. The R230 of the previous generation remained stuck for nine years and the fourth-generation R129 lasted 12 years. The current SL has been revamped a few years ago, but with a new model on deck, Mercedes gives the current SL, as well as the SLC, an additional pump and circumstance to end the legacy. of R231.
Mercedes does not say how many Grand Edition models will be built or how much they will cost. However, we know that the two special places will not be marketed until next year.
Fresh air for the luxury roadster
Stuttgart. Grand Edition – this is as well as some particularly exclusive models of the Mercedes-Benz Special Edition. The new Grand Edition models of the SL 450 and SL 550 offer many interior and exterior features that create an even more luxurious driving experience. The exclusive Roadster will arrive at US dealerships in 2020.
The SL Grand Edition is available in graphite gray with bright chrome and matte silver applications to give the front bumper a special look. Grand Edition models feature AMG 10-spoke forged alloy rims exclusive to the front and rear, 19 and 20 inches. These are painted in glossy black and have a lip and very bright rim spokes. Badges with the logo of the SL Grand Edition placed laterally on the fenders make a subtle reference to the status of the special model.
The designo leather Tundra Brown Pearl with its shimmering metallic surface draws attention to the interior, with details such as a fine diamond quilting, a Golden Olive Pearl designo piping and a special pattern logo embroidered on the headrests. The multifunction sports steering wheel is also designed in Tundra Brown Pearl leather. The grip zone is particularly easy on the black perforated Nappa leather hand. The Grand Edition will also receive the sport suspension, which is lowered by 10 mm for a firmer adjustment and sportier driving dynamics.
