Mercedes-Benz launches SL-Class Sports Package

Mercedes-Benz has revealed a new Sports Package for the SL-Class roadster. The interior features silver-coloured contrast stitching, perforated leather and aluminium trim. Outside, large wheels, silver-painted front brake callipers, and perforated discs create a sportier appearance.

The 7G-TRONIC Sport seven-speed automatic transmission with steering-wheel shift paddles helps the driving experience live up to the car's looks.

The new large 19-inch wheels (8.5 inches at the front with 255/35 ZR19 Y tyres, 9.5 inches at the rear with 285/30 ZR19 Y tyres) are the most striking visual feature, with five twin spokes and a hubcap cover featuring the Mercedes star and laurel wreath. Dark-tinted tail light units form a further distinguishing feature. The kit is priced at â,¬2975 in Europe.
