A Mercedes AMG with only 380 hp? Are we in 2003 again?

Finally an entry-level SL to rival the 911 Carrera Cabriolet (plus Targa) and LC500 Convertible! To a lesser degree, it also rivals the Z4 M40i and the Mustang GT Convertible.

That thing is never going to rival a 911 with a curb weight of almost 2 tons lmao

650 to 500 lbs more but with more torque and hp

Still the same kind of power in the same segment, and far more aerodynamic as well. Much better power and torque per liter as well.

It's a very fast car. It rivals the 911 in terms of price as well.

You're the type of guy who compares a Hellcat to an Aventador just because they have similar power, yet we all know the Lambo will easily leave it in the dust. Same thing here. Horsepower isn't everything

I didn't say Hellcat and Aventador are in the same segment. Not even a competitor for Huracán. The (new, at least) SL and 911 Cab are marketed as competitors because the GT rivals the 911 Coupe, and GT Roadster is dead.

Straight-line performance does not matter for a luxury cruiser costing over US$80k. LC500, F-Type P450, and M850i Convertible are all logical competitors even if their performance results are very different.

It's the first production vehicle to use an electric exhaust gas turbocharger.

Mercedes says 0-62 mph (0-100 km/h) arrives in 4.9 seconds. Flat out, the entry-level SL will reach 171 mph (275 km/h
