Mercedes' low-to-the-ground and stunningly styled rear-drive luxury sports coupe continues for 2005 with a slickly operating power-retractable hardtop that enables it to go from closed coupe to full roadster in a matter of seconds. The base SL500 includes a 302-horsepower 5.0-liter V-8 engine that's mated to a seven-speed-automatic transmission, while the SL600 adds muscle with its 493 horsepower 5.5-liter V-12. On the sportier side, the limited-production SL55 AMG version includes a 493-horsepower 5.5-liter V-8, and a new top SL65 AMG offers a hand-built 6.0-liter twin-turbo V-12 engine that's responsible for a road-blurring 604 horsepower and 738 lbs./ft. of torque. This model is said to be able to sprint from zero to 60 mph in just over four seconds. Four-wheel-disc anti-lock brakes with brake assist, Electronic Stability Program, Automatic Slip Control, side airbags, a pop-up roll bar and the TeleAid emergency system are standard on all versions.
